Filmmaking in the Wilderness: How to tell your adventure story

Join Alex Maier, long distance hiker and documentary filmmaker, for this practical seminar with essential tools and tips to make your own documentary films with lightweight, inexpensive to high-end gear while hiking!

Alex Maier found his passion for long-distance hiking and for documentary filmmaking while walking the Pacific Northwest Trail and since then has expanded his thru-hiking experience and his film credits with the 800-mile Hayduke Trail, 550 miles of the North Country trail, and more.
