Video: Mountains in Motion – The Canadian Rockies

posted by gumptiongear February 1, 2013 1 Comment

“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountain is going home; that wildness is necessity; that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.” – John Muir

Mountains in Motion: The Canadian Rockies is an award-winning short film documenting the life of the alpine landscape through time-lapse photography. In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, time-lapse sequences were patiently gathered from exposed summits, by glacial lakes, and under aurora-filled skies.

All told, dim the lights, turn up your speakers, view on the largest screen possible, sit back, relax and enjoy.

An Epic Story: Deep North

posted by gumptiongear December 7, 2012 0 comments

When Tommy Baynard, creator and executive producer of Flying Wild Alaska, suggested photographer Corey Rich put together a climbing expedition that could be featured on the show, Corey jumped at the chance.

The resulting documentary includes stunning photographs and video footage of the beautiful snow covered landscape  juxtaposed with the coverage of the demanding trek the climbers undertook.   Moreover, from our perspective it’s a story about gumption as Corey, videographer Dane Henry and four climbers traverse uncharted territory for a first ascent of one of the mountains located in Alaska’s Arrigetch Peaks, located in the Brooks Range, above the Arctic Circle.

Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”

The forthcoming film, Into The Mind, contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge?

The film is about becoming and the trailer, simply put… is magnificent.
