Wednesday 8th March 2017
Join us for a remarkable personal insight into the world of extreme filmmaking with Producer, Director and Cinematographer; Phil Coates.

During this workshop, Phil will show footage and share in detail how he overcome the challenges of working in some of the most extreme, challenging and hostile environments on earth.

Discover some of the ‘trade secrets’ of shooting in the frozen Arctic Ocean and what it’s like to film with the Libyan rebels that overthrew Gaddafi and how to cope in temperatures above 40C!

As part of a limited number of attendees you will be able to learn from and question Phil, making the session extremely practical and interactive.

Described by Canon as “One of TV’s most experienced and intrepid cameramen”, Phil has worked on extreme location assignments across the world for over 25 years, for the likes of the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, ABC Australia, Discovery International and the National Geographic Channel to name but a few.

We are running two identical sessions, one from 10:00 to 12:00 and the other 14:00 to 16:00.
Each one starts with an interactive presentation which includes some remarkable footage from Phils many adventures followed by a Q&A session.
