Share your passion for taking and editing videos. Record a quality video to showcase Brownwood’s amazing Genealogy and Local History Library. This is one of the best genealogy libraries in the area, but many people don’t know about it. We need a video so people will realize all of the great resources available here and come visit. This is a one-time project, but may require a team to pull off.
* Conduct or manage the production of videos related to the Genealogy Library
* Ensure that the proper model releases are obtained
* Work with library staff and members of Pecan Valley Genealogical Society to determine what areas of the Genealogy Library are significant, what should be filmed, etc. What interests would be most likely to drive genealogists both locally and across the state to the Genealogy Library?
* Personal satisfaction by helping to connect the library and its community
* Making new friends and interesting acquaintances
* Opportunities to share your skills and to express your creativity
* Additions to your professional portfolio
* Recent experience in videotaping and video editing
* High degree of initiative and artistic creativity
* Ability to organize projects and meet deadlines
* Excellent oral communication and written skills
* Ability to work with others
* Interest in genealogy/local history preferred
* You must have your own camera and video-editing equipment. (The library is unable to supply this.)
