Keith Partridge – probably the most experienced climbing cameraman in the UK. Also adventure camera and soundman on dozens of TV docs and recently second unit cameraman on Touching the Void.

Richard Else director of Triple Echo Productions and Professor of Media Production at the University of Teesside. He is one of the most successful adventure documentary filmmakers. Richard was instrumental in leading early developments in desktop editing - making prime time television using Apple's Final Cut Pro system. However, he believes many potentially good adventure films are marred by a lack of coherent narrative and structure and he will be focusing on these aspects of filming in his workshop, using examples of previous work.

John Smithson from Darlow Smithson is producer of the forthcoming feature film “Touching the Void” He (and his company) have a track record second to none in television documentary production. John will show a clip from the film and describe the production issues in filming in such difficult environments.

Mark Dyson – Executive Producer of Raw Material Production Ltd who are currently making 52 adventure and exploration films for National Geographic Channel International.

The Extreme Film Pro Day is part of the Extreme Film School which is sponsored by Media Training North West, North West Vision, BBC, The Kendal Mountain Film Festival and The Northern Film Network.

Extra thanks must be given to Graham Hoyland for the concept and Lynne McCadden and Ruth Schofield of MTNW for their support and encouragement. Also to David Phillips from Visual Impact for the equipment display and help with speakers.
