2009-06-29 Release forms, and other multimedia stuff

Release forms for multimedia subproject - video

Today, during school, I made the template for release forms that is attached to this registry post. I have since received one signature, from Andrew (Moby) C, 10L. I will be filming tomorrow, and will bring several copies of the release form with me. These will be used for system documentation, to prove that I have not filmed anyone against their will.

Gerald did not want to sign the release form as it appears similar to a legally-binding contract, so I will check with Mr. Woo to see if I can film him regardless (with verbal consent, or with the previous agreement to publication that every JRAHS student signs).

EDIT: I have edited the release form to be less intimidating; it is attached as release-v2.doc

Multimedia subproject - audio

Tomorrow, I will be looking for senior students who are willing to be interviewed about maths (interviews to be recorded by audio players) - how many units they did, what advice they have for junior students who don't particuarly like maths, and similar topics. Alternatively, I may choose to find a member of the maths staff who is enthusiastic about the enrichment program and explain what it Maths enrichment is all about. I will be seeking to borrow an 'MP3 player' (strictly speaking, I am not using it to manage MPEG-3 files, and I am not using it for playback, so this naming is inaccurate) from Mr. Woo.

This will probably not require a release form, as audio recorded with verbal permission should generally be ready for release immediately without any signed documents (I witnessed this heuristic being applied personally by Mr. Woo when he was recording discussions using his sound recording device); however, once again, I will check with Mr. Woo.

Multimedia subproject - images

Tomorrow, I will be photographing the Cameron block and its facilities and decorations. I will be doing this with my tripod and digital camera.

Multimedia subproject - numbers

I am extremely thankful that I kept a copy of the 2008 Annual School report. This has great statistics in it, particularly for competitions and assessments. I will be asking Mr. Woo whether I am allowed to use data from this source.
