06 Nov Helping citizen witnesses shoot better video
The best way to improve the chances that citizen video can achieve impact is to engage directly with the citizen-shooters on the ground, and with people who are in touch with them in particular situations. To that end, we have developed this website to help you to gather effective training and guidance materials for your needs.
The materials are:
Guides: Quick tips on everything from filming protests and police brutality to obscuring identity, interviewing techniques and more. Available in multiple languages. There are a variety of materials such as the Guide to Interviewing Survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence, a written guide and 6-part video series provide tips from activists, survivors and experts on preparing and conducting interviews in a safe, ethical and effective manner.
