We are a group of people for whom film is not a choice, its a mandate. We are of the Colorado Mountains. We aim only to connect emotionally with an audience. We defy conventions. We keep the process in house. We keep the team light, fast and agile. We use the best tools. We listen. We find the essence of the brand or subject. And we deliver more. forgemotionpictures.com

Thank you to all the crews, agencies, friends, clients and cast that make our work and lives so deeply satisfying.
The first ever ropeless climb of Yosemite’s sheer 2,000 foot wall of Half Dome. The longest BASE jump achieved, from the infamous Eiger Nordwand. A tragic expedition to the lost peaks of Western China. These are just a few of the amazing feats and personal journeys featured in the First Ascent Box Set.
First Ascent is Sender Films' groundbreaking 6-part series that takes you to the cutting edge of adventure. Produced over two years on five continents, First Ascent follows the greatest climbers to majestic locations around the globe on their quests to redefine what is possible in the mountains.
The First Ascent box set includes the six half hour films of the series, plus more than an hour of bonus footage, with outtakes, behind the scenes, making-of, trailers and additional climbing, high-lining and BASE jumping scenes.
This year, Reel Rock turns five, and co-founders Sender Films and Big Up Productions are celebrating by taking you on a global ride like never before. From death-defying speed link-ups of the wildest faces in the Alps, to Olympian displays of strength and tenacity on the hardest boulders ever climbed, Reel Rock 2010 features a breathtaking journey through the vertical realm with the heroes of rock and snow.
Ines Papert, Jon Walsh and Joshua Lavigne, travel to the northern landscapes of Auyuittuq in Baffin Island. They go looking for adventure and an unclimbed wall on the hidden flanks of Mt. Asgard – what they find leaves them with more questions than answers.
