‘Slapping The Fat Woman’

During duckrabbit training one of the many things I like to bang on about is how important titles are and there’s no doubt ‘Slapping The Fat Woman’ is one of my favorites.

The title was conceived  by one of  the talented photographers who came on duckrabbit’s first Summer workshop, in which they had just three days to produce a photofilm from scratch (without any prior experience of making one).  The work was outstanding and below you can see just how much fun it can be to ‘slap a fat woman’ (if you know what you’re doing).

If you are a photographer hoping to make the transition into photofilms you can find out more about duckrabbit’s training here.  I will be announcing new courses very soon (all our Summer courses sold out fast), so if you are interested drop me an email ([email protected]).

What the trainee’s say:

‘I really can’t thank you enough for last weekend, it was an absolutely brilliant three days.

I couldn’t imagine before we set out on Friday how or where to start and how I was going to be able to get all the audio and stills in one afternoon to be able to make a photofilm, but miraculously we did!

I would 100% recommend this course to anyone wanting to start making photofilms, I found the whole weekend incredibly inspiring, informative (beyond belief) and very exciting in what it has made me realise it is possible to do.  Thank you So SO much.’ Georgina Cranston

A great thanks for the training which was clear, well-paced and flexible but more importantly it preserved the initial inspiration I had at the start of the course.  I will definitely recommend the training to anyone interested in producing film shows/MM.’  Dominic O’Regan

Thank you for a great workshop. Although I already knew the technical part of editing audio and making a photofilm, I learned an awful lot. Mainly on how to actually make a story, which is probably more important then just knowing how to cut, paste and work with the software.’ Emiel Elgersma
