DETAILS

This is an exclusive video expedition, for basic – intermediate videographers looking to build their portfolio. Our group size will be limited to 20 people, so that we can work closely with each of you on your individual skill level. We will be sharing our creative process, and what we have learned in video production over the past 8 years. It’s going to be jam packed with information, and so much fun! Each morning we will meet as a group for a workshop, and in the afternoon we’ll head out on an expedition to apply the skills we learned. As we break into small groups to film at these beautiful locations, everyone will have the opportunity to try out new equipment, be in front of the camera as well as behind, and have one-on-one time to ask specific questions. Each participant will leave with a commercial at the conclusion of the video expedition to add to their portfolio. We would ask that you come readily prepared with questions, so that you can get the most out of this opportunity! We are so excited to meet and film with you in BANFF!
