Big Sur / Lucia, CA "Words reduce reality to something the human mind can grasp, which isn’t very much. Language consists of five basic sounds produced by the vocal cords. They are the vowels a, e, i, o, u. The other sounds are consonants produced by air pressure: s, f, g, and so forth. Do you believe some combination of such basic sounds could ever explain who you are, or the ultimate purpose of the universe, or even what a tree or stone is in its depth?" - Eckhart Tolle

In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, time-lapse sequences were patiently gathered from exposed summits, by glacial lakes, and under aurora-filled skies. Hours and even months of change lapses in a matter of seconds, providing the viewer with a rare insight into the ever-changing nature of the landscape. Weaving throughout the film are reflections of an early mountaineer, who is deeply moved by his own encounter with the mountains and the revelations of explorers who have come before him. “What is this power that lures me upwards, into the unknown,” he wonders, “that pulls me deeper, despite snow, wind and exhaustion?” Made on a shoestring budget and with entirely volunteer hours, the film brought together artists from two vastly different parts of North America - Banff, Alberta, and Atlanta, Georgia. Strangers at the start, the film team developed strong friendships over the course of production and were united by their common goal of capturing the beauty and essence of a place that inspires them every day. This 100% human-powered film combines advanced time-lapse photography with an original story and musical score to bring the landscape center-stage and offers a thrilling new perspective that re-establishes the Canadian Rockies among the finest mountains in the world.

            There is a small window in the Colorado high country when the trail conditions are perfect. Some would call it fall, but nature is fickle here -- often the warm days of summer push up against the sting of winter. In the high country, cold winds blow and snow dusts the peaks. Lower in the valley, aspens drop their leaves and cover the trails in a vibrant carpet of red, gold, and orange. Motivated by the oncoming threat of winter and the desire for one last chance to ride the state’s best single track, Yeti Ambassadors Michael Larsen, Shawn Neer, and Rudy Unrau hit the road to enjoy Colorado’s peak season. Filmed by: Joey Schusler & Thomas Woodson Edited by: Joey Schusler Sound Design by: Keith White Riders: Michael Larsen, Shawn Neer, & Rudy Unrau. #YetiCycles #YetiTribe #SB6c #SB5c

              On March 17 2012 Jessica and I set out across the country to chase down the colors in our dreams through fields and valleys, around rivers and cities, across mountains and deserts. Over the course of two weeks we covered 5158.3 miles, 17 states, 2 speeding tickets, we drove through a snow storm in the mountains of Wyoming, listened to M83, Appleseed Cast, Feist, Smashing Pumpkins, Tycho, Job for a Cowboy, Colour Revolt and the rest of our iTunes playlist about 20 times, heard Adele on the radio more than we care to remember, ate more gas station food than could ever be healthy, broke into Four Corners National Park and made out at the Four Corners in the pitch black desert night, and learned that the line between man-made and nature is blurrier than we had previously believed.
