Today I'm editing one video piece from last weekend at a poetry event in Denver: "100,000,000 Dead Poets for Spare Change;" and a video of my own, about running and more specifically about one runner. This is a still from one of the running locations in the foothills west of Denver.
This video follows Lauren from her first days running - something she swore she'd never do - to her first half-marathon, mere weeks after the start of training. The race is a trail race in Fort Collins that's not only her first race but a strenuous course and what she discovers has at least one section called the "F-you hill."
There's a little more to shoot for this, but the majority is done. I'm working on adding a lot of information to the short with text overlays and I'm excited for the final piece.
Back to the blog. This one was more of an event than a photo shoot, but the views from high on Colorado's 14,000+ foot peaks (fourteeners) are always amazing. This was for the Kite Lake Triple, a trail running race that summits Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, Mt. Lincoln, and (almost) Mt. Bross, which is technically "privately owned." I had fun running and taking photos, but if you want a more in depth post about it you can find it on Lauren's blog here.
The course elevation profile and map, the closest town is Alma, CO, which is 16 miles from Breckenridge.
I'm a photographer and film maker traveling in Southeast Asia for the first part of 2016.
