Travelling & Storytelling

SHOOT & RUN

Guerrilla filmmaking is the process of producing film using inexpensive equipment and with as little crew as possible. Because of its “shoot-and-run” philosophy, it has become a popular trend among struggling and established filmmakers who want creative freedom in telling stories that rock the world with sensitive and sometimes shocking themes.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

The northern areas of Pakistan are home to the world’s three famous mountain ranges — the Himalayas, the Karakorams and the Hindukush. The whole area, blessed with landscapes with their breathtaking views coupled with the warm hospitality of the local people, is truly a dream for any storyteller.

SILK ROUTE

“Karakoram Highway” is also known as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ for its sheer mountain grandeur and breathtaking panorama of beauty. Few places on earth can match the superb landscape through which the Karakoram Highway snakes.

 

HUNZA VALLEY
Across the Hunza river, there lies a series of towns known as the ‘oasis of youth’, and for more than one reason: people here are believed to live on average around 120 years old, rarely get sick and their appearance is invariably young.
NANGA PARBAT
Nanga Parbat is one of the eight-thousanders—14 independent mountains on Earth that are more than 8,000 metres high above sea level. All eight-thousanders are located in the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges in Asia.

"Guerrilla tactics are the best. There is nothing wrong with spending a night in jail if it means getting the shot you need." Werner Herzog

THE JOURNEY

There has always been a connection between travelling and storytelling. You will capture images of the places you visit and the people you meet along the way. You will return and screen videos and / or exhibit photographs of the places you visited and the people you met, and how they changed your perspective on the world. So, experience the athletic side of filmmaking on July 12th thru 22nd.
