This is a testimonial from the Pete about what you can learn at WMBVS
, This is going to be unlinke film school as the world knows it so far . Think of it as more of real life school. You are not going to sit and learn thousands of white balance temperatures off by heart . You are going to learn from by eye , in the field, having to adjust it quickly to rescue a shot that has moved form outside to in . These figures you will then know the ones useful to you and diffferent types of light . That is just one example .
We will teach you how to make videos good enough to sell, help you find your own style and save you hundreds of hours of pulling your hair out trying to figure the simplest thing out . Things like frame rates, codecs , pixel aspect ratio. The world of creative filmmaking is frought with difficulties trying to bring what you have in your head on to your computer screen at the end of the day . We will also take you out on all our shoots and wandering around whistler is amazing on its own, let alone capturing something amazing .
Our team consists of three main members Me ( no film school, Simon Fraser University for business, 7 years filming for work ) Eric ( just out of film school , our trainee ) and Zander ( our tree climbing and rope rigging guy )
What kind of timeframe did you have in mind ?
we would begin by letting you film for a day as you currently know how , i don't want to interefere on the first day . we evaluate that in a chill but often blunt way. We at Epic Mountain Video have a huge respect for our audience and so any shot that doesn't bring something to our audiences day immediately gets chopped.
Remember this is a very realistic mountain bike video school, we live and work in a nice house together in an awesome location . Some of the biggest morons in the world go to film school , if you are enthusiastic there is no reason to limit yourself to film school. I am a firm believer in an academic education as well as a hands on education . I chose to learn business and economics at University but my research lead me to believe that there was no film school that would teach me what I need for the ski , snowboard, parkour , skate , bmx , mountain bike and all the other things I want to film .
Each course ( this is our first summer) is very personal and based around what you want to bring to your filming , editing and distribution.
Due to the my creative nature we will learn things in the wrong order, not by the book. I have learnt to film from a necessity of needing good shots, quickly/efficiently that I am abe to sell to put food on the table. That is the kind of film school this is , we teach you to think like a pro fimer. As opposed to learning we hope you will absorb an attitude that becomes instinctive and allows you to have more fun with your filming.
We are just a group of guys who have an unusual set of skills that the world seems to want to learn , we are having a great reponse from this ad and are looking to line up our first student arrivals.
