Planning your first project

Choose theme – think small, choose a purpose

Write script and/or storyboard

Check for copyright issues

 

Recording – record audio in one take, remember for every 5 min of video you’ll need 30 min of footage, you can edit out mistakes

Be aware of time issues, patrons get bored fast, break longer projects in to sections

Find people that share your excitement

Be flexible or creative

 

Issues to consider

Impact on visually and hearing impaired users – transcript for audio files, video should have subtitles or post script

Intellectual property – check with institution

 

Copyright issues with music

Very complicated

Mozart might be in public domain, but performer and producer might not be in public domain

Ascap – can buy license from them

Magnatune.com – free creative commons license

Ccmixter.org

 

Space is the biggest issue

Server space

Storage space

Mental space

Time – so much time to edit, much more than recording
