Award-winning film-maker David Diley – the man behind documentary Of Shark and Man – has teamed up with Oonasdivers to host some week-long Underwater Film-Maker Workshops at Marsa Shagra in southern Egypt.
During your week you will gain underwater cinematography techniques such as the art of diving as a camera operator, editing and post production-colour correction and grading, topside cinematography, effective storytelling, sound design and how best to deliver your videos for either public performance or online streaming – basically, everything you need to turn your videos into engaging, short films.
The primary objective of the workshop is to allow you to flourish in a creatively stimulating and non-competitive environment which encourages you to try different things and truly find talents you may not have previously known you have. Team work, questions and enthusiasm are encouraged and you will have unrestricted access to David Diley, an award-winning film-maker with professional expertise both behind and in front of the camera, as well as the entire post-production process.
Whether you want better holiday videos to share with friends or you want to become a professional yourself, this workshop is the ideal place to do some world class diving, learn and most importantly, have fun!
The first workshop runs from 4-11 October and includes seven nights full-board in a beach safari tent at Marsa Shagra, and five days of unlimited house reef diving with two orientation dives and one dive at Elphinstone. Prices start at £1,495.
New dates will be added in 2018 – watch this space!
