FIRST ASCENT The Series!!!

Perhaps you have seen Renan and I in some of the classic climbing films that Sender Films has put out over the years, such as First Ascent, Return to Sender and The Sharp End. Nick Rosen and Peter Mortimer who are the "genius" behind Sender films were a big part of my inspiration to get into Film Making in the first place, and they still set the bar for adventure climbing movies. I figured if they could be such a junkshow and pull it off, maybe their was hope for me!!! Their latest work which will air as a five part series on National Geographic television in Europe later this year is all here, including "Promises," which stars Renan, myself and one of my best Friends Sean Leary.

After a long stint working on a big brand video for The North Face which will launch on thenorthface.com later this fall we are psyched to be able to release a "dispatch" from a new assignment. Bringing a story direct to a wide audience right after it happens is part of our soul as filmmakers...so here is the latest from the last few days!

Thanks to all those involved here in alpine wonderland of Chamonix, France.

By this end of this short movie, you should understand why the climb is now officially renamed "Boogie 'til You Poop!" Read more...
