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.

Vita Institute for the Arts Presents The Character of Place: A Hands-On Professional Development Program May 20-June 19, 2020 Florence, Italy

Description: 

The Character of Place
Spending some time in a new or foreign setting rejuvenates the senses and promotes an enhanced or heightened understanding of our work in the arts. Join us May 20- June 19, 2020 in Florence, Italy for an intensive 4 week professional development program for working artists with experience in any or all of the three areas of theatre, two-dimensional (drawing and/or painting) and three-dimensional art (jewelry and/or found object sculpture).

The Learning Experience
For practitioners working in the arts interdisciplinary studies allows them to make connections between ideas and concepts across different disciplinary boundaries. Interdisciplinary studies in the arts enabling practitioners to apply the knowledge gained in one discipline to another as a way of deepening their learning and means of personal expression.

The Character of Place: is a 4 week inter and intra disciplinary program that  addresses the questions:  “How is it that the aesthetic narrative can only happen here? What is the particular character of this place that gives it the ability to carry a specific narrative content?”
 This program will use the arts to explore how the character of place can advance an aesthetic narrative.  Participation in at least one of three focused areas will be balanced with interdisciplinary group discussions and directed activities. The discussions and activities will take place in the morning (9:00-10:00), with the focused areas  taking place in the morning (10:30-12:00), afternoon (1:00-3:00) and/or evening (times to be determined).

Registration Closing Date: January 31st, 2020.

The Focused Programs:
Theatre: Acting/Scriptwriting: Dr. Paul Edwards: The Character of Place: Theatre Through a Different Lens.

The program is intended for individuals grounded in theatre who are familiar with different approaches to acting, scriptwriting and/or performance. Actors, playwrights, designers and people from all other walks of theatre life are also welcome.

Scene work, monologues, scriptwriting and improvisation will be used to explore theatre practice in the context of character. All of our work will be centered on the sense of place and how a narrative unfolds within a given environment.

Two-Dimensional Art: Composition: Dr. Don Seastrum: The Character of Place: Space, Color, and Light.
The Character of Place: Space, Color and Light is a four-week intensive inter and intra disciplinary program designed for artists with an established artistic practice. The workshop addresses how compositional elements and principles are manipulated beyond technique, using images developed from the environments in and around Florence, Italy.

The program will encourage participating artist to investigate her or his own vision of the world while developing skills with purposeful inquiry and creative expression. The participants will produce compositional studies that employ Place as an integral aspect of the composition, rather than a secondary consideration, an environmental backdrop. Place, both figuratively and conceptually, being as much a “character” as any other image-shapes in the composition.

By investigating the interrelationship of space, color and light as applied to place, the program will go beyond pure technique into the realm of expressive concepts, ideas, philosophies or any number of content-texts derived from the individual artists own experiences.
Upon completion of the program participants will have a collection of pieces that they will be able to take back to their personal studios and use as the source for more in-depth studies and completed compositions.

A majority of the hands on application studies will be done on site in a variety of locations in and around Florence. Participants should be prepared to walk a minimum of one to two miles a day.

Three-Dimensional Art: Jennifer Wells: The Character of Place as Jewelry and/or Sculpture:

The Place as Jewelry and/or Sculpture, offers participants the opportunity to create works from items collected and gathered while interacting with our surroundings. A scrap of tin is only that, until you pick it up and offer it a moment when it can have a new life as a character from a memory in a moment from your experiences.

This program is meant to explore how we view the items that we often pass by. Working with very minimal tools and additional materials we will create pieces of wearable and non- wearable sculpture that focus on found objects. Each piece will have the potential to carry with it the story of the object; where it was found, what the creator had done that day, why they were in that location, what they were feeling, smelling, ect.. Simultaneously we will be allowing the found objects to become characters and enter into roles of intimate personal importance, as keepers of memory. Demonstrations will provide technical support and material explorations. Participants should expect to leave with a large collection of material experiments as well as several finished works.

Certificate
All participants will receive a professional development certificate upon completion of the program.
