Learn To Make Adventure Films In July
This year's Kendal Adventure Film Academy takes place over a week in July.
The Kendal Adventure Film Academy has spun off from its original slot at the Kendal Mountain Festival in November and will now run over a week in late July giving budding outdoor filmmakers the opportunity to learn the skills needed to make adventure and extreme films.
The 2010 AFA course will focus on camerawork, sound recording and editing in outdoor and adventureous film situations and incudes the opportunity to tale part in the well established 48-hour Film Marathon, a challenge to make a two-minute film which will be entered into special prize category at Kendal's film competition in November.
The AFA is run by leading adventure film professionals who have worked on major projects including Touching The Void and BBC television productions. It's an ideal opportunity to learn some of the skills you need to make your own films and many previous particpants have forged a career in the adventure film industry.
And because of the emergence of affordable modern, lightweight digital media and equipment, means – says the AFA – that 'the potential to become an adventure film maker has never been greater.
You can pick or choose from individual modules during the week or sign up for the whole shebang, pricing depends on which options you choose, but the whole week costs just £250 making it extremely good value.
The academy will run from 21-25 July, 2010 with deadlines for applications being 16 July. To find out more and download an application form visit the web site at www.mountainfest.co.uk.
