Award-winning wildlife film makers, Karen Bass and Neil Nightingale, will be joining One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) on three of its forthcoming small ship adventure cruises, to offer expert advice and personalised workshops for passengers wishing to create or enhance their holiday videos. Karen, who has travelled the world for over 30 years, producing and directing films and television series for both the BBC and National Geographic, will give talks, master classes and offer advice throughout the voyage, helping guests to create their own lasting souvenir of an amazing polar experience.
Award-winning wildlife filmmaker and zoologist, Neil Nightingale, will also be on board. Neil has travelled and worked in many of the wildest corners of our planet and, through his films and television programmes, has shared his passion for the natural world with millions of people around the globe. Guests can travel alongside Karen and Neil on three departures, ‘Falkland Islands, South Georgia & Antarctica’ (18 October to 6 November 2017), Canada’s East Coast Fins & Fiddles (14 to 24 July 2018) and Labrador & Torngat Explorer (24 July to 3 August 2018).
In addition to offering small group workshops designed to cater for complete novices, as well as those looking to improve their film making skills, the two natural history experts will spend quality time with guests over meals, at the bar, on zodiac journeys and on shore landings.
Passengers will learn the art of visual story telling through shooting and editing advice, top tips and techniques, combined with guidance on how to use sound and music to enhance the emotion of the film. For those not interested in creating their own video, there will be numerous interesting presentations about life behind the scenes in the natural history world, with plenty of anecdotal stories about wildlife filmmaking in almost every environment on earth.
Among the photographic highlights of the October departure to Antarctica are the vast king penguin colonies of South Georgia, the dramatic beach scenes as elephant seals fight for territory and females, and the ever-changing weather, providing wonderfully atmospheric sea and landscapes.
