Countdown in progress.
Still possible to get flight tickets and book your hotel if anyone wants to join us.
The more the better, and I can promise it will be fun!

Mat, you will probably find us at the "Bag of Nails" pub at least one evening.
Btw, I have sent you an email through dvinfo earlier, and included my number there.
Also added you to our facebook chat group.

Yanks attendees well in the money what with Sterling nose-diving. Suspect similar with USD when/if a new President seems likely!

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

Team Norway finally arrived tonight so the whole group is now together

Have seen some great films and attended some really good panel discussions.

The Holy Grail of Filmmaking was a great panel discussion about making films that follow your passion.
One of my favorites was Bear Trek. It is currently looking for distribution but this looks to be a great film.

There was also one from Columbia that looks beyond stunning. I will try to find more about that one.

Racing Extinction and The Ivory Game were both beautiful but depressing as well. Thankfully Racing Extinction provided hope by giving some suggestions on one thing we can do to make a difference.

Giving up one meal of meat a week is about the same as taking over 7 million cars off the road if we all would do it.

Some amazing stuff and it's so nice to be surrounded by like minded filmmakers.

The town of Bristol has rolled out the red carpet for us and there is even a beer made just for the festival.

For some reason I'm getting a security token errors when trying to upload pictures of hat's happening over here. Will keep trying.

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

When we have the next get together event, hopefully more of you get a chance to join in.
It is great to finally meet the gang after so many years. Everyone so nice and friendly.

It is now 10 years since UWOL was being planned, and the very first challenge was in January 2007.
We will not wait that long until next time we get together!

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

Met Patrick Rouxel this evening at Wildscreen.
Had a chance to view his new film "Life is One" which was both funny and sad. What an amazing person that gives up his life for the sun bears.

If you're not sure who he is, he also made the film "Green" which you can see for free on YoTube. Be warned, it will break your heart and make you very angry.

The group minus Vishal who was feeling under the weather, all met at Bag of Nails at the end of the evening to relax and most importantly to see the cats!

Bag of Nails is a pub that also houses like 14 cats that have the run of the place. What an amazing place!

Another round of films and discussions tomorrow!

I'll try to post more there since I'm having trouble posting here.
I'll also try to give some impressions about the festival

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

The first UWOL get together is starting to come to an end.
We now have faces to put with the filmmakers we've known for as long as ten years.

This was also my first major film festival that I've attended and now I'm seriously thinking about attending the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival next September.

Wish it was possible to pst photos here as I've documented our trip very well. Maybe I'll take the photos and make a virtual postcard. :)

We all felt that we should have future get togethers and we encourage everyone to come if you are able.
There is something magical about meeting like minded filmmakers in the nature and wildlife genre.

The number one thing I came away with being here for Wildscreen is to shoot what you are passionate about.

Don't worry about how long it takes or how much it costs. Follow your passion.

Bear Trek took eight years to complete and from the trailer I've seen looks amazing.

Most of the other films that I was very impressed with all took several years to complete.

I think the fact that we complete films in under a month is an amazing feat and I think it allows us to make the most of a situation when it unfolds in front of us.

Follow your passion, get out there and shoot and we'll see you at the next UWOL get together!

Re: UWOL "get together" event 2016?

So nice feedback from the "Get Together event in 2016".
Sorry I had to change the trip, but maybe next time I will participate :)
Would have been nice if you had pictures to show, not everyone is on FB.
You're a lovely bunch.
