My life: children and videorecorders

My Life as A Child- A 6-part documentary on The Learning Channel. Make friends with the video recorder, never watch the tapes. Looks interesting, I’ll have to see if it can be recorded on my boyfriend’s TiVo (I’m TV-less).

Each one-hour episode of “My Life” has the look of a home video, switching among the stories of three or four children. The 7- to 11-year-old subjects, mostly identified only by first names in the series, made their cameras part of graduations and lying-in-bed ruminations. The young filmmakers were free to focus on whatever they wished, guided by the producers’ questions about their particular challenges and what defines them and makes them tick. The children delivered hours of tape to be edited.
