Film, TV & Media Hostile Environment Training  

"Avoiding you, from becoming the headline"!

We have the best job in the world… It allows us to see and experience things, that most people can only dream of. It can take us to a whole variety of amazing and interesting places, far from the well-known tourist traps… It puts us in contact with people that you would never normally meet.

One day, we could be filming a lost tribe in a remote part of Borneo and the next working in the Canadian Arctic…

However, there is a darker side; statistically, media crews have a higher death and accident rate than firefighters! - a lot of these incidents are avoidable with the right preparations and knowledge. 

The aim of this course

To give you basic tools to avoid getting into trouble in the first place; we examine every part of preparing a foreign shoot, from its conception to a safe return… from social-political to the natural world. 

We then shift the emphasis of the course in practical training if things do get out of hand and how you could get out of a situation not only alive but with your mental health intact and with all your body parts!!!

Our USP 

Most Hostile Environment Media training is conducted by ex-military personnel, and although this has its obvious benefits, it lacks the application of using the safeguards for those using it - us the content generators.  

Our knowledge comes first hand from being on the ground and dealing with problems and situations close up and personal. Either in the back streets of Mogadishu or a mountain pass in Afghanistan. As well as time on Mt Everest to Antarctica to the Sahara to the jungles of Borneo. 

We offer a three-day course in both London and Bristol

at a cost of £600 with a maximum of six students
