Make Your Own Legends

Adventure Film School is back for another incredible year at the Adventure Film Festival. Inspired by Jonny Copp’s vision to Make Your Own Legends, we’ve packed this year’s workshop with more hands-on sessions to get you out there telling stories.

Whether you are a past attendee or a new one, this two-day workshop has a new format focused on collaboration with fellow workshop attendees and connecting you with notable filmmakers ready to share what they know.

In addition to information packed sessions, gear demos, and portfolio reviews, workshop participants will work side by side with an AFS filmmaker to plan, shoot, and edit a 1-2 minute film. Adventure Film School offers a unique way to gain crew experience, build industry connections, and create a short film while being supported by your mentors.

  • Three P's

    Pre-Production. Production. Post. A complete filmmaking experience.

  • Make Connections

    Connect & build relationships that will last beyond the course.

  • Less Talking. More Doing.

    The world is your classroom. Learn by doing.
