A week-long intensive on Bodmin Moor, Cornwall, UK
Semptember 16 - September 23, 2017
Of all the places humans live on earth, a handful stand out as places of enduring fascination and special significance. Bodmin Moor is one of these.
Spend a week as a filmmaker coming to understand and film this transcendent landscape and its neolithic stone circles as the year comes to the autumnal equinox. We will be using non-toxic processes, processing our film in the open air, and investigating unconventional ways to capture images so that they reflect both the nature of the place and of ourselves as embodied beings in it. Delicious vegan food is provided for all meals, and we will be camping at the moor's edge. Black and White film, several cameras, chemistry, and processing equipment will be provided. This will be a true immersion, a week with no other concern but how filmmaking can relate to an extraordinary site.
Camping is at the Cheesewring Farm
, a beautiful spot adjacent to the moor and near the Hurlers, a group of three neolithic stone cicles.
The week's meals follow the Handmade Film Institute's dedication to delicious, plant-based cuisine. Directed by our amazing chef, Cynthia Sliker, preparing and eating meals will be an integral part of the experience!
£420 for the 8 day retreat, which includes film, film equipment and chemistry,
classes, class materials, camping, food.
You may pay in full, or start by paying a deposit. A deposit of £210 will hold your place in the camp. The balance of £210 is due
by August 27.
