I’m thinking about the idea of using low-quality video as a tool to inform potential funders of the needs in and around my region. Here, I have put together something along these lines. It was shot with my small pentax (the one in the mint tin), Optio s5i, and edited with Adobe Premier Elements. There was no planning involved. I was taking some photos and decided some video would be good too. I set up an impromptu interview to convey the main points. The file is small enough for quick online viewing (highspeed). It will also play on an MP3 player and I’m thinking of taking the videos back into the field for feedback. Any thoughts on this from your end? Something like this would of course be accompanied by a proper project proposal. The idea here is to communicate a little of the heart of it all as well. Potential funder on this particular project: British Embassy.
