Calling all women interested in entering the world of wildlife filmmaking! Maybe you’re a scientist who wants to learn how to create films about your work. Maybe you’re a photographer or writer who wants to expand her skillset. Maybe you have simply been interested in filmmaking but didn’t know where to start. This is the workshop for you…if you’re a woman. There is no better time to put your stamp on the filmmaking world. During this workshop, you will join a rainforest adventure at the Cocobolo Nature Reserve in Panama, and gain hands-on experience crafting wildlife films from start to finish. During this trip, you will have the opportunity to work in teams crafting stories that range from natural history to the stories of the people of the reserve and surrounding community. Our fearless leaders are Jenny Nichols and Morgan (Mo) Heim, two passionate female filmmakers whose credits include Elk River; Remember When; The End of Snow and A Ghost in the Making. You can find their work in outlets such as National Geographic, World Wildlife Fund, CNN’s Great Big Story and OutsideOnline. Both Jenny and Mo are passionate about building the community of women wildlife filmmakers, and they want you to become a part of it.
