Video Creation Resources

When creating videos for this project, you may not have access to conventional tools for recording video. For example, you may not have easy access to a camcorder, tripod, or video editing software. The good news is that you don't need an expensive camera, store bought tripod, or complicated video editing software to create a quality video. You can create video with tools that you already have.

The documentation in the link below will assist you with video recording tips, creating DIY tripods/stands, and selecting/downloading video editing software.
