Video as Evidence: Mini Guide Compilation



This set of Video as Evidence mini guides contains quick tips and thorough checklists to help activists and first responders working in the field.

  • For online viewing or printing double-sided, half or quarter sheets. (Download)
  • For standard 8.5 x 11, single-sided printing. (Download)

The Video as Evidence Field Guide provides basic and advanced practices activists can use to strengthen the chances that their footage can serve as evidence. It is drawn from conversations with attorneys, investigators, analysts, legal scholars, funders and our peers working on-the-ground where the violations happen, and will aim to improve the reliability and effectiveness of video shot as human rights documentation.
