Those of you who couldn't find the video training course to suit your needs in the four that were listed in "How-To #3" are in luck! We've just discovered the WITNESS Video Advocacy Training Guide's Tips for Filming (60 minutes of instruction in 17 video lessons) and added it to the list. Here's the description given at the Witness website:
This WITNESS Video Advocacy Training Guide incorporates some of the best practices and lessons learned by WITNESS and its allies over the past 18 years. It was created to help human rights defenders and activists evaluate and plan how best to integrate video into their advocacy work... video advocacy is about using visual media as a targeted tool that will engage people to create change.
As I see it this tutorial is a bit more comprehensive than the How2Video and Vimeo Video School Video 101 video tutorials while being better organized than the MetaCafe Production school's materials.
