Memphis. Jack of all trades.
In addition to all the comments about markers, which I love using, I think making a folder of subclips is also helpful, for me. For example, right now I am shooting and editing a piece on public works here in Memphis, TN. I am at a lot of community and public official board meetings, shooting for hours at a time. When reviewing the footage I like to make subclips and name them after the person who is the subject of that particular shot with a one to two word description of what has been said or done as well as a numbering system, in case the same topic is brought up ("sammie bus routes 01," for example.) I place them into the folder I have named based on the location and date of where and when I was shooting ("Riverview Community Center 092015," as a folder name). I find it helpful for when I want to find a specific person and moment. I can search and then edit the clip into my sequence easily. But good organization is different for each individual, so I appreciate the additional perspective of this tutorial and all the comments below.
I enjoyed your insight. I read Nichols' Intro to Documentary book in my college documentary form class, and, I agree, it left a lot to be desired. It did serve as a good introduction to think about concepts more in depth, and challenge his straightforward approach. I need to find a way to get my hands on the other book you recommended, Looking Two Ways. It sounds like a good read.
