GoPro has taken on the title sponsorship of the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail and we could not be more delighted. It is a perfect fit to have the makers of the world's most versatile camera sponsoring the Mountain Games AND the Outside Adventure Film School. Working along side GoPro's instructors we will help you to not only shoot amazing footage of the world's best athletes but how to turn it into a meaningful story.
This year you will include the slack line world championships, amazing doc dogs competition, the mud run, the amazing athletes of the steep creek kayak competition and many more to choose from. Sign up now and we'll start helping you connnect with athletes and telling their (and your) stories.
There's no better time to be in Colorado. By early June, Vail has transitioned from winter white to spring green, and action sports of a different sort invade the valley. Whitewater kayaking, slopestyle biking, and World Cup Bouldering are among the adrenaline-filled events to take place at the GoPro Mountain Games, the country's largest celebration of mountain sports.
Students are given exclusive press passes to all events and competitions during the games. We take full advantage of the prime spots to capture some of the world's most extreme athletes at the height of their impassioned pursuits. Our instructors provide assist with camera techniques and storytelling, but film topics are decided entirely by the students themselves. There is no shortage of material to choose from.
After the last competition has played out, students edit their footage at the luxurious
Antlers at Vail Hotel. The school culminates with a student film festival where everyone gets to show off their short films.
We highly recommend that students take advantage of the fantastic discounted rates at the Antlers at Vail Hotel. As our sponsor hotel, Antlers is the location for editing, staff lodging, and participant lodging. Staying in a location close to your editing suite is an important part of your film school experience. Mention "Outside Adventure Film School" for discount when booking.
