What would it be?
- Hilarious 3-minute video on O-fashion?
- 56-minute magnum epic with sweeping vistas and a low-voiced silky smooth narrator? (self-nominate)
- Mid-length "action-sports" film with people from North Van wearing flannel shirts and living out of vans giving strangely angled interviews on being one with nature and the feeling of absolute freedom?
My background is of course theatre, not films. But I remember a couple of years ago asking the host of the Best of Banff if they had ever had an Orienteering film and the answer was negative. Thus, couldn't hurt to try. I bet the Hubmann Brothers ones would be good enough. Same with Tero's Follow-Me.
I think with drones and GPS tracking, a 20 minute training one would be great.
Actually, something on Ski Fashion on its own would be great.
To improve your chances even more, feature female orienteers. The Banff Festival is always looking for more films by and about adventurous women.
I think you are better off just making a video in the foothills and mountains around Canmore with some of the people that are attending Nationals this summer. Just look for really awesome vistas and forests and then get video of people running (effortlessly) through the woods like the Hubmann videos do.
A new Hubmann brothers video was released a few weeks ago....
Yep, that Hubmann movie is as good as a lot of Best of Banff stuff. All that's missing is baked snowboarders and flexing paddlers whose shirts are chafing them....
This would be something O clubs could do with a chunk of money rather than say making their 27th map.
