AFA …. ADVENTURE FILM ACADEMY 2012
Part of the Kendal Mountain Festival
Do you want to make a film?
If you are UK based then join an action packed week of courses and workshops and learn how to film or improve upon your filmmaking skills.
New for 2012 is a significant change of emphasis in the course direction. Over the last few years there has been a move in adventure sports filming to what people are calling Guerrilla Style Filming. This is typified by a fast moving, lightweight and small team approach ideally suited to adventure sports filming. Typically the films are uploaded to Vimeo or You Tube, and are short and non-commercial.
AFA explores this new filming style and aims to expand creative boundaries. Advances in technology and reduction in costs have made filmmaking within reach of everyone and democratised the process. The modular AFA course will use a wide variety of kit from mobile phones, compact cameras, high quality DSLR’s and GoPro’s. Additionally the course will explain how to use the latest sound recording devices and editing software, together with ‘toys’ such as lightweight cranes and track that will enable you to make professional quality movies suitable to post on-line or enter into a festival such as KMF.
Lecturers and mentors include some of UK’s top adventure film makers including Brian Hall, Keith Partridge, Paul Diffley, Dominic Bush, Matt Burke and Dan Hodge. All equipment is included.
