  2. Excerpt from the documentary on the life of Sigurd F. Olson and the meaning of wilderness. This is a work-in-progress, seeking funding. Olson (1899-1982) was a wilderness writer, canoe guide and conservationist and the title comes from his first book of essays, published in 1956. Olson believed that contact with wilderness was vital to the health of the human spirit. Among his many accomplishments, he was largely responsible for the preservation of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota and played a major role in the creation of the Wilderness Act of 1964.
    Director and cinematographer: Peter Olsen
    16mm, Super-8, DVCPro, and Canon 5D

  4. Our trip in October 2010 gathering footage of the BWCAW for our documentary on Sigurd Olson and the importance of wilderness. Starring Tom Behrens and Mark Stoehr, and... me. Unfortunately. Barely edited, barely color corrected, ridiculously long and boring, and amazingly unentertaining! Shot on a Flip (R.I.P.) and a Canon HF100 palmcorder (with some clips from the 5D of the actual film footage). We had better weather than anyone deserves to have that late in the season. 70-degree afternoons, and nary a cloud in five days. Unfortunately, one extremely windy day early in the trip took down most of the color from the trees.
