A checklist for ethical film-making with communities:

  • Open the process for selecting who and why could benefit the most from a VR film.
  • Be ready to build an honest and caring relationship with the people you want to create the film with.
  • Spend enough time - or partner with someone who has been - building trust and local understanding of the community you’re engaging with.
  • Ensure all your participants relate to the medium (VR) before anything.
  • Prime individual and collective dignity over camera angles or storylines.
  • Decentralize cinematographic decisions to collectively design the experience.
  • Share know-how on using the film-making equipment so local communities can actively participate in production.
  • In production, plan carefully and leave room for serendipity. It’s part of listening.
  • De-colonize narratives by engaging with local artistic expressions, languages and landscape’s sounds of the communities sharing their story.
  • Pay attention to the stories often concealed by intersections of age, gender, and social status.
  • Take care of the viewer. Be up front about the purpose of inviting someone into the virtual reality experience.
  • Define ownership rights for each actor involved and sign on them.
  • Include translators in the process of obtaining image-waivers and negotiating the copyright structure.
  • Thoughtfully think how any potential dividends reflect the ethics of your film.
  • Prioritize congruence over funding. Ask the story-tellers who should be involved and under what conditions.
  • Spend enough time and care in crediting each participant.
  • Collectively agree on the “terms and conditions” to present and reproduce the film.  
  • The launching and distribution strategy must be co-created with all actors involved in the film.
  • Learn and adopt the community's ways of socializing, respecting the times and places for it.
  • Establish a code for communication by using interpreters to share in their own language, and harnessing non-verbal communication.
  • Learn which care practices are relevant for the community and make them always present during your time on location. Advocate for mutual care.
  • Measure your questions. It is exhausting for communities to explain and guide you through the story you want to find, or understand.
  • Reflect on your positionality all the time: What power do I have in this situation? How am I using -or shifting- that power?
  • Be ready and open for conflict, it is part of building collectively.
  • Find partners who are aligned with the values and principles of the project.
  • De-link stories from money-making dynamics.
  • There should be ethical dilemmas: it’s a good indicator of shaking power structures.
