Members of the library’s Comic Arts Committee are at San Diego Comic Fest today through Sunday, video recording more oral histories of the early Comic-Con organizers and participants for the library’s oral history project, “Comic-Con Kids: Finding and Defining Fandom.” Yesterday was set up day at the Town & Country Resort and Convention Center. Below are some photos of a few of our staff, faculty, students, and volunteers setting up the lights, sound, and camera equipment in the interview room.

One of the cool things about this project is that SDSU students are receiving real-world experience working with film/video production professionals.

How do you know your lighting arrangement and camera angle are going to work? You get a patient soul to sit in for the interviewee while you test and make adjustments!

Many thanks to the California Council for the Humanities for the grant that’s making this exciting project possible!
