How to learn about the people and situations you will be designing for, right at the start of your project? STBY use a range of visual methods to collect and create these stories. In particular the use of film during fieldwork, insight generation and communication of design research results is very powerful. Film does not necessarily need to be very time consuming and/or expensive, as long as it is well planned and 'scripted'. This workshop will include hands on exercises with simple methods to use video to learn about the people and situations you are designing for, in agile and participatory ways.

Participants should bring

A simple camera to record digital video. A phone or photo camera with video function is fine. If you have a cable to connect your phone to a computer or projector that might be good to have too.
