Experiencing adventure is an important part of life for all people. The filmmakers explore what adventure means by talking to guides, adventurers, and those that have obstacles to getting outside. This documentary short explores what adventure means to Ed, a paraplegic, as he has the chance to kayak and cross-country ski after years of feeling limited by his disability. Ed and his wife, Patricia, shares how important getting outside together has been to their relationship.
The film uses striking visuals from mountaineering, rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, cross-country skiing, adventures across Oregon and Washington. The story is told through the voices of adventure guides, trip participants, and especially, Ed and Patricia. These voices combine to give a full picture of what adventure means, and how important it is for human life.
This film was shot in locations across the Northwest United States, including; Mt. Rainer and the Cascades; Columbia and Willamette River; Mt. Hood and surrounding regions; and Portland, Oregon.
Using Canon DSLRs and a GoPro Hero3 Black allowed the filmmakers to capture all of this footage with just a two man crew. The primary footage was shot on Canon 5D Mark II cameras with additional footage from a Canon 60D. The slow motion and underwater clips were captured with a GoPro Hero3 Black.
