Video it

Investing in some video equipment and exploring methods and techniques for using the medium would be beneficial for OA in several ways and I’m not just saying that because I like the idea of making some arty films about architecture and the historic built environment but in terms of building recording video would be ideal for showing how a building worked- how people moved and used or still use the space and give an integrated unified feeling of a structure or complex of structures rather than dividing it up into separate views/frames /elevations/sections as traditional recording tends to do.
There are numerous other possible applications, video diaries of sites and various projects/personnel  on the website for example, interviews, training films, introductions to OA for new staff, publicity for potential clients, educational videos for schools/public presentations etc.
Video is universal and accessible, it is understood by everyone and in a company of this size and with our range of work and projects in an ‘industry’ that has become hugely popular we could be using this medium to reach out via the web and in other ways to a vast potential audience.

re: this blog

This is not a videodiary because we don't have a video camera, which is partly the point, but it could be if we did!
