Adventures in Backpack Filmmaking is next ASC faculty lecture

(02-01-2012)

The Adams State College Faculty Lecture Series begins the spring semester with "Adventures in Backpack Filmmaking," by Danny Ledonne, filmmaker and teacher, will address this issue. The event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, in Porter Hall (the science building) room 130.

Until a decade ago, filmmaking required cases of heavy equipment and many crew members. With the advent of compact HD video cameras, it became possible to make "backpack films" in remote locations and with minimal crew -- often with stunning results. Filmmaker and Adams State adjunct professor Ledonne will share some of his recent work and reflect on the adventures behind the images from his travels to Alaska, Kenya, the Galapagos, and all around the continental U.S. Audience participation will be encouraged and there will be a strong likelihood for funny stories.

All talks are free and the public is invited. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Kristi Duran, associate professor of physics, at 719-587-7767, or klduran@adams.edu.
