Video as Evidence: Filming Secure Scenes

This short video demonstrates a step-by-step approach that frontline documenters can use or adapt when filming a human rights incident scene also sometimes referred to as a crime scene. Often the “Spiral Approach” shown here cannot be followed as illustrated because a space is too small, you can only film from one precise point versus being able to walk around the scene, a wall is blocking your path or any number of other reasons. So remember, know the rules and know when to break them.

This video accompanies the Filming Secure Scenes section of the Video as Evidence Field Guide.
