Announcing a Story Telling Through Moving Pictures workshop on the lovely seaside of Greece and a new site.

Dear Friends i am so excited to announce a new filming workshop. Last year was such a success working along side filmmaker Ryan Marshall that we could not wait to do it again!  We have created a new site, where you can see the workshops, instructors and films created in our last workshop by the wonderful attendees.

so please visit the site here

Here is the Greece workshop- it is going to be magical!

The village of Sparto is perched high above the Ambracian Gulf, to reach the Villa Amalia you descend a winding country road through olive groves. At the end of the road is a high stone wall with a large iron gate flanked by two immense stone urns containing pomegranate trees. Pass through the gates and you enter a landscape that has not changed in centuries.

The road down to the house is lined with oleanders and lavender which form a border around the olive groves. From the gravel parking area next to the house you get your first glimpse of the sea. The walkway to the house is covered with an arbour of lemon trees which opens to a courtyard planted in lavender with a fountain in the centre which emerges from an old terra cotta amphora.

You already know how to take beautiful photographs. Filmmakers Ryan Marshall, Micheal Martinez and Joshua Mcwilliams will help you  learn how to tell a story with video in this intensive workshop. 
Geared toward professional photographers who have a solid understanding of their DSLR cameras when it comes to still photography but have yet to make the leap into video, this workshop will provide balanced knowledge of the basics of videography using DSLR camera. 
The course will cover everything from pre to post production, with particular focus on understanding how to customize your camera to best achieve your personal shooting style. Instructors will be on hand to give each attendee one-on-one guidance.
Create 3 collaborative films from top to bottom - location planning, production and editing. We will start each day by making a film and end each day with a comprehensive live edit session. Attendees will walk away with a firm grasp on post production organization and execution, from preparing your files for edit, to the final export for online viewing.

In this workshop we will take you to a place with rolling hills filled with Olive groves, the sea far as the eye can see, small fishing villages and local craftsmen. Enjoy farm-to-table meals prepared by a talented chef using local sources ingredients, included fish caught for us that day and beautiful breads made in the house's outdoor wood fired oven while sitting under beautiful terraces. Of course there is swimming either from infinity pool or right in the ocean or perhaps a soak in the stone spa and a massage.
