What a beautiful day to be learning about wildlife film making at Northam Burrows!
As part of NDMI's Wild Shorts project, we ran a one day intensive wildlife film making workshop in partnership with Torridge District Council at Northam Burrows Country Park in North Devon. An enthusiastic group of aspiring wildlife film makers with a wide variety of skills came together to learn the key principles of good film making and fieldcraft.
Starting with an introduction to the history and natural environment of the Burrows from Ranger Mike Day and a walk and talk with local wildlife expert Warren Collum the group familiarised themselves with the variety of habitats and species of the area. They were then introduced to the process of creating a storyline and building a storyboard for a film before going out and getting some hands on experience of shooting video on location.
There was plenty of opportunity throughout the day for the film makers to get personalised tips from our professional film makers and the final step was a brief editing tutorial to conclude the process.
With thanks to our funders North Devon Coast AONB, Fullabrook and Tarka Country Trust who enabled us to offer this workshop at an affordable subsidised rate.
We're now looking forward to some fabulous entries to our Wild Shorts Competition from these newly skilled film makers!
Here are six top tips to help you make a great short film for our North Devon Coast AONB Wild Shorts wildlife and environment film competition.
