5 Ways to Love in the Mountains
This short film is about Kyle Dempster and Jewell Lund climbing in New Zealand.
In the short film Aberration, Graham and Forest explore the limits of how far they can take their artistic collaboration in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Glacier Gorge, British Columbia’s Waddington Range and the craggy mountains surrounding Canmore, Alberta.
Fast and Light
In 2013 I took part in the Banff Adventure Film Makers Workshop. As part of this I worked with a team to create The Shiver Bivy in less than 24 hours. In 2014 I met back up with Jim Aikman and Austin Siadak to create a sequel. Once again we gave ourselves 24 hours to brainstorm and create the film but this time we were in Yosemite. Fast and light film making about fast and light climbing.
Seeking In Alaska
A three part episode on EpicTV about exploring in the Alaska Range looking for new routes on beautiful peaks. Episodes 2 & 3 can be found HERE.
Revival in the Waddington
In June of 2011 I was crushed by falling ice while climbing in New Zealand.
14 months later in August of 2012 I returned to the big mountains with good friends Scott Bennett, Blake Herrington and Forest Woodward. We headed to the gorgeous Waddington Range of British Columbia where we found near perfect weather and amazing rock walls.
This film attempts to portray the frustration of that injury and the joy of returning to the mountains. This was one of my first forays into the world of film making.
