This chapter provides researchers with a resource guide to making and managing video recordings of sign language data and to undertaking linguistic annotation with available software. Instead of focusing on technical details, the chapter focuses on how to obtain video data that are good and usable in terms of quality of the recording and appropriate in terms of answering specific research questions. With respect to annotation, the chapter provides guidelines on devising a coding scheme for specific research questions and on setting up a workflow in order to implement the coding scheme in the anno- tation software for successful and effective use. The chapter is aimed at researchers with a background in linguistics interested in working with sign language video data.
