The workshop is eminently practical, so it is essential that participants are autonomous and have knowledge of their craft, as well as have access to their own personal tools and equipment. In the rainforest, you can expect rains any time of the year. It is essential to keep your gear covered to ensure that sudden rainfall doesn’t impact the remainder of your trip.
30 days prior to your departure, you will receive at no additional charge the Workshop Field Kit designed by Real Lives, valued €500. It is essential that you familiarize yourself with the tools and information included, in order to get the most out of your experience. The Field Kit includes:
- Day Pack: A waterproof, dry sack to serve as your day pack to protect important documents, equipment, art supplies, etc.
- Virtual Idea Book: The Osmo Pocket 4 K personal recorder will help you capture ideas, inspiration, subjects, ambience and if you like, a travelogue.
- Physical Idea Book: Heavy paper, a hardcover and an elastic binding is perfect to hold sketches, notes, mementoes and stories for future work.
Portability and durability should be strongly considered in selecting what to bring. As we may not have access to electricity during daily excursions, low energy equipment and battery backup chargers are recommended. Laptops and other equipment left behind will be stored in locked peli cases.
In addition to a 4k cinema camera and a computer equipped with editing programs, the workshop will make available to participants on request with a 4k drone, 4k waterproof action cam, boom mic, a wireless mic kit and/or portable audio recorder.
