Whatever you do, don’t miss festival curator, Austin Vince‘s workshop ‘How to Make a Film of your Adventure’
Any fool can strap a Go-Pro to their crash helmet but brother, that ain’t no documentary! In his role as Film Festival Curator, Austin Vince has watched more Adventure Travel films than any other human in the Free West.
Put simply, he knows the ‘code’ and Lord have mercy, he’s gonna tell it you. Sometimes known as ‘The Da Vincey Code’ this 90 min presentation has inspired and informed amateur film-makers around the world and catapulted them to the big league.
Austin knows that any cogent human, with humble gear sourced from the high street, can make a broadcast quality documentary. All you need is his top ten tips (actually there’s about thirty seven) and you are rollin’ gold!
Disclaimer: People who are clinically unimaginative may find making a documentary beyond their skill set even AFTER attending this class.
And if you’re more of a chef than a film-maker, you can join in Adventure Pro‘s cooking competition, ‘My Camp Stove Rules!’
