Peter Chrzanowski is offering an intensive one week extreme filmmaking workshop in the town of Golden, a gateway to ski resorts including Canada's newest ski resort, Kickinghorse, as well as Sunshine Village, Lake Louise and as some of the best backcountry terrain in North America with Rogers Pass and three mountain ranges (Selkirks, Rockies and Purcells) in the back yard. Many freeskiers may remember Peter as one of the founding judges of WESC back in 1991. He has judged for 8 years in Valdez, in Red Bull's Chamonix Extremes, as well as Crested Bute US Nationals.

Not only you will get to discover shredding North America’s newest big ski development, but while at it they will enjoy some of the best skiing and boarding in North America. Kickinghorse boasts a brand spanking new eight passenger 4200ft (1400meters) vertical gondola in just 12 minutes. Your days will be spent dividing into small groups of two or three students at a time, and led by Chrzanowski (Peter Peru is his nickname) venture into some of the best powder terrain on this planet.

Kickinghorse already has a reputation for some of the best powder snow on earth. It is also already dubbed as “The La Grave of North America“ with a state of the art gondola accessing acres of easily reachable virgin snow terrain. By day you will hone your camera skills as well as directing and working with action talent. By evening you will learn some basics of making that footage really pay off. You will learn some basic filmmaking theory, scripting/storyline procedures, then it’s off to training and editing skills themselves. But that’s not all. The rest of the time you are also viewing and critiquing other films, listen to guest industry experts and learn the entire business from pre-production, production to marketing and distribution.

And if that is not enough, Kickinghorse is located in Golden BC , which is also only an hours drive eastward from Rogers Pass and the same distance westward from Lake Louise and the majestic Canadian Rockies. Customized trips can therefore venture into some of Canada’s best backcountry mountain terrain.

Whether your interest lies in training for larger 2nd unit shoots on feature films, becoming an outdoor DOP , writing, producing or directing your own films, from short dramas to adventure documentaries, or just learning the ropes in becoming an action model, this course is for you.

This is also an excellent opportunity to learn English as a second language, in a fun and healthy environment. Both trendy conversational English as well as more sophisticated, technically film related dialogue will be covered in the course and corrected by Peter, who holds a degree in Communications from Simon Frazer University. He speaks four languages being fluent in French, Spanish, Polish and English

Sessions start mid February through April 1st 2003. Space is limited.
