SCA 50 Year Storycorps

SCA-50-Year-logo-1up-300x201Greetings, all!

As a part of the SCA 50 Year Celebration, the History Display section is sponsoring a Story Corps project to record interviews on people’s experiences in the SCA. The idea is to preserve our collective history in a storytelling format. Our staff of three can’t possibly canvass the Known World recording interviews, so we need your help.

Attached to this post are instructions on how to record and submit an interview. You can use any device from a smart phone to a professional camera. The video files and release forms will get uploaded to a DropBox folder, edited and finally played in the History Hall during 50 Year in June.

Each story or interview should last from 3 to 5 minutes. It’s a brief story, not a lengthy bardic recitation. Some ideas of what we’re looking for in a story:

  • How you got started in the SCA
  • A particularly inspiring moment
  • How you got started with a particular art or science

and so on.

Have a look at the Story Corps Instructions (PDF file). You can also contact me at (yes, there’s only 1 “S” in “storycorp” in the email addy).

Please cross post this message and files as many groups as possible. Thanks in advance for your help!
