So here were are, one week out from the official launch of the FindingLife Film School . The newest addition to the FindingLife brand. We provide filmmaking and photography work shops in the most awe inspiring environments on Earth. You learn from industry professionals and accomplished adventurers in the environments that we all dream of working in. From Africa to Asia, Kilimanjaro to Everest, the Sahara to the Amazon, we’ve got a workshop that is designed just for you.
We’ve decided to launch the company this March, in our hometown in Ottawa, at the Outdoor and Adventure Travel Show. AND… what better way to launch than to include a free giveaway to one of our exciting FindingLife Film School destinations.
Imagine… an opportunity where you get to travel to Kenya (for FREE) and participate in field work with a developmental aid agency. You will meet and interact with local people in highly colorful environments in challenging circumstances.
Camera in hand, under the instruction of Elia Saikaly and other qualified team leaders, your mission is to capture and tell meaningful and inspiring stories of the men and women whose lives you have the privilege of intersecting with. Moved beyond words with your camera in hand, you then transfer by Matatu (local transportation) across the border into Tanzania and make your way towards the foothills of the highest point in Africa – Mt. Kilimanjaro.
You travel through dense rain forest, across rocky marches and mixed terrain before making your final push to the highest point in Africa. There you will witness one of the most spectacular sunrises on planet Earth. Once again, under the leadership of our accomplished team of leaders, you will capture and create throughout the entire journey. By the end, you will have experienced what it is like to be an adventure filmmaker.
Every day of the itinerary is designed to ensure there is always an image to capture, a story to tell and an incredible experience to be shared. You not only need to keep up with the fast paced environment, but you’ll also be responsible for preparing yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to climb one of the seven summits of the world – Mt. Kilimanjaro.
