It’s rare, these days, to watch a wildlife documentary that isn’t littered with stunning clips where time has been stretched or compressed. Time lapse sequences show the slow events of nature that are difficult to appreciate at normal speed, such as the opening of a flower, mushrooms growing, caterpillars eating a leaf or clouds scudding over dramatic scenery, not to mention sunsets and sunrises. The opposite effect – slow motion using high-speed photography – can reveal the beauty of rapid actions such as leaping dolphins, bursting seed pods and hovering kestrels.

These techniques and more are taught by Wildeye (The International School of Wildlife Film-making) which was formed in the late 1990s and has become the leading provider of independent training in wildlife film-making. They run short courses in Norfolk and longer trips overseas. Coming up they have a few places available on their highly acclaimed Wildlife Camera Operator Course (Norfolk) Fri 13th Jun 2014 - Sun 15th Jun 2014. This is a hands-on tech weekend using the latest camera technology for wildlife including slow motion, aerial coptors, 4K cameras, 3D on a budget, super-macro etc. There is also a time lapse workshop which includes how to create super time lapse sequences using DSLR cameras and intervalometers.

This is suitable whether  you are hoping  for a career as a wildlife camera operator or film wildlife as hobby.  With a high tutor to student ratio, this course is unique  in content and value for money - the cost is just £345 which includes accommodation, all meals, tuition and use of equipment. It is taught by wildlife film-maker Mike Linley, Piers Warren - Principal of Wildeye, independent  wildlife film-maker Adrian Cale and Simon Beer - a video camera specialist.
