This weekend course, based out of Ucluelet, BC, is designed to introduce outdoor enthusiasts to digital video content creation. The focus will be on storytelling with educational content and using the equipment we have readily available to us. Participants will gain hands-on experience writing stories for video, setting up a shot and building a scene (cinematography basics). Learn tips and tricks for professional looking video, and editing, publishing and sharing content.

The goal of the Raincoast Institute is to offer high-quality continuing education courses that inspire adults and young adults to connect with natural ecosystems. We partner with local and visiting educators and researchers to offer in depth weekend field courses covering a range of topics specific to the ecology of the region. Rooted in the Nuu-chah-nulth philosophy of Hishuk-ish-tsawalk (everything is connected/everything is one), our courses provide opportunities to study natural ecosystems from a holistic perspective, and to engage with specific ecological components through hands-on, outdoor-based learning.
