Richen explains the different kinds of beans that are usually grown while describing the type that has been grown in the farm, to Sudha and Bobita. The aim of the video is document how the Hrusso Aka women in the village go about their daily chores as well as to document the nature of conversation that plays out which differs depending on the context. The audio recorded through Rode NTG 2 on Marantz PMD 661 MK2 could not be used as the audio captured was not audible enough because of the distance between the microphone and the participants. As a result, the audio recorded directly on the camera through Rode VideoMicro was used instead. RECORDING CONDITION Audio:Fairly quiet village surroundings; outdoors. Audio recorded directly on Sony PJ 540 camcorder with Rode VideoMicro microphone using SC2 inputs and extracted later using Adobe Premiere Pro software. Recording Specs: Stereo, 48000 Hz, 32 bit float.
