This article situates at the interstice of post qualitative inquiry and child participatory video research, in responding to the need for more work around child, camera and researcher relations, where bodies (human and otherwise) coexist and agency is not bounded in one human subject. The article makes its contribution by describing affective methodologies for dealing with vast amounts of digital video data whilst displacing dominant framings for knowing children. The author offers the technique of Video data sensing (Caton, 2019) to recognise how child subjectivities emerge out of the movements and rhythms of bodies, formlessness and chaos. The technique works in conjunction with digital software, as a way for researchers and practitioners to move beyond simply labelling children and their capacities in new and alternate ways, as light, pattern, colour and texture become sites of knowledge production within the child and camera assemblage (Deleuze and Guattari, 1987/2014).
