This is a new concept, taking place at the Hungary Heli Camp. It’s meant for skydivers who are, or want to become freefly camera flyers and who want to learn or improve their filmmaking and editing skills. A unique opportunity to get coached by two experts in their respective fields, during one of the funkiest freefly events in Europe.

 

The concept
During the Hungary Heli Camp, you’ll fly outside video every day with real participant groups. All these jumps with be coached and debriefed by the legendary Keith Creedy, who we consider a master of freefly videography. You can see some of his work on this page.

Each of the film students is responsible for one of the event’s day videos. This process will be heavily coached and assisted by our own editor-in-chief, Willem de Groot. On the first Sunday afternoon, Willem gives a seminar on filmmaking, storytelling and the basic rules of shooting and editing. Willem makes the first video for Monday eve, the film students get one day each to make and show their film, for which they can use each other’s footage if they wish. All the films will be shared online as well.

 

Can I join?
We have only 1 slots available in week one at this point. Week two is full. A certain minimum level is required, as you are responsible for your own and the group’s safety with regard to your flying with them. You therefore need to be in control of your own flying, and able to freely move around other people in freefall. There are groups of different levels, so you don’t need to film the ninja groups, if that doesn’t match with your own skills. We will assess each of you per email before accepting you in the program.
Week One – July 29 – August 2
Week Two – August 5 – 9
The price of the camp is the same a normal Heli Camp participant, but you basically get two coaches for the price of one…

 

The camp includes
– shared accommodation on the DZ in a 2 person room
– 19 outside video jumps
– 3 meals a day (buffet incl vegetarian and vegan options)
– airport pickup and return service
– final party on Friday of each week
You should arrange your own transport to and from Hungary. We provide a pickup and return service for those who fly into Budapest.
