This presentation was given in May 2013 by Management Sciences for Health staff members Laura Lartigue, Jeremy Malhotra, Amber Pitts, and Willow Gerber to MSH staff on both the SIAPS and LMG projects. During the presentation, the presenters gave basic photography and videography tips, and worked with MSH staff to demonstrate use of a Flipcam to produce a couple of very short, simple videos, which was great fun. :)
