This 3-day hands-on workshop explores the production and web publishing of digital video interviews. The publishing of student-conducted interviews has efficacy far beyond the oral history. Consider the benefits of interviews with local authors, scientists, mathematicians, community leaders, artists and musicians.
Using The Urban School's award-winning project, Telling Their Stories: Oral History Archives Project, as an example, participants will learn and practice production techniques, including interview preparation, creating and using a mobile studio, and post-production leading to a public website, complete with digital video and full transcription. See http://www.tellingstories.org for examples.
Production will be done on Apple Macintosh computers, but transferable to other platforms. Each participant will have access to an Apple Macintosh laptop for the duration of the workshop.
