The film-making workshops were a big hit at the 2012 festival and we’ll be running similar ones again in 2013, taught by industry professionals as before.
Please note, the price of the workshops is not included in the festival entry fee. They are £20 each and payable on the day. But there will be two general workshops that are free to attend:
How To Film Your Adventure (free to attend)
Curator Austin Vince’s legendary doc-making overview. Always a hit from Australia to Arizona, school teacher Austin fuses excellent instruction with twenty years of film-making experience. A superb warm-up for the more specialist clinics and scientific proof that anyone can make a viable documentary when following Austin’s simple template.
Blogging On The Road (free to attend)
New this year, Louise Wilson (see guest speakers) gets us jazzed on how best to harness the plethora of new technologies open to the modern long distance traveller. Text, pictures, film clips, charging on the road and uploads, she’s got it covered!
