      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Looking for climbers for documentary

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

I represent Red Line Films (see website), a television production company based in New York, and we're looking for athletes for a documentary who have inspiring stories to tell. We're interested in your climbing quests – what’s your current goal? What inspires you to reach for it? Do you have a powerful reason for working so hard towards this goal? Why is it imperative that you finish your quest? We will follow the subject as he or she trains, struggles, and excels, and then during the actual climb. In the end, we'll find out if your quest has been completed.

 

If you have a story to tell and would be interested in being involved, please let me know. Or holler if you can point me in the right direction. We're interested in learning about people all over America. Thanks for your time, and good luck out there!

 

Feel free to reply to this address:

I'll do it. (if you guys are footing the bill for me to go climbing) My main goal right now is to FINALLY after four seasons of trying complete the bunny face/nine gallon buckets linkup. I've been training pretty hard and should be ready to go in a couple months. Let me know.

Most climbers like to think of themselves as something other than athletes. Athletes are people who play games.

 

Pick Wayne or Colin, or Wayne AND Colin. You'll need two climbers anyway, unless this is about soloists. Wayne has done some of that, BTW.

John Kruk, rotund former baseball player was once chided by a woman because of his cherubic physique. Something about not looking like an athlete to whoch her replied "hey lady, I'm not an athlete, I'm a ball player".

So what IS the deal with Dan - and why isn't he everyone's favorite dude? Reading up on it, but as novice, can't quite grasp the controversy.

 

Just ask him. He'll tell you.

Any chance that I could be in the film? :confused:

 

I'm very goal oriented. I've been trying to get up on the roof of the hen house for weeks now. Almost got it.

 

Let me know.

I would have no part of any film that would allow me as a performer.

 

unless a reticent acerbic dirtbag is what you want, and I control editing.

 

Thanks for your consideration. I agree, Wayne or Colin.

Colin's a busy guy with an agenda. If you want to get him on film you better be prepared to go to places like Pakistan or Patagonia and other places that start with P and rhyme with "pucker".

Or choose the other end of the spectrum.

I'm fat, old, have two kids, and am starting to get back into climbing shape.

Catch me quick. I'll look like Brad Pitt in a few weeks.

I suffered oxygen deprivation at birth and, subsequently, have felt smothered, subconsciously, by my mother ever since. I climb to escape, metaphorically, this inescapable feeling of suppression and yet, ironically, am consumed with high-altitude climbing to experience the oxygen deprivation that makes me feel closer to my mother... subconsciously.

 

- with the added factor that I must climb with heavy fleece pressed against my face.

 

 

As an aside, I scour the high places searching for the Yogi :pagetop:
