Creating a Multimedia Story Pt 2.

August 4, 2010

When you go out to do your fieldwork, be just as cautious as you would on a vacation. Plan where you will go and what you will do in each place. Be flexible. Anything can happen and everything can go wrong so have a back up plan handy. If you’re shooting video or pictures, see what the weather is like earlier on. Most importantly remember to pack your essentials when on the field! Keep in mind, on this trip, your camera is your toothbrush. Here are other things you might want to bring as well:

  • Laptop loaded with software such as Photoshop,iMovie and Word to keep your stories timely. 
  • Camera, Video camera and their accessories (lenses, filters, microphones, headphones, batteries, tripod)
  • Lens cleaners such as brush, towels and solution. 
  • Extra batteries
  • Plastic bags to keep cameras safe in weather 
  • Pen and paper to write down details as you’re shooting and interviewing. If all your video and audio suddenly gets deleted, this’ll be handy.
