Video as Evidence: Adding Essential Information to Video



This section of the Video as Evidence Field Guide provides practical tips on how to capture details and add narration during filming so that your work is easier to verify and will strengthen the chances that the video could be used to secure justice. For quick reference, download the mini guide on Adding Essential Information here.

The Field Guide 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. Learn more at
