The Photonovel: A Tool for Development. Program and Training Journal Manual Series Number 4.
Designed as a working and teaching tool for development workers, this manual includes the step-by-step process for preparing a photonovel. Chapter 1 introduces the photonovel, a blend of comic book and motion picture that substitutes photographs for the stylized drawings. It lists its advantages and disadvantages as an educational medium and tool for developing nations. Chapter 2 covers such preliminaries as the message, audience, distribution, and the photonovel's three components--plot, dialogue, and visual content. Chapters 3 through 6 discuss these steps in the production of a photonovel: the shooting session, the mechanical (the paste-up on illustration board), the pretest of the photonovel, and printing. Chapter 7 offers Peace Corps volunteers suggestions on how to obtain money to finance the project. An appendix provides a glossary of terms, sample photo-posters, sample covers, a list of personnel and their required skills, and a budget. A sample photonovel concludes the manual. (YLB)
