RawMinds 2017 summer filmmaking project

Interested in documentary-making? Want to go on a residential trip where you can gain wilderness survival (bushcraft) skills and experience the countryside first-hand? You'll work with expert filmmakers, bushcraft professionals and scientific researchers in our summer project.

This summer we’re inviting you to join the new RawMinds team and create a short film that explores your relationship with nature and wildlife. Across the project you will have the opportunity to develop your filmmaking skills in areas such as storyboarding, planning, filming and editing in workshops led by a professional filmmaker. They will work with you from start to finish, from generating initial ideas through to finalising your team’s film.

At the centre of the project is an exciting three-day residential trip to a site outside of London. As well as filming your experience, everyone will take part in a range of bushcraft activities, from camping and fire-lighting to learning about wild food and navigation, with lots more in between. There’ll also be the opportunity to interview leading scientific researchers as part of your exploration of our relationships with nature.

Project dates

The project will take place over 12 days between mid-July and the start of September 2017. Unless otherwise stated, each non-residential day will run from 10.30 to 16.00, with a break for lunch (provided).
