Creating or Finding Media

Video projects involve the organization of visual and auditory media into a narrative structure.

Some video projects require that you create your own video and sound elements. For a guide on recording video and sound, visit the recording page.

Other video projects involve finding video online or in archives and editing those elements together into a new project. For information about finding and download video and sound for those projects, visit the finding media page.

Some projects will require you to both record your own video and integrate found footage, in which case you should visit both pages.
