As part of our ongoing Kickstarter campaign, we are offering a couple of #microadventure filmmaking weekends. Tom and I will take group out for an overnight camp, and run everyone through the basics of adventure filmmaking - how to find your story, shoot in scenes, develop characters, advice and technical know-how, and so on. The idea is to equip you to set off and shoot your own adventure film, using whatever equipment you have available. Tom and I will also edit together a film of the weekend for you to take away afterwards.
Each group will consist of a maximum of 10 people, and there are three available sessions. We currently have 5 definite microadventurers for the first group. The cost is £49 per person. You'll need your own sleeping bag/bivvy bag (although if you're stuck we can probably find one for you to borrow!) You'll also need to pay for a return train ticket from London to the countryide (£10-15), and a small contribution towards the food that we'll cook over a fire that night (£5-ish, unless you want extra grog...)
For a weekend of intensive filmmaking practice, I hope you'll agree that it's quite a reasonable price! (If you want to go as a private group, whether there are 10 of you or less, you can choose the readymade reward here on Kickstarter for £490.)
The events will happen on weekends between now and the end of May. We'll try our best to find something that works for everyone (we will spend one night out in the wild, and it can be either the Friday or Saturday, for example.) The three options are:
As long as you are free on at least one of those dates then congratulations, you're eligible!
Close to London (unless we have a group that requests otherwise.) We'll head off on the train for some easily-accessible countryside. Train tickets will be an additional cost (but will also be pretty cheap.)
The deadline for signing up is Monday 6th April, so there's not much time! If you are keen, please register interest in the comments section below, or go ahead and select the £49 reward on Kickstarter here.
Remember - as long as you are free on at least one of the weekends listed above, we guarantee you'll be able to come along (we'll probably end up running a workshop on each of those three weekends anyway.) Once you've pledged via Kickstarter, just send us a message there (or here) to give us your preferred date.
