Storyteller and long-distance hiker, Elina Osborne is no stranger to adventure filmmaking. Having created an award winning series that documented her thru-hiking journey on the Pacific Crest Trail, Elina pulls from her experience to cover the ins and outs of how to capture an adventure in a way that does it justice. In this course, Elina breaks down how to get past that post-adventure overwhelm of a hard-drive full of footage, staring at you, waiting to be dealt with. You will learn how to plan and prepare for documenting your adventure, how to balance experiencing vs filming, and how to make your story come alive once you return. This course will arm you with the knowledge and understanding necessary to document your own outdoor adventures to share.
