  2. Episode V - THE ELDER
    At 68, Rob Elliot has guided 200+ trips on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado river in Arizona.

    How do you want to be remembered, when this life joins the wind?
    What did you leave, in these chasms, upon these lives, young & curious?
    What did you write? What dust in the rain, sand in the rivers?

    Those you touched, embraced and kissed, loved... what echoes there?
    How will it travel, your wisdom, your story, your suffering and joy?

    These walls, silent, deafening, ancient and new.
    What did you make them, what did they make of you?
    A life running, teaching or learning, what is escape?
    What did you find?

    Wind, replenishing rain, sun.
    Who did these thorns see?
    What did these waters wash from you?
    The stars, in the abyss beyond, how did they shine, on you?

    Will you release the storm, the scars, whirling as they go, yet holding love, life?
    The luminous child, the harsh knowing of age, what did you leave behind?

  3. Grand Canyon : Blink of Time is a time lapse film featuring the stunning views of the Grand Canyon. Blink of Time brings the viewer on a journey around and into the canyon. Over 80,000 photos were taken over the course of 7 weeks in April, May, and June of 2012 to make this film. During the production we were able to capture the solar eclipse that took place on May 20, 2012. You may also notice there are two shots that are not from the Grand Canyon both are of Horseshoe Bend. We felt it was appropriate to include these shots into the film because the colorado river is a main staple of the Grand Canyon. This is GOTM Films first time lapse passion project and was funded entirely by us. Our goal was to show the scope of the Grand Canyon to those who haven’t had the fortune of visiting this natural wonder. Using time lapse allows the viewer a glimpse into the Blink of Time we spent making this film. The film features the original song "Don't Waste" from Figgy and a free download of the song is available at http://facebook.com/FiggyMusic

  4. The Grand Canyon is an immense place, almost unfathomable in scale, and one of the last places in the American West to be explored. John Wesley Powell called it the "Great Unknown," having no idea what rapids, falls, or canyons awaited him on his first descent of the river in 1869. In the decades since, the Canyon has been a playground for dozens of explorers. River runners, backpackers, routefinders, lithic hunters, and peakbaggers have all laid claim to the Canyon's iconic landmarks, often seeking out the prestigious "firsts." While many significant points of interest were being explored, there was one feature that was left almost entirely ignored: the Canyon's innumerable technical slots.

    Deep within this vast wilderness are secret and intimate tributaries rarely visited by man, hiding some of the Canyon's most remarkable features. The barrier to entry is steep. To explore them, one must have a knowledge of backpacking, packrafting, rappeling, anchor building, and off-trail navigation. The Last of the Great Unknown is the story of these slots, the canyoneers who systematically explored their drainages, and the secrets hidden deep within their walls.

    The film will premiere the last week of April, 2012. Check the official website for updates!
