Greetings from the Kingdom Chronicler!
50th Year Storycorp Interviews, Interviewers & Volunteers sought!
The Chroniclers of each Kingdom have been directed to seek out the origins of our great Peoples and do short interviews for the record. I could really use a few volunteers from each Region to help me with this project.
Attached below are instructions on how to record and submit an interview. You can use any device from a smart phone to a professional camera. The video files (and release forms) will get uploaded to a DropBox folder, edited and finally played in the History Hall during 50 Year in June.
Each story or interview should last from 3 to 5 minutes. It’s a brief story, not a lengthy bardic recitation. Some ideas of what we’re looking for in a story:
- how you got started in the SCA
- an inspiring moment in your SCA life
- how you got started with a particular art or science
- a story from the early years of your Kingdom
and so on.
Have a look at the instructions, and feel free to email the staff at storycorp [at] sca50year.org with any questions. You can also contact me directly.
The video interviews are short 3-5 minutes recommended, there are easy to fill out forms to complete the release and sample questions to use, but I need a list of folks who would like their story told and helpers to video interview people who won’t volunteer without asking them!
If you are one of those people who may be interested and are going to a Kingdom event or would like to do your own interview,contact me at chronicler [at] antir.sca.org for more information. I will be posting the forms for release and How-to info here.
