The mindful camera: Common sense for documentary videography

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

The use of cameras for content capture during documentary construction is discussed. It is stated that documentary filmmakers can use common sense knowledge and reasoning to represent and organise video content to support story construction. It is suggested that if a camera has some common sense about the world, stories and filmmaking practice, it can become a knowledgeable filmmaking partner. Awareness of the content landscape can benefit both the filmmaker and the camera during the shooting/production process,which serve to close gaps in content, resulting in higher success in editing story sequences.
