About Athloners
01.
1. Goals

The idea behind Athloners was to create a workshop where all the participants would share practical information that could be used in our businesses day to day. The ticket price is used only to cover the expenses of the event and some organisational or prep time compensation.

02.
2. Ethos

The ethos of Athloners is collaboration for the common good. A rising tide raises all boats. We all need to be willing to give of our experience as well as receive the wisdom and experience of  others.

03.
3.Community

Keith Malone created the Wedding Videographers Ireland Facebook group in order that we could help each other out and provide a sense of community in doing what can be a solitary job. The group has been helping wedding videographers for the last 10 years now, from microphone frequencies, to helping cover jobs in emergencies, to all sorts of equipment reviews and recommendations.

Conference Schedule

We’re delighted to announce that we’re running a 1 day workshop with Richard Leng of RL Films on Monday 28th Jan 2019, the day before the official start of Athloners.

Over the years I’ve been filming weddings my approach has been stripped back to what is now become the most effective way I can tell my clients story of their wedding day. To never be trend driven and to focus on the core ingredients that make a good film, light, composition and moments. An approach that is discreet, allowing the wedding to happen naturally. An approach that allows me to work from one small kit bag no matter where in the world I am. This is about being present and being brave, this is not about coverage. Its about being accountable as a wedding film maker to make good wedding films… period.

15 of us from the Irish Facebook group attended Richard’s 2 day Clarity workshop this year and we all agreed it was a game changer for us – from our attitude to equipment, to our shooting style, and to our business plans. Richard’s presentation style is anecodedol, funny and 100% real. Don’t miss it.

Everything is open for discussion and the workshop will be fully interactive, allowing for questions, discussions and tangents.

The price of this one day workshop will be €275 and it will run from 10am to 5pm with an hour for lunch.

We’re delighted to announce that we’re running a 1 day workshop with Michael Toman of Story of Eve on Monday 28th Jan 2019, the day before the official start of Athloners.

Story of Eve is one of the leading cinematic video brands in Ireland and over the last 6 years, Michael has created a brand that has taken him all over the world filming weddings as well as acquiring premium clients here at home.

Michael has an incredible eye for detail, for branding and for creating films that get to the heart of the day. Michael offers a mentoring service as part of the Story of Eve brand and the 1 day workshop will take elements of that to produce practical, useful, insightful take-aways that we can put into practice in our businesses.

He won’t hold anything back, looking at branding and how to attract the right couples for you. How he shoots, the equipment, the approach to editing, colour grading and narrative, as well as how he works with his couples – emails, consultation, Skype calls, contracts – all of the business side of Story of Eve. Everything is open for discussion and the workshop will be fully interactive, allowing for questions, discussions and tangents.

The price of this one day workshop will be €275 and it will run from 10am to 5pm with an hour for lunch.
