Program Overview

In this workshop, the Old Trouts will share their techniques and experiences gained from working in a collaborative consensus-based ensemble, and participants will apply these strategies throughout.

What does the program offer?

This workshop explores the creation and performance modalities connected to the work of the Old Trout Puppet Workshop, as well as additional, abstract approaches to the art of puppet and mask-orientated performance through collaborative consensus-based ensemble practice.

Participants will build, create, and collectively explore new facets of their work with the focus on discovery, rather than definite results. Participants will also work through exercises based in physical theatre theory and mask work, among others. These exercises will support the foundation of original theatrical puppet performances. 

Participants will create individual puppets, engage in small ensembles, and collaboratively create short experimental projects for public presentation. Please see the itinerary section below for more information on the intensive’s themes and activities.

Who should apply?

The workshop is open to puppeteers, actors, dancers, directors, designers, teachers, visual artists, writers, and anyone with a willing spirit.

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.
