Why do we climb?

by nattfodd » Mon Mar 15, 2010 11:12 pm

I made a 4 minutes video of my climbing and mountain photography, to be shown at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival last weekend. It won the first prize (Arc'teryx goodies, yay), and I thought people in here might enjoy it too:


Why do we climb?


Edit: humpf, can't embed video in the forums. Here is a link, then.

Re-edit: it's now got its very own custom object, feel free to vote it to the frontpage. :)

What a great video!! You should submit to SP as a trip log and add some text to the photos and give details of your project. Outstanding job!

I like it. Perhaps you can embed it in a comment to FHN's Why Do You Climb page or even embed it into a custom object.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow. That's great. Superb images. Will it remain on the site? I would like to include a link to it in the custom object "Why We Do It".

Glad you guys like it! I created a custom page for it: http://www.summitpost.org/custom-object ... limb-.html

@tigerlilly: hah yes, I'm still up for the grab. :)

@AOwen: I'm still working on it. Deadline for the text is September 1st, so a reasonable guess would be for it to hit the bookstores next winter.

@sarah: I added a link in the comments of that page.

@Mark: yes, it's going to stay both on vimeo and on my webpage, so feel free to link to any of those.

Natford,.... If that won first place I'd love to see what made second and third, since they could still be absolutely incredible since your's was amazing!!!

@CClaude: they were also great, by photographers Adam Long and Robbie Shone. Unfortunately, I don't think that their slideshows are online, though.
