What is Trades Alive?
Calling all trades specialists, videographers, and everyone interested in keeping traditional trades skills alive!
Trades Alive is an effort to generate a community approach to creating historic preservation trades tutorial videos. Historic preservation experts across the National Park Service can submit high-quality videos of techniques and technologies to share their knowledge and skills with others in our video series.
Check the videos currently in the Trades Alive series.
How do I get involved?
“I already have a video.”
Awesome! Email us and we’ll get it up on the site.
“I can create a video on my camera.”
Perfect! You can shoot a trades video on your own camera or smart phone. Feel free to check out our tips and tricks on shooting a video for Trades Alive. If you need help editing your video, send us an email.
“I want to create a video but I don’t have a camera.”
No problem! We have a few video kits we can loan out to parks or programs for a pay period or two so you can record your video. Learn more here.
