The same crew did some footage of Aisha preparing a feast and providing 
recepies (and a camera shy me bringing out bread dough and other 
ingredients) I like the idea of an instructional video, its a great way 
for those out there in the less populated areas of the known world that 
can't make it to many local events (especially for those who have a 3 
hour+ drive to their "local" events)  

I'm usually adamant about where/when/why I'm photographed, but I honestly 
feel that if any video is going to be shot of our activities, that it be 
done as Aisha's and 12th Night were.  with at least 2 active members on 
the camera crew, I'm certain that most of the footage is clear, to the 
point, informative, and puts us in the best possible light.  

As for those who don't like this passive form of learning about the SCA 
and its activities, how else are you going to get someone, especially 
someone who has never been to an event, or even heard of the SCA 
interested? Word of mouth and printed literature are good, but there are 
a lot of people out there who have a "Show-me-how-much-fun-it-is" 
attitude.  Not everyone goes to the demos or happens to see practices.  
This is why I actually like the work the above mentioned crew is doing.
