Climbing Documentary!

by bdizzle » Wed Jan 05, 2011 4:34 am

IMPORTANT Edit- Hey so if anybody is interested in fallowing this add us on facebook :) we would love feedback! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Raw-Mount ... 5156970411


Hey guys my name is Bradley Green, im 18 and am going to college at Bellevue College in Washington. Where im getting my business and video production degrees. I have just recently had a great idea! I have a love and passion for climbing, but i have seen that not many young kids in my generation have that same passion. I have talked with many young climbers but us young climbers are definitely the minority. Most of my generation is stuck behind the computer and xbox. Now i know i am guilty of that to but i have realized that the world we live in is a lot more interesting then any video game could ever be. And i want to show kids that.

So i have decided to do a documentary on a 2 week climbing trip i have planned for this summer. Me and a buddy are going to climb- Mt. Shasta, Mt. Whitney and the South Sister in the shortest amount of days possible! I plan on filming the whole trip to show people the beauty of the mountains. But also i want to get interviews from local climbers, big and small name people. I plan on trying to contact people that are world known and people that are weekend hikers, to tell there story and why they do what they do.

This is months away, but i am looking forward to this! I want to spread my love of this great sport with people. When the time comes i will be asking some of you guys if you could help me (interviews, climbing with us, maybe even funds...etc). I hope you guys can get excited with me on this because this is a big deal!

Thank you for your time, and happy climbing :)

Bradley Green



EDIT- If i could get email or phone number (or both) of everyone interested in helping support this, weather its interviews, funds, etc...msg me with your info! im puting together a list of people to contact when filming starts! thanks for your support!

My only suggestion would be to NOT try to climb these mountains in the shortest time possible. I am defintely not one you'd want to interview, I haven't climbed much of anything yet. But what I've seen from SPers on this site, making it a race isn't part of their agendas. Maybe I'm wrong but that's my take. I hope some of these guys help you & your project though, sounds very cool.

utilize facebook. i added conrad anker and a whole bunch of famous climbing folks this last year, and while preparing for my alaska trip i was AMAZED at how willing folks like that were to email and even chat about projects and lines we were considering.

jay kerr (SP handle alpinista61) would be an AWESOME resource and person to interview. he was/is a classic cascade climber who pulled off one of the biggest romps through denali natl park ever recorded and is one of my personal heros. he PM'd me here on this site at length about the stuff we were planning on climbing (and he had this awesome "go for the gold, man!!!" attitude about it).

check his stuff out:

sweet thank you! i will definitely contact him!! And maybe making it a race is not something that a lot of people do but its something we really want to try to do! most likly it will take 9-11 days cause of driving! Were not trying to break records or anything just want to see what we can do. This trip was planned long before i decided to do this so the trip os staying haha :)

Hey bdizzle, I see you are attending Northgate State, or that's what we called it in High School. I have a couple of friends with whom I have climbed since they were 13 and 15 years old. One is now traveling the world making a skiing film and the other is one of the best alpinists in America. Their names are Aidan and Colin Haley and I am sure they would be happy to chat with you. I think they would be interesting folks to talk too because of Aidan's film making experience and they have bone done some really amazing climbs. They can also give you some perspective on being a young climber.I dunno about interviews since they are usually in some far flung location but I would be happy to make an introduction and tell them about the project you are working on.

Also, I live in Issaquah, just a short drive from Bellevue College. I'd be happy to do some climbing with you guys sometime. Do you climb at Index often? You list your home town as Sultan, just a short ways from there.

If you are interested send me a PM or email me at bighurtbob@hotmail.com.

Take care,

EB
