The Trails at Files Creek-12.jpg

In addition to our New Orleans video production and photography services, NolaVid holds creative retreats on 210 acres of historic Beverly, West Virginia wilderness. Built on the philosophy that the creative spirit is highly independent, our retreats are "self-directed" - with the option of feedback from NolaVid owner Max Cusimano (Vogue, USA Today, Eater) and other attendees. The retreats are for all skill levels.

The three day experience costs $1800.00 and includes boarding, food, and instruction (if desired). To apply, please send an email to with a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from this experience. If we think we can help you, we'll be in touch. Thanks and we look forward to reading your letter! 

*If the fall retreat is not able to happen due to Covid, we will reimburse you in full.

*If traveling from New Orleans, we recommend flying into Pittsburgh and renting a car for the 2.5 hour trip to The Trails at Files Creek. 

*We reserve the right to deny applications without explanation, but are unlikely to do so.
