Sustainable Heritage Network Video Work

From Fall 2015 – Spring 2019 I had the pleasure of producing about 200 tutorial and informational videos for the Sustainable Heritage Network.

The Sustainable Heritage Network (SHN) is an answer to the pressing need for comprehensive workshops, online tutorials, and web resources dedicated to the lifecycle of digital stewardship. The SHN is a collaborative project that complements the work of indigenous peoples globally to preserve, share, and manage cultural heritage and knowledge.

Each fall I lead a team of four videographers to the Association of Tribal Archives Libraries and Museum‘s annual conference. In 2015 we travelled to Washington D.C., in 2016 we were in Arizona, in 2017 we were in New Mexico, and in Fall 2018 we were outside Minneapolis. We would shoot up to 80 different videos during a condensed timeline ranging from 4 to 8 days. Then we would spend the rest of the school year working on editing the videos for the SHN.

The team I lead was largely comprised of students from the Digital Technology and Culture program (where I serve as Assistant Director).

I am incredibly proud of the work that my students and I accomplished over the four production cycles.
