Environmental Filming Workshop

April 1, 2015

DATE INCORRECT (sometime in April)



Class Description:
Have you ever wanted to get an important message across to millions viewers with a film? We have the tools, all we need is time, space, and collaboration to generate meaningful media that changes our world for the better. Join us for three weeks in the Caribbean jungle´s of Costa Rica as we immerse ourselves in an intensive film making experience. Working alongside professional talent from all over the world, we will create provocative social media about our environment. Whether you are a writer, actor, photographer, or social activist, your talents and interests will be vital to this collaboration. Our goal is simple; make media that tells people what they need to know about protecting our planet and then show them how to do it with fun creative storytelling.

Participants are welcome to learn all aspects of production, but we strongly encourage you to focus on one set of skills; be it camera operating, costumes, acting, sound, producing, or editing. We will decide as a group whether to produce a narrative or documentary, or both, depending on your interests.
