What's Next

First of all, thanks to everyone who helped me get my film out. Jim Cavers and Forest Wisdom were kind enough to post the video on their blogs, thanks so much guys.

So, what's next? Depending on how much time I can get off work, I'll be going back to the Adirondacks with my brother for a climb of Cascade's Trap Dike, or possibly going back to Saint Regis to film the first installment of Worst Portage in the World, where Zack and I seek out insane carries, and then film ourselves getting crucified by them.

Then, I'm off to Vancouver for about two weeks, where I'll be hitting Squamish, the Juan de Fuca Trail, West Coast Trail, and some other awesome locales.

And of course, I'll be bringing both cameras along.

Saint Regis Reflections - Premier

Hey guys,

I just finished a 14 minute film about the Saint Regis Canoe Area, my favorite place to paddle in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. This is my first film while camping or canoeing, so there was a steep learning curve, and I'm still working out the kinks. But I welcome all suggestions and criticism; I'm trying to do this at a more professional level.

I put the film on Youtube to increase views, but as you guys know, the quality is not what it should be. If you can, watch it in HD. Thanks so much for your help, and I hope you like Saint Regis Reflections

Big Project!

OK, so I have not publicized this blog much yet, nor have I promoted my work yet.

That's about to change.

I recently got back from Saint Regis Pond (trip log forthcoming). I brought my video camera, and was able to shoot enough footage to hopefully have a short film, 15-20 minutes or so. I'll start editing it next week when I go home, and hope to have it all done by the end of May.

This is a huge step for me, and I'm planning to release and promote the hell out of it, to see what people's reactions are to my work.

Thanks for all the support so far, and I'm really excited to see what everyone thinks of my film.
