https://worldof.co/online-residency/#video-editing-workshop
Participation Fee: 30 EUR for the 3 sessions

Via structured sessions with examples and discussion this course will help you to communicate your ideas appropriately not only in video, but in general. You’ll get a sense of what are the basic rules and how you can experiment with them, or even break them.

Part 1: The Basics of Storytelling - lecture with discussion
23rd July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
Sometimes an ambitious visual vision for your project isn’t enough. So how do you communicate this vision to your viewers? Discussing the very essential and crucial moments in storytelling as well as the basic techniques used in films.

Part 2: The Language of Cinema
24th July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
Films and video art happen to be universal. Everyone around the globe should be able to understand the story you want to tell them. This is why we need to learn how to speak the Language of Cinema, so that one day we’ll write poems in it. As a language that consists of visuals, we’ll touch upon its different components such as cinematography, editing, sound and music,etc. How are these components helping us communicate the story better?

Part 3: Expanded cinema
25th July | 16:00 UTC
Duration: 1 Hour
After we’ve created a sense for traditional films, it’s time to take a look into the experimental ones. When we know all the basic rules of how films work, then we’re ready to break or even bend those rules. How a need for experimentation with films changed the face of cinema? Who are the people that were at the core of the modern video art and experimental films?

Description: 

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 07/04/2021 - 11/04/2021
    
Mountain filmmaking has exploded in the last decade - not just in popularity, but also in style, focus and scope. The well-told story of human vs. nature on the hostile mountain, with human returning enlightened, has been replaced by more nuanced conversations about human interaction with mountains; documentaries on environmental issues, social and humanitarian causes, poetic studies of landscape and more.

This workshop will combine the epic backdrop of the Haute Pyrenees mountains with the expertise of one of the most acclaimed directors of mountain documentary film working today, Jennifer Peedom. We will work through every aspect of documentary filmmaking, from story to sound to camera, towards the production of a short piece of documentary footage. Working out in the epic landscape as well as here at our excellent facilities, we will explore the mountains, delve into the histories and lore of the region and its people, and absorb the stories and visual beauty of this extraordinary place.

Over five full days, we will cover:

  • The importance of story structure - character, conflict, stakes. Using diverse examples from Jan's cinematic output, we will work through a wide variety of  different styles of storytelling
  • The Art of Interview - we will explore the technical side of interview, before going out into the field and gathering spoken histories. For those not interested in interview, we will explore incorporation of poetry or other spoken text into documentary work.
  • Shooting the film - starting with basic technical discussion and description of techniques, we will progress to exploring and shooting the location.
  • Sound & music - we will explore the basics of sound and music, and how they enhance drama and image. This will include practical field recording sessions out in the landscape.
  • Editing - we will be joined by Christian Gazal, who edited Sherpa and Mountain, for a day of focused tuition on putting it all together.

Jennifer Peedom is a BAFTA nominated Australian filmmaker, known for her intimate and compassionate portraits documenting stories from the epic to the everyday, often in extreme situations. An experienced climber, Jen has worked as a high altitude director on several expeditions including Discovery Channel's six-part series "Everest - Beyond the Limit", and her credits include the internationally renowned documentaries "Miracle on Everest" and "Solo", the story of Andrew McAuley's attempted solo kayak crossing from Tasmania to New Zealand.

Jen has developed a strong friendship with Sherpa people over almost two decades of working in the Himalayas - connections which were key in the production of her 2015 film "Sherpa". Centred around Phurba Tashi, a Sherpa who has made 21 Everest ascents, the film explores Sherpa culture and their spiritual relationship with the mountain, as well as the heavy work and risks Sherpas take in making multiple ascents to take equipment and supplies up the mountain and make the climb possible for foreign climbers (the film tragically witnesses the 2014 Everest avalanche). "Sherpa" won the 2015 Grierson Award for Best Documentary at the BFI London Film Festival, premiered internationally at the Telluride Film Festival, screened at Toronto Film Festival and received a BAFTA nomination in 2016 for Best Documentary.

In 2017 Jen directed "Mountain", a collaboration the Australian Chamber Orchestra with script by Robert Macfarlane, narrated by Willem Dafoe. "Mountain" explores high peaks around the world, revealing the relationship between humans and mountains across time. It screened theatrically in 27 countries and went on to become the highest grossing (non-IMAX) Australian documentary of all time, also winning 3 AACTA (Australian Academy Awards) in 2018.

Description: 

Overview

The Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is an exceptional chance for independent and emerging filmmakers to advance their skills under the guidance of two of the world’s premier and proven adventure filmmakers. During a jam-packed 10 days in the fall, participants will hone their craft, strengthen their skills, and network and mingle with fellow filmmakers, industry insiders, and decision-makers. 

This all takes place within the core of the Banff Centre Mountain Film and Book Festival, where epic stories are told through the eyes of adventurers, authors, photographers, and filmmakers from around the globe. Filmmakers will have access to Festival screenings and industry events — motivation galore!

What does the program offer?

Workshop sessions will help participants sharpen their narrative, vision, organize their workflow, develop audio and editing techniques, and perfect their pitches. Our faculty promote an open, interactive, and creative atmosphere. 

We pack the days with hands-on practice, lively discussion, and brainstorming; evenings include film screenings, guest speakers, and social events. We’ll welcome industry insiders as guest speakers, offering rare access to potential mentors, collaborators, sponsors, and backers. The workshop includes on-campus lodging and meals — all that participants have to do is focus on their craft and soak up the inspiration.

Who should apply?

This workshop was designed for filmmakers. To get the most from the program, applicants should have a strong desire to take the next step in all aspects of their filmmaking, including pre-production, pitching, location skills, the handling of the edit, and distribution. Past participants have included elite athletes transitioning to filmmaking, expeditionists wanting to expand to different media platforms, and established filmmakers wanting to break into the adventure genre. 

This program is not aimed at those who only want to explore what it is like to be an adventure filmmaker – the Adventure Filmmakers Workshop is for those who arecommitted to filmmaking as a life choice.

A strong knowledge base of technical sound, camera, and editing skills is essential. Applicants are encouraged to focus on one specific film project that they have in mind and to be prepared to share it with the group. Participants should be in good physical condition with the ability to lift and carry heavy camera equipment outdoors without assistance on uneven terrain.

Enrolment is limited to 24 participants.
