About HuntCo Filmschool

While sitting in a tree stand on a fall evening back in 2006, Joe Allen decided that he wanted to find a way to document his hunts for whitetail deer. After keeping a simple diary of notes for a few seasons he decided to take cell phone photos and videos of his hunting locations. Eventually, in 2011 Joe took a video camera to the woods for the first time in an effort to record at least a portion of his hunts. In an effort to create a higher quality image, Joe researched and taught himself how to use different types of cameras and eventually decided to use a DSLR camera as his main camera during hunts. He believed that, while many other videographers were using DSLR cameras as a second angle camera, if he could develop the skill and correct combination of equipment to successfully film hunts with a DSLR alone he would create a film like a video that would be unique compared to the standard hunting show or video.

 

Joe eventually met a producer who created many different television shows and commercials for the Pursuit channel. When this producer saw Joe's work he invited Joe to be a part of his shows and also asked for his help in commercial projects. Knowing that the next step would be to collect as much quality hunting footage possible, Joe began to develop a team of hunters who had proven track records of serious success hunting whitetail deer. With a strong focus on a quality product being the driving force for Joe, he shared his self-taught knowledge with this group of skilled hunters who eventually also became skilled videographers and storytellers themselves.

 

Now, Joe Allen, executive producer for HuntCo TV is sharing his knowledge with online students like you.

I got into filming fast and there was so much I didn't know about at all, then I came across Joe's film school and signed up. It was broken down into easy sections and explained to the point even I could understand it just after getting my camera a few weeks prior. End Scene.
