On April 15, 2012, I set out on a mission. I was feeling discouraged by the lack of feedback in the world of writing. We live in a fast-paced culture where editors are often too busy to include us in their editing process, and in which readers often consume without providing any response, whether they are tight on time or just don’t think of it. So, I set out to provide feedback to other writers for 52 weeks. What did I learn?
I have collaborated again with the Mountains in Motion team on another short film, Eye of the Beholder (a Staff Pick on Vimeo!). Featuring an array of scenes from the North American landscape, this short film encourages the viewer to shed previous conceptions and ideas about the world, and return to a place of wonderment and awe.
Shot on location in the High Sierra Nevada, Canadian Rockies and Southern Appalachians.
The film text was inspired by my five-month-old daughter, Mistaya, and the work of Eckhart Tolle in “A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.”
After two and a half years as Editor of Highline Magazine, the mountain culture magazine here in the Canadian Rockies, life has called me onto new adventures! Many of you know that I welcomed a daughter to the world back in March 2013. With my new responsibility of mamahood, as well as some other exciting opportunities with my writing, I knew I needed to make a change.
I am excited to announce that after keeping Mountains in Motion: The Canadian Rockies in the shadows for festival screenings over the last 6 months, the film is now available online for all to view! Thanks to everyone who made this film possible, and to the various festivals that have helped us bring the film to the big screen. I welcome you to view the film below and find out more about this film project here.
