Who's this for: Photographers who want to dig deeper in learning how to create films for families. Ideally you will come to the workshop knowing the basics of how to film with your camera and how to edit a basic short film. There will be a very quick review of basics and fundamentals at the start to make sure everyone is on the same page but this retreat is targeted at expanding on existing skills and pushing yourselves creatively. I plan on including time for critiques in the workshop, so I'll have participants send through one film to be critiqued during the retreat. There will be time set aside for shooting in the field, an in depth discussion on how to approach scenes, and more.
