EGS3021: Sustainability and the EnvironmentPractical: Vulnerability video consent form for student videos
A consent form for video subjects to complete before students film so that confidentiality and personal preferences are noted. As part of vulnerability video student assignment.
Guidelines for the project:
Decide on a research question to frame your group’s vulnerability assessment that you will
undertake during your visits. The question should be about a certain person/individual and
how they reduced their vulnerability to the drought. Although you might focus on their
sensitivity, the intention is to capture how people adapted to the drought. Two vulnerability
assessment tools should be used with the individual/group you visit to form the basis of your
video documentation. The implementation of the tools can be supported by other video
material (text, photos, stories, music).
During the prac you will get into a group of 4 people, preferably those you don’t know. The
reason for this is to encourage you to work with those you don’t know, as often different
perspectives can strengthen insight into vulnerability as well as concepts for the video.
During the prac you will pilot the 2 methods you have chosen with your group. Refining the
methods will depend on who you are able to visit and film. In your group, plan your process
and the steps that will be needed to produce a video. Everyone has different strengths to bring.
Discuss who you think will undertake different roles (planning the visit, interviewing/running
tools, translating, filming, editing, selecting music etc).
At the end of the session one member must make a presentation to the class, on flipchart paper,
of the intended focus of the vulnerability assessment, 2 methods chosen and filming plan.
