Place: Dubai, Al Bustan Rotana Hotel, Room 230
For our purposes, I think the creation of the narrative is really interesting. Also note that the conclusion they came to was incorrect because this was released before they discovered the passports were all stolen.
Yes, the same Goodwin. Really good, practical advice on making video as part of a research project. Technology is dated, but the nitty-gritty advice is still highly relevant. Ranges from how many cameras and where to put them to how to log your video and summarize the contents.
Hopefully everyone has the readings for tomorrow. Also supply a short video if you can – 90 seconds – best to upload these to the Flickr group that Nancy set up and we can share them from there. We’ll talk about the differences between a narrative in still images and a short video, and discuss the way the medium does/does not affect how a narrative is told. And hopefully we’ll get time for a quick review of iMovie.
It’s a public group, meaning you don’t need an invitation to join. Just search for the group and then join. Then you have the option of posting images and short (<90 second) videos to the group. We’ll use this for sharing images and short videos — easier than the course blog.
Feel free to post *anything* you’d like the rest of us to see.
FYI, videos can take a long time to upload, but are easy to view.
Berkeleysider has a piece about these films about Berkeley’s school lunch program: Lunch Love Community. I watched the one on Flaming Hot Cheetos — well done, and a lot of interesting effects, along with a good story told well. (I guarantee you’ll never again eat a Cheeto guilt-free.)
People who want everything documented (and on Facebook) vs hospitals. Concerns include the photography/video process distracting the medical staff or getting in the way.
But also the video (edited or not) being used to sue the medical staff; and interpreted by juries who don’t know what usually goes on in the delivery room. Someone won a big settlement when a video proved that a nurse-midwife used excessive force. Shades of Rodney King!
