I'm looking for two types of information about instructional
films, in preparation for an interview next week:
What was the best instructional/training film you've
ever seen? What made it the best?
from film-makers and writers:
If you've ever worked on/made instructional films for
industry, what was your biggest problem?
I may soon be working on a series of instructional films
for a multi-cultural audience; this is a new area for me, and
I'm starting to do research (looking at archives, reading up on
communication) ... and am looking for advice on pitfalls to
avoid and successes to study. Any advice along these lines
would be most welcome.
