We request that all participants of a Taith-funded mobility or project document their experience by recording photographic and video footage, which is then provided to Taith to utilise for marketing and communications purposes.
Whilst not a mandatory requirement, showcasing and reporting on the impact of your Taith-funded activity is a hugely important aspect of the programme and your assistance in gathering this content is very much appreciated by the Taith team.
Your photographs and/or videos will be used to tell a story of your Taith-funded experience on our website and via our social media channels. Some images may be used for promotional materials such as flyers, brochures or pop-up banners.
This guidance includes some suggested ideas to keep in mind when you are documenting your trip:
All images/video provided must be subject to appropriate consent being granted by an individual or group of individuals. All schools and the majority of learning organisations will have their own permission/consent procedures in place which you will adhere to when sharing content to your own social media channels. Taith will provide consent forms when requested/required.
Capture the educational impact:
Whilst going out and experiencing a new country/culture (which can include food, drink, fun activities etc.) is great to see and an important aspect of your mobility/project, it is essential that you convey the learning aspect of your experience, with examples including:
Individual people stories can be very impactful. If it is somebody’s first ever time travelling abroad/getting on an aeroplane, capturing that experience in a vlog (video log) – which could consist of a short daily video diary of the trip for example – is an effective way of telling your story and conveying your message.
As these are candid, personal video clips and not a highly-polished, professionally produced marketing film, we would expect the tone and language of any vlogs to be friendly and informal; the more natural and authentic the better.
We are not expecting expert images or highly polished videos. Taking snaps/ selfies/ video clips on your phone as you would when capturing any experience is fine and adds to the authenticity of the story being told.
When taking group shots, try to take multiples as there will always be someone with their eyes closed/looking the wrong way. Multiple options mean more chance of providing us with a nice shot where everybody is looking at the camera.
When it comes to photographs, we welcome a range of snaps which fully capture your experience. Some examples include:
A few quick pointers for filming
