I just wanted to let you know about our Digital Video Production Weekend
for Anthropologists and Social Researchers
is running this month, *14-15 July*, and might be of interest to people on
this list – some of you may even have attended already.
The course teaches practical video skills and discusses how video can be
used to document academic research.
We have space on the July session and there is still time to sign up, but
please do be quick.
If you are keen to take the course but aren't available this month there
are also other dates listed on the website.
Many academics have taken and enjoyed the course, and you can see feedback
It's £180 for students (or unemployed people), and £240 for anyone else.
We also run Editing Workshops
<http://www.spectacle.co.uk/training/video-editing> and a Four Day
covers both production and editing.
**Apologies for cross-posting**

techniques designed specifically for Anthropologists and Social Researchers
who want to learn how to use video in their field research.
Spectacle is an award winning independent television production company

We schedule weekend courses for individuals regularly throughout the year
at our premises in London. However, If you would prefer us to come to you,
we are also able to bring our training to your university or
institution and teach a group in digital video production techniques. In
the past we have trained groups at the University of Cambridge, University
of Lancaster, and the Amsterdam Institute of Social Science Research. We
received excellent feedback on these courses:
“*Mark really knows his subject, and I found the course motivating,
practical and enjoyable. I came out with loads of ideas.” *Student at the
University of Cambridge, Conservation Research Institute.
*“In two days you really get a feel for what you can do with a camera,
theoretically as well as practically.*” Participant at the Amsterdam
Institute for Social Science Research.

This is an intensive, hands-on, weekend training course with emphasis on
developing your practical filming skills, participatory techniques, and
do-it-yourself confidence that will enhance the quality and validity of
filmed fieldwork material. The short, condensed and effective course will

working understanding of digital cameras, sound recording, and filming on
Feedback from former participants:

should take*” – Dr. Mattia Fumanti, Department of Social Anthropology,
