Hueco: Video Workshop and Rock Rodeo

posted by dpm on 01/03/2012


On March 2, 2012, the day before the Hueco Rock Rodeo, professional videographers Andrew Kornylak and Josh Fowler will be hosting a video workshop for aspiring climbing filmmakers.  On the workshop’s Facebook Page they explain:

This will be a half-day advanced-level workshop on shooting documentary-style video with a small team of two or more, geared towards experienced photographers or independent videographers who want to take their video production to the next level. Held in the boulderfields of Hueco Tanks with a specific emphasis on climbing cinematography, the hands-on workshop will cover professional camera options for documentary-style video, field sound recording and mixing, location lighting options for video, and coordinating production between two or more people.

The workshop is limited to 15 people and the cost will be $150 per person. Participants will not be expected to bring or use their own equipment. There will be plenty of hands-on opportunities for everyone with gear provided by the workshop. This workshop is intended for those who already have experience in photography and/or video, and will assume a working knowledge of video or video-DSLR cameras. A harness and climbing-appropriate clothing is advisable but not mandatory. Plan to bring snacks and water.

In addition to an afternoon of intensive learning from two industry leaders, the opportunity to shoot with some of the best boulderers in the world, workshop recipients will receive gifts from sponsors Deadpoint Media, Lowepro and Westcott Lighting.

Andrew Kornylak and Josh Fowler are leaders in the climbing filmmaking business.  Their most recent feature film “A Fine Line” can be downloaded at  You can view an excerpt from the film by clicking here or on the image below.
