Become a more confident filmmaker with our
seven days film workshop in Norway.

 

In June 2024, we are arranging our fifth film workshop at our filmstudio in Oslo, Norway. We will invite you over and arrange an unforgettable film workshop with focus on how to become a good filmmaker.

Anyone can sign up for the workshop (amateur or professional). All we require is that you have a basic understanding of cameras and basic editing skills. And be quick, as there is only room for about 10 people. We want a small group so we can easily interact and get to know each other.

The Andyax Workshop is an unforgettable, worthwhile experience for anyone interested in filmmaking. They were helpful in film theory and also allowed us to be hands on with their high quality equipment. It was amazing to meet people from all around the world and experience Norway with the community Anders built. 

Nicole (USA)

I´m very used to working on my own. So working with a separate director, cinematographer, light technician, sound recordist. And all of that making it work was very fascinating and new to me. 

Julian (England)

I have been participating twice, and it’s just getting better and better!

If you attend the workshop, you will get to know fellow, like-minded film enthusiasts, and you can all share your experiences and learn from each other. 

Martin (Germany)

For me, the week just flew by and I wished it could be a little longer. This was worth every penny, and I would do this every year if I had the time and the means. I couldn’t recommend this enough to anybody that is thinking about a workshop like this. Just do it.

Trevor (Canada)

Normally I am just a one-person-show, doing my own camerawork, my own lighting, audio and so on. So to be part of a team with people with different inputs was an amazing experience for me.

To have access to all the equipment that Anders has was quite amazing as well, and something I don’t normally have access to.

Martin (Australia)

For me, the eye-opener this week was the audio. With what I learned this week and looking back to before the workshop, I realize now that is one step I need to take.

We shared experiences, and towards the end, Anders stepped a bit back and let us have the responsibility and decision-making on the short film.

Jan Kees (Netherlands)

I learned how important lighting is, and what mood and emotions it can tell, complementing the acting.

The whole experience was much more than I expected! I got way more than I thought I would with this course, and it will really expand your horizons.

Sindre (Norway)

I was very happy with the workshop and I learned a lot. Especially the things we learned on lighting – we could see how much impact good vs bad lighting had.

It never got boring, and I think I wrote like 20+ pages in addition to all the hands-on work! The workshop is well suited for both beginners and advanced filmmakers.

Practical info and pricing

Q/A

What kind of gear should I bring?

If you have, we recommend you to bring a camera, a laptop, and an external hard drive. If you have questions regarding your camera gear, the workshop is a good place to get help.

Is this workshop for beginners?

The workshop is for beginners as well as professionals. You might wonder how this is possible? First of all, a professional doesn’t necessary know how to produce films as a whole team, which can be extremely valuable. And we will focus on the question: Why do we do what we do when making films? This is as interesting for beginners as veterans. By understanding how things work and why a specific product is going to help us tell our story, we can more clearly find our direction as a filmmaker. Learning techniques and theory can be done through YouTube. Understanding the film production can only be done by doing, hands on.   

How do I get to Oslo?

You book and pay your flight ticket to Oslo Airport. Then you get to Oslo by either train or bus. If you take the train, VY is the cheapest while The Airport Express Train is the most comfertable.

Is there anything to see near the filmstudio/workshop?

There is a lot to see! We are located in the centre of Oslo (Torggata 9A) so it’s close to everything. 

Where should I book accommodation?

There are quite a few places to stay close to our filmstudio like Comfort Hotel Xpress Youngstorget, Anker hostel and Clarion Collection Hotel Folketeateret.
