    An open-pit mining boom is underway in northern British Columbia, Canada. The massive size and location of the mines--at the headwaters of major salmon rivers that flow across the border into Alaska--has Alaskans concerned over pollution risks posed to their multi-billion dollar fishing and tourism industries. These concerns were heightened with the Aug 4, 2014 catastrophic tailings dam failure at nearby Mt. Polley Mine in B.C.'s Fraser River watershed.

      Footage I shot in South East Alaska outside of Sitka. It was a pretty long hike with the gear but took roughly 7 hours to finish the hike. It was filmed on the Sony V1U. Motion shots are with a custom built slider rig. This footage will be used in the full documentary film about Alaska Wilderness. Keep posted for more! Music by Sigur Ros

        Walking in Two Worlds is a 63 minute documentary that explores the human and cultural relationship between Native American tribes and their ancestral land in the Tongass, the largest temperate rainforest on earth. Through their people’s eyes and perspectives, the film reveals what the Tlingit and Haida tribes have experienced from elders’ stories in Southeast Alaska. Despite centuries of foreign invasions and occupation by Europeans, Russians and Americans, the tribes have defended their own civilization and recently negotiated a land claims settlement with the government that has brought them both success and strife amid expropriation of their resources in the forest and restricting access to their customary hunting and fishing areas. Yet Walking in Two Worlds shows the strong spiritual and cultural bond celebrated today in the Tlingit language, dance, music, arts, and potlatch ceremonies within their communities of Southeast Alaska. The film also reveals the splendor and diversity of the majestic Tongass forest with its bears, salmon, eagles, wolves, whales and more. Produced and directed by Bo Boudart, Co-produced by Wanda Culp

It is a journey that follows an unusual band of world-renowned guitar-makers — Chris Martin, Bob Taylor and Dave Berryman of Gibson — to the primeval Tongass forest. These guitar-makers are on a desperate mission: to negotiate with Native Americans and change the way a rare rain forest is logged before it’s too late for acoustic guitars. The film begins with the startling revelation that Native American corporations are clear-cutting vast acres of primeval forest. They are logging the largest coastal temperate rainforest in the world and the largest reserve of old growth trees in the USA. If logging doesn’t change, they will run out of the large Sitka Spruce trees used in guitars in less than 10 years time. These Native Americans who’ve notoriously been given a raw deal from the US government are distrustful of the white man telling them what to do. Enter Greenpeace, a radical environmental group, and soon all are battling over a forest that is the last of its kind on the planet. Musicwood upends our simplistic view of indigenous peoples and the past, with a story where it’s often impossible to tell the good guys from the bad. Musicwood is a culture clash of staggering proportions, between Native American loggers, white CEO’s, and the most radical environmental group in the world. The film features exclusive acoustic performances and interviews with guitar players like acoustic virtuoso Kaki King, The Antlers, Yo La Tengo, Steve Earle, Turin Brakes, and Kurt Wagner of Lambchop. Musicwood is a funny, complex and heartbreaking tug-of-war over natural resources and a profound cultural conflict.

                    Anan Creak Alaska in the Tongass national forest is an excellent place to observe wild bears in relative safety. That is because there are two park rangers with guns watching you watching bears. Also if you go and I certainly recommend it dress in layers as at least when we were there it got very cold and damp standing around.
