And for very good reasons: The Platypus is unique among all video workshops because it is primarily about teaching film and video storytelling.
Santa Fe, one of the oldest cities in the southwest, has been the hub of trading and crafts since the days of the Spanish Conquistadors. Apaches and Comanches would bring their hostages there to be sold to the highest bidder.
That mix of Spanish and Native American descendants has made Santa Fe a place unlike any other city in the United States.
The physical beauty is simply staggering, and the desert will be in full bloom.
Santa Fe is filled with many colorful arts and trades, which previous Platypus attendants will tell you make this a prime venue for finding interesting and artistic stories to tell. It is also our longest workshop this year; a full eight days, which gives you time to learn to shoot, edit, and most importantly build stories.
To add to this positive and creative mix, the cuisine of Santa Fe is world famous. If you want barbeque, go to Texas, but if you want to sample the flavors of the old world and the new, you will find what you want amongst the hundreds of great restaurants, most of them moderately priced.
In other words, you will have a lot of fun, in addition to learning a lot.
