1. Before becoming a video producer, I was a raft guide on the Arkansas River, outside of Canon City Colorado, for 7 summers. I manage to make it down every season for a weekend or two to visit old friends, swim in the cool river, and shoot some high water video footage.

    After a great winter, the Ark was once again flowing high. It's terrifying being a river guide on a boat full of customers who aren't the best paddlers, while floating into a large class 4 rapid. The heart starts pounding with fear.

    Three Rocks Rapid, on the stretch of river just above the Royal Gorge, is a spectator favorite. Dozens of travelers along Highway 50 stop along side the roadway to watch the rafts battle this mean section. Some succeed, others get spanked.

    Watch Into the Mind Teaser 2: vimeo.com/75775481

    From the makers of All.I.Can comes the new feature film: INTO THE MIND. Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.

    As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
    Into The Mind is about becoming.
