arrangements for these productions will be designed in order to
provide sufficient basis for comparability between the fieldwork
sites. Each production group will include five or six young people,
and will be supplied with the same technical equipment: S-VHS-camera,
sound-recording, and digital image-mixing. All video-workshops will
take the equivalent of four days. The videotapes themselves should
not exceed three minutes in length. The young people will work to
common theme, which is close to the cultural needs of the age-group
and which can be visualised without a high level of technical expertise.
The goal will be to express the theme through images, music, body-language,
and - as far as possible - without verbal language. At the beginning
of the video workshops, the workshop leader will present only a
small set of a basic video aesthetics in a playful way.
