    • Complement the project, footage and advocacy campaign, while adding information and context.
    • Decide before filming whether or not to use narration. Can the community’s story be told through interviews?
    • What will the individual’s voice and perceived identity imply about the issue, your project and the communities involved?

  • 6. How do I use narration?
    • Do not just describe what is being shown – add to it.
    • Choose the narrator carefully. Is it a man or woman? Local or foreigner? How does the person’s accent or manner of speaking affect the video?
    • Use short words and sentences and avoid acronyms.
    • Write the narration clearly and remove any unnecessary adjectives.
