While relaxing a bit after the long flight over night I got to watch this beautiful visual poem about Steve House, a mountaineer of great experience. It’s done as a pretty high budget production for what you normally see in that field, what makes it maybe also so amazing to watch. Maybe I like it so much also because of my background in climbing and much earlier in mountaineering. The mountains always had a special impact on me and the magic of being out there will always be something that will keep me coming back, even now, where I live far away from the mountains and seldom find the time in my travel schedule to actually do trips.
But the reason why I share it with you here in first place is a different one. Tyler Stableford, the director of the piece, made a good effort also documenting the process of making the film, from the idea to shooting it and the post-production. I think it’s worth checking out and getting to know the thoughts that accompany the creation. I would wish for more filmmakers sharing their insights like that. Don’t be bothered by the bit of advertising for the Canon 1D X. I guess that is the deal when you want to produce something on that level of production without having a real market for it beside some film festivals. Anyway, when you look beyond that, it’s very interesting to follow them in the process.
