Peter Mortimer - Pro Blog 1There are so many times during the making of a film when it doesn’t feel worth it: waiting out weather on location for weeks on end, spinning wheels during all-nighters in the editing room, watching your cash fly out the door as your forearms get weaker.Josh Lowell - Pro Blog 1A few years ago, when we released our movie Pilgrimage, we did a 12-city screening tour. My brother Brett and I drove around the US with the stars of the movie, Chris Sharma, Katie Brown, and Nate Gold, going from theater to theater and sharing our work with climbers. The screenings were a huge success, but the effort of putting them together was overwhelming, and the driving was way too much (Katie even totalled her car).2008 Reel Rock Film Tour Premiere at the Boulder Theatre - Photo GalleryPhotos courtesy of the - The thousand-seat Boulder Theater was packed to the gills on Wednesday, September 10th, 2008 for the launch of the 2008 REEL ROCK Film Tour and to celebrate the release of the new film, The Sharp End.

After getting a BA (with honors) in geology from Colorado College he decided what he really wanted to do is make movies, so he got an MFA from USC's School of Cinema and Television. Then he set off to produce something about what makes trad climbers tick and and that film became Scary Faces (2000).About WINDSTOPPERGet more from your outdoor experience.
