For the past ten years, World Nomads has been providing up-and-coming filmmakers with invaluable mentorships with industry professionals. These experiences are custom tailored to deliver true in-field experience, and equip budding filmmakers with sound knowledge of camera, audio, capturing a narrative, interviewing, direction, and post-production.
Most importantly, our mentorships allow our recipients to understand what is at the heart of good travel filmmaking. We do this by showing new perspectives, encouraging lateral thinking, and providing access to incredible stories around the world.

Creating an emotional connection with your viewer is the key to great storytelling. Visual storyteller Gregg Bleakney from WhereNext explains, it’s all about thinking like Jason Bourne.
After cycling from Alaska to Argentina, Gregg landed in Bogota where his love for film, photography & storytelling led him to starting up his own visual storytelling agency. We caught up with Gregg to learn more about what it takes to become a great visual storyteller.
Getting a great interview from your subjects on film is hard. Many people freeze as soon as the “recording” light comes on. Visual storyteller Benjamin Chesterton, from production company Duckrabbit, shows you how to get your subject to relax and tell a great story.
Benjamin directs and produces heartfelt stories in film for charities and commercial clients. Before co-founding his production company, Benjamin was a BBC documentary producer at Radio 4 and the World Service. We have a chat with Benjamin to uncover his experiences in telling great stories.
