    A documentary about a journey to "The Edge of the Earth". The Gates of the Arctic National Park is the northernmost national park in the U.S. (the entirety of the park lies north of the Arctic Circle).There are no established roads, trails, visitor facilities, or campgrounds in the park. Following the Alatna River you will see an amazing place people rarely see, including the amazing Arrigetch Peaks. "For the next two weeks you must survive using the knowledge, skills and gear you bring with you. You will walk or float through intact ecosystems where people have lived with the land for thousands of years. You will experience solitude, self reliance and nature on its own terms. Are you prepared?" Filmed using Solar Power for Two Weeks = 10,000 combined shutter releases and video clips. Below is the link to how I accomplished this and stored all the pictures and video files. Here is a link to the trailer: http://www.vimeo.com/17039896 This is were we stayed in Bettles, AK on the way back: http://www.vimeo.com/19736183 This is the link to the How to on the solar power set-up. http://www.vimeo.com/20173304 My brother took a longer trip, with his girlfriend Monika, on the Noatak River the following year. https://vimeo.com/67932494 Camera: 5D mark II Lenses: EF 28mm F1.8 EF 70-200mm F2.8 EF 400mm F5.6 Music: "Intro" The xx "My Girls" Animal Collective "Sweet Disposition" The Temper Trap "The Road to Nothingness" Solar Fields "Boy With a Coin" Iron & Wine

        ARE YOU READY TO GET INSPIRED? In the winter of 2012/13, RIDE GREENER and COUPDOEIL FILM dared to take the step of making the impossible become possible: they produced the first climate friendly snowboard and ski film. In STEPS, the effects of climate change are shown in parallel with the allure of winter sports. The film pursues the question of whether or not snowboarding and skiing in today’s world can be done in harmony with nature. STEPS, a documentary and action film, dives into the world of people whose deep connection to the mountains ties them together. Worried about impending climate change, they are looking for an alternative way to pursue their passion in harmony with nature and experience the mountains in an ecologically sustainable way. Instead of flying around the world in pursuit of snow, they explore the Alps at their doorstep. They travel using public transportation and climb the highest, most impressive peaks on their own before beginning their spectacular descents and jumps. Despite all of their efforts, they reach their limits and realize the real paradox existing in doing winter sports in harmony with nature.

        • The Ins & Outs Of Finca Bellavista

          The lifestyle of an Ewok was always a dream. Then hearing about a couple who created an off-grid tree house community and wanted to collaborate on some projects... well, the dream began to become reality. Nestled in the jungles of southern Costa Rica, Finca Bellavista is pioneering sustainable development in Central America. Equipped with solar power and hydro power on the near horizon, water harvested from springs and the sky, bio-digesters managing sewage and a plethora of gardens this community is truly doing justice to the word "sustainability". A true inspiration for the unfoldings of how we can cultivate our communities back home. It was an honor to be a part of this community for our month-long stint in la jungla and were posed with an adventurous and challenging project of adapting their " Pointers Sheet " ( which was a stack paper with intricate details on everything one needs to know about a quest down to the Finca) into an entertaining, insightful and comprehensive video. We hope your curiosity brings you to the unknown realms of the jungle, to experience the wonders of living like an Ewok and discover pura vida. Many thanks to Matt and Erica, Finca Bellavista and the beauty of the jungle for catalyzing growth towards authentic expression. www.fincabellavista.com

              this is an observation of what I normally see on my desk, but captured this particular Saturday morning. The song in this video is by Carla Bruni, "quelqu'un m'a dit". I don't understand French, but this song is soothing in so many ways that I had to do something with it :)
