Mining Powder

Screen Shot 2013-03-17 at 3.04.37 AMVimeo continues to lead with innovative, beautiful films. Youtube may be the ancestral home of early web cam videos, but Vimeo has taken the lead in quality. A key example, is Mining Powder. Not your ordinary Youtube video.. Enjoy. Get the sense of what it’s like in deep powder! Amazing. R-for language.

“During the winter of 2011, my brother Neil and I were presented with a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were to spend two months embedded in the heart of the Kootenays at the legendary Retallack Lodge. The mission was to shred pow with our good friend Tanner, who was on his comeback, and to help film Retallack:The Movie for Inspired Media Concepts. I took the role of the dedicated time lapse junkie, while Neil was a true on slope camera master. This video is a showcase of our skills behind the camera, as well as a few of our favorite long lens shots from Retallack:The Movie. Time lapses make way for deep powder mining, and a trip into the heart of the “silvery slocan” to see how silver miners conquered the mountains a century ago”
