1. There's not much better than taking a multi-day road trip under the big skies of Texas to film the state's iconic sites and sounds. So we were pretty excited to partner with the good folks at Sherry Matthews Advocacy Marketing and the Texas Department of Transportation in order to educate the public about some simple steps to keep those Texas skies clean while reducing emissions.

    We all have a responsibility to make an effort to better our environment; learn more about what you can do to help keep the skies of Texas clean at drivecleantexas.org.

  2. Ice climber David Roetzel is the first person to free solo every major ice formation in Colorado's famed East Vail. This involved climbing more than 1,000 feet of ice in a single day without fall protection.

    "In most sports, you can funnel adrenaline into the sport itself. In ice climbing, however, you must stand their motionless and calmly accept it." - David Roetzel

    Ultralite Films partnered with David Roetzel to create a film about his philosophy as a free solo ice climber (climbing without the use of fall protection) and to explore why someone would undertake such an extreme level of risk. What we learned is it has little to do with public recognition or fame; however, it is about learning to control one's mind under extreme duress. Meticulous planning and countless hours of training blend into a feat achieved by few in a medium of art unknown to most.

  4. "Are our experiences born from the drifting of our imagination? Some say we possess a compass within ourselves that eventually points us in the direction we needed to go all along. But the most difficult step in that journey is the first one that simply takes us outside the door."

    From the fall of 2015 throughout summer the following year, the Ultralite Films crew trekked hundreds of miles, swam a myriad of rivers, and slept under countless stars in order to try and capture the essence of Texas outdoors and more specifically the experiences available through the Texas state park system.

    All footage in this video was shot at various state parks and natural areas, transcending several seasons. Please use the key below to learn which parks are displayed in the video, so you can discover your own adventure.
