With Jean Christophe Nougaret, head of communications, Médecins Sans Frontières Australia
and Denby Weller, video journalist, Macleay College
In this seminar and workshop we explore the benefits, techniques and challenges of using your mobile phone for video documentation of your research, from fieldwork interviews and focus groups to ethnographic projects.
Jean Christophe Nougaret, head of communications for Médecins Sans Frontières Australia discusses how and why he uses his smartphone to record MSF activities in the field, covering issues of privacy, visibility, immediacy, economy and accessibility.
Then Denby Weller, video journalist with Macleay College and formerly Fairfax Media, will take a short practical workshop covering shot planning, framing, capture, lighting, eyeline and technical execution as well as the basics of video interviewing and how to compile a video story. Participants will conduct a video exercise and so need to bring a fully charged smartphone, with its native video recording application.
