Video Advocacy Guide – 1


Determining the objective of your video, your target audience and preparing to film.


This video series is designed for first time users of video for advocacy, but is also a great refresher for more experienced practitioners. The short videos (ranging in length from 3-5 minutes each) highlight strengths and challenges of using video for human rights advocacy as well as key items to consider before you pick up a camera.

Part 1, “Before Filming”, helps you prepare yourself and the people you’re working with to:

  • identify the goal of your video;
  • link your video to action;
  • understand consent.
