A workshop for wedding filmmakers
Venture is a wedding filmmaking workshop for anyone that desires to go beyond just filming a wedding. It is a place for wedding filmmakers to come to be inspired, to further their knowledge and skills, and to build community with fellow filmmakers in this industry. Venture is for everyone – whether you are new to the wedding scene or have been around for years.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM VENTURE
VENTURE will be held at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, NM (two hours north of Albuquerque, NM, the closest airport) on November 12-15, 2018!
Arrive Monday night around 5pm and get to know everyone. Share a meal together and pass the time as we prepare everyone for the following 3 days of filming and training.
This day will consist of training sessions as well as filming actual couples. *You will be able to use this content for your own reel and business if you'd like.
Wednesday will be more training sessions, more filming, and more focused attention for each individual at the workshop.
Another full day of individual focused attention and collective training sessions. We will check out of our cabins by 11am and then continue the sessions in and around the lodge before saying our goodbyes and bidding each other farewell around 1pm.
Most of What we'll be covering
How to speed up your process and save time while navigating the various techniques of a wedding edit. (we'll have advanced editors teaching in FCPX and Premiere)
Learn how colors and looks can make or break your film and how to define your visual style.
Learn to build a profitable business that allows you to charge what you’re worth and work with your ideal clients while giving yourself the freedom to invest time into passion projects/family.
CLIENT COMMUNICATION and Pricing
How to communicate with your clients, how to setup your packages for optimizing your value, charging what you're worth, and more.
COMPOSITION & LIGHTING
Learn to compose and utilize lighting for better storytelling and emotion.
CRAFTING THE EDIT
This one will be fun! We are always telling stories, but not all stories are the same. Learn how to pull out the narratives and craft stories that not only the couple will love, but also your future clients that are considering booking you, vendors that want to recommend you, and anyone else that is viewing your films.
We will work personally with everyone to help them setup their gear to capture stunning content for their stories.
Everything you need to know to capture the best audio possible and adapt to various scenarios. We'll also be diving into audio in post.
One of our favorite take-aways that people love is the community built at Venture. You'll be sitting next to your future friends, second shooters, and referrals at this workshop. You'll be part of a FB community that continually pours into each other and keeps up with each other.
Venture will be held at an amazing location called Ghost Ranch of Abiquiu, NM. Situated just two hours north of Albuquerque, NM, Ghost Ranch will host everyone on site as well as provide freshly prepared meals every day. We'll be able to accommodate most food preferences and dietary restrictions. We will have the opportunity to hike out through the various desert locations with a couple among the scenery complete with painted mountains and desert vibes. At the Ranch, we will be hosting the workshop lessons as well as having a full day of filming various couples/models around the property and out into some exclusive locations. There are multiple lodges each with seperate beds as well as sleeping arrangements to add to the intimate desert feels.
