Group Project -- Case Study of Production History : In this assignment, groups of three or two students will collaborate to create a case study that will be instructive in the identification and selection of moving image and sound material. Each group will conduct 2 case studies that, through text and image, demonstrate the production process for a particular project or mode of production including:

Imagine the audience for the case study is moving image and archiving professionals who will utilize the information as they begin sorting and processing a collection. The case study should be concise and easy to read, but with sufficient detail for the task. Visual aids such as for key formats, special labeling, examples of documentation, database screenshots, etc., will also be helpful.

To gain the necessary knowledge, the groups must conduct an audio or video interview of one person per case study. In some cases, print and electronic resources may be available or helpful.
