it took us a little while but we finally got this put together for the blog. many of you have been asking about what educational experiences we’re offering for this year and we haven’t been able to share anything until now but here’s a look at where we’ll be in the coming months.
aside from these workshops and speaking engagements below we are also working on a couple more very exciting 2012 EDU experiences, all of which will be announced here as soon as we finalize the remaining details. stay tuned :)

What: EVO Experience 5.0
Where: San Francisco, CA
When: Nov 27-30th, 2012
the evolution experience is one of our premier EDU experiences designed to foster a better understanding of the art of filmmaking. through a deep exploration of the language of film we can better understand storytelling – ultimately giving us more control on the experience we leave our audiences.
there will be a mix of classroom style discussion on light, composition, lens choice, movement, audio as well as a heavy emphasis on hands-on learning through filming several short pieces while being mentored by the stillmotion crew. EVO is designed for filmmakers of all skill levels and although the course itself is taught at a quick pace and advanced level, we only ask that you be passionate about what you do and be excited to learn, share, and grow.
Details: the experience will be 3 days of intense filmmaking fun, hosted in our San Fran studio. it is limited to 16 spots and the investment is 2500 USD per person including all meals for the duration of the workshop. we will be recommending a hotel nearby and arranging for a group rate. for questions regarding the experience email joyce [at] stillmotion.ca or if you’re ready to dive right in contact alicja [at] stillmotion.ca to secure your spot with a retainer.
