1. The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world...

    ...so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it's unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.

  2. NEW TRAILER IS NOW AT vimeo.com/ondemand/snowguardians

    Snow Guardians is an immensely visual documentary on the life and work of Ski Patrol at several Rocky Mountain Ski Resorts as well as the Search and Rescue teams that respond to winter emergencies in the backcountry. The goal will be to capture the hard work and passion of Ski Patrol and snow science experts as they work in challenging, dangerous, yet beautiful locations.

    Much of the above trailer was shot durring the last winter season and the beginning of this season. This year has been one of the worst avalanche winters in recent history already claiming 8 lives in the Western United States. We critically need your help to complete the filming and interviews of people effected by these avalanches, and to edit, grade, buy music rights and to finish post production.

    The expanded interest in the backcountry has resulted in a growing number of adventurers seeking enjoyment outside a ski resort. The imperfect science of avalanche study and prediction may be the only thing standing in the way of life and death for a growing number of backcountry adventurers. The film will also be a highly educational yet gripping story to help educate people traveling into the backcountry on the science and skills needed to survive.

    We are on our second season shooting a documentary about Ski Patrol & Search and Rescue teams with the help of 14 talented filmmakers in Montana. Across the West, there had been 13 avalanche deaths this season as of Feb. 16, and with the boom in backcountry winter sports there is a critical need in avalanche safety training. Our film will provide a much needed overview of the training and equipment needed to venture off the beaten path all while being visually breathtaking enough to entertain all generations of snow adventures.

    Because of the heavy avalanche year we are filming interviews of survivors and their rescuers and are in the process of editing over 3.5 Terabytes of HD footage that captured the lifestyle and visual beauty that draws people the rustic mountain lifestyle. The cost to pay editors, visual effects specialists and to license music will be over $22,000 alone.

    We were lucky to keep our operating costs down because of the amazing donation of time by our super talented film crew. Now we need your help to contribute. Due to the donation of time you will find this is one of the lowest costing Kickstarter campaign for a HD broadcast quality film.

    The project has turned out as an amazing visual compilation of the life and science behind backcountry snow safety. We hope that it will not only be great to watch but provide needed education on backcountry safety to save lives. Now its time for you to help, your contribution is critical to help us complete the project.

  3. Nikon D4 Release Video

    It's here! The Nikon D4 has arrived and it is a freaking HOT camera! For the past months I have been working in silence with an amazingly talented crew and three of the best athletes on the planet producing my short D4 launch film "WHY". It was like Christmas morning when Nikon called and described the new camera and all of its incredible features. All I could think was that this is the camera we have been waiting for. Then the gift of all gifts... "Corey, dream up a film that you would like to shoot. You pick the topic. You pick the location. It's your film... only requirement is you show off the features of the new camera." My favorite quote from the call was "You have a blank white canvas and it's up to you to fill it". I had to pinch myself several times to confirm that the call was real. Everyone involved has been tight lipped about the project for months and today we can finally begin to share some of the assets and get fired up about the camera!!!

    I have always been facinated by those people that are the best at what they do. Those that operate on the edge; scientists, artists, musicians, athletes, etc. Always the question that I find myself asking is "WHY"? What deep inside drives them? What does the world look like through their eyes? Those that live on the edge, push the envelope, redefine sports and industries operate in a space all to themselves. In my Nikon D4 launch film I wanted to visually portray the beauty and intensity of the athletes doing what they do best while also delving into their heads and answering the question "WHY"? There was a very simple list of criteria used when selecting the athletes for this film. 1. They needed to be the best in the world at what they do. 2. They needed to be true role modes / heros. (In short, no ego and just simply fantastic people). Dane, Rebecca and Alex fulfill the requirements in spades!

    As it seems to be with many shoots, the schedule for WHY was INSANE! In just 13 days we went from Veracruz, Mexico to Moab, Utah to Joshua Tree, California. With a fantastic crew of eight amazingly talented people, three of the worlds best athletes, over 20 pieces of luggage, three D4 prototypes, an rc helicopter and enough RedBull and ClifBars to keep us awake and moving, the entire journey was epic! Huge days, little sleep, lost bags, crashed helicopter (the D4 lived), speeding tickets (talked our way out of both ;-), wicked mosquito bites, flu, and a trip to the urgent care - all the prerequisites for a great shoot. Just the way I like it!

    Special thanks to everyone that helped on this production! Dane Henry, Shawn Corrigan, Rex Lint, Mike Hagadorn; you guys are studs! Blaine Deutsch and Marina Rich, thank you for keeping us all on track, organized, fed and looking good (and Marina, thanks for loving me and being the best wife in the world). Gen Umei, Soichi Hayashi, Jason Jenkins and Mike Corrado; thank you for the opportunity! Dane Jackson, Alex Honnold and Rebecca Rusch, you guys really made the film and answered the question WHY!!! Tommy Thompson and Chris McNamara; thanks for keeping us safe and getting me into the coolest camera positions possible! Amazing team and thank you everyone who helped!

    When it is all said and done by far the most exciting part is the future. It's about the collective creativity and vision of the photo and video community and what we will all create when we get a D4 in our hands. One thing is for certain, WHY was just the tip of the iceberg!
