Boulder, CO (Date) August, 2012–For those who can scarcely imagine the view from the roof of the world, join Outside Adventure Film School’s Adventure : Storytelling seminar to hear about the earth’s pinnacle from Michael Brown, who has captured the marvel from behind a camera lens five times.  Presented by Serac Adventure Films, ignite your wanderlust August 17-18, 2012 in Boulder, CO and listen to Brown speak of his expeditions around the globe.  Expand your lungs in crisp mountain air, gain insight on the ancient art of storytelling but add an adventurous twist, and learn filmmaking tips from the pros.

Those who have heard Brown speak before claim he is not someone to miss.  Ace Harmon in his blog, Worldwide Ace Blog, noted, “It’s hard to pinpoint what was different with Michael’s talk, but one thing that clearly made a difference was passion. Michael spoke from the heart and was honest… For this, he should be lauded, and I can only hope more people follow in his footsteps.” According to Brown, “the first priority is to have fun.” 


Newly inspired, seminar attendees will have the option to be led up one of Colorado’s 53 14,000ft climbs, summiting their own peak after hearing about Brown’s expeditions to the world’s tallest.  


Back at the weekend’s headquarters in Boulder, the Outside Adventure Film School staff will be on site to offer camera, storytelling and filmmaking advice.  Former Outside Adventure Film School Participant, Monika Bunting applauded the team, “all the instructors were easy to be around and fun to be with, creating a community of students and experts coming together around a common passion for film and storytelling.” After the seminar, participants are welcome to extend their stay in Boulder to edit their shots at Serac Adventure Films, located on the lively Pearl Street walking mall.
