The Goals

Story

Story

Our first and most important goal is to tell a good story. This comes in the form of structure, vigilant documentation, and knowing what an audience needs to stay interested.

Uncover

Uncover

Our mission is to uncover Trapper Lake. We aim to capture it in it’s beauty before it completely grows over from lack of visitation.

Summit

Summit

Our mountaineering project puts us up on the summit of the 10 major and minor peaks surrounding the lake as we attempt a never-before completed travers.

Capture

Capture

We must not only hike, climb, raft, and summit… but we have to film and record our entire journey day in and out!

TECH

100% 4K

To Future proof the film, and share the best quality, we have prepared all of our equipment to be 100% 4k or beyond. We have also prepared our editing and deliverables pipeline to be 100% 4k compliant.

100% Solar

Where we’re going, the only way to charge all of our gear, is through portable solar panels and generators that we’ll carry in with us.  Our entire production will keep those noisy gas generators far from our National Parks, and use only the latest innovations in portable solar power.
