This video was taken at Folly Farm in Somerset on a wildlife filming weekend for beginners.
The course covered a number of aspects of wildlife filming and gave us the opportunity to work hands on with a number of well respected wildlife filmmakers. We were split off into groups of 3 and this is what our group achieved in two hours of filming.
It was a real inspiration and an enjoyable weekend set in a truly fantastic reserve, which captures the essence of an old English woodland. We covered many aspects of wildlife filming including techniques on story telling, camera work, editing, and ethics. Apart from the learning, it was a great to be with so many like minded people and escaping from the day to day!
