Over two decades Paul 'Huffy' Houghoughi has dedicated his life to climbing. With the birth of his second child imminent he decided to try to send his hardest first ascent to date - a low start to a short steep boulder problem. Starting from the footholds would add a couple of extra moves, but adding those moves would take months. This commitment would mean countless hours of training and many days spent away from his wife Portia and their first child Ava. One year later he succeeded - and his journey with the sport was complete.
This is a film about bouldering, but more than that, it's about one man's mindset, motivations and battle to understand what he had dedicated his life to. Sometimes it's about something greater than the route.
Filmed on a BMPCC and Movexoom MOS 10 Super 8 camera using vision 3 50D. The lenses used on the BMPCC include a Helios 44-2, Pentax C mount 14mm and MIR 37mm.
