A friend emailed me some questions about a digital oral history project she’s wanting to start at her church, and I’m posting my response to her below in case this is of interest to others. Someone else recommended she use a video camcorder with an external lapel microphone for the project. My advice is to take a “lighter” approach. Here’s what I recommended and sent to her:
- Less equipment required
- People tend to be less intimidated when a camera is not pointed at them
- Post-production and publishing can be much faster/streamlined
