Inspired by our 21 Day Story & Grit Adventure film making expeditions we are proud to launch a 10 day version for those short on time. Designed to be taken during vacations we will focus upon
getting you out into an expedition setting and honing your film making skills. This 10 day workshop is packed full of hands on sessions designed to give you the skills to tell your own stories and learn
outdoor skills.

We will be based in the city of Cusco the one time capital of the Inca Empire and now world famous for its archaeological remains and Spanish Colonial architecture. During workshops you will collaborate with your fellow adventurers on topics such as workflow, editing techniques, camera and sound recording. On the expedition side you will learn first aid, trekking 101 which will include backpack loading, safety techniques, navigation, communication in the wilderness and campcraft.

We will immerse ourselves in the expedition and by the end of the trip will produce a 1-2 minute film. This course will prepare you not just as filmmakers but adventurers. Developing multiple skill-sets that will be of benefit throughout your journey as a story teller.

Come and join Prelude Films and 40|40 Adventures this summer in Cusco, Peru.

Have a Question?

A perfect combination of physical, mental, and emotional challenge. There are few things and moments in life that challenge all of these at once, but 40/40 adventures accomplishes it perfectly. They literally are the only guides or group that I have been on where the only requirement is that I just show up. They made the trip easy to go but then were able to challenge me when I got there. It was an amazing experience!
