Digital Storytelling - Alice Mercer, Wes Fryer
Wes begins with an example of Celebrate Oklahoma Voices. Some people used to record their voice stories. You can give a person the list of questions and they can call gabcast with your code and record their voice directly. Equipment: digital recorders, Flip cameras, ning. Even if your video quality is not too good, tape anyway so you can preserve the audio, including questions asked.
PBS has a documentary film guide.
Ken Burns has a DVD guide about documentary film making.
