For all those that miss the transmission time (or for those of you that live outside the South West), you will be able to watch the film on the BBC iPlayer.
The film follows 71 year old mountaineer and double amputee Norman Croucher from Devon. Not content with having scaled some of the world’s biggest peaks, including Cho Oyo in Tibet at over 8000m on his two tin legs, Croucher has decided to learn to paraglide.
Shot on location in the Lake District in Cumbria and in Dorset and Devon, the film follows Norman on his journey. But at 71 is this a challenge too far for the intrepid adventurer?
For more information on Norman Croucher, please visit his website here.
The course is aimed at anyone with an interest on documentary film and is based around a ‘live’ project to be produced in Exeter as part of the course. The film will be planned, scripted, shot, edited and produced by the students during the week. The final film will be uploaded to Youtube and Vimeo and, for those students hoping to go on to make a career in film and TV, this project will make a valuable addition to their screen credit list.
During the course, students will learn about the key practical elements of documentary filmmaking, about the editorial and planing process, about project preparation as well as learning valuable production tips and techniques on documentary camera skills, audio and post production.
The course costs just £300 for a full week of tuition. For more information and to book a place on the course, please call 01392 667 066 see the Exeter Phoenix website here:
