Endless Spring Day – a ski movie

This is the first backcountry ski video that I have made, and I was fortunate enough to make it with Squamish mountaineer (and boyfriend extraordinaire) Trevor Hunt. What a beautiful place we live and a beautiful sport we do!

Check out the video Endless Spring Day and enjoy.

Spring Update! (a tribute to winter update).

Maybe this posting thing should be a quarterly event, what do you think? 

Spring update, here we go:

1) In January, renowned LA director and photographer Walid Azami asked me to go to Georgia (the Republic Of) to shoot a music video for an artist named Bera. Bera is very famous. His bodyguards take their job very seriously. It was quite the adventure. Enough said. 

2) I went to Turkey and Qatar on a family vacation. 

3) Started mountain biking again, that felt good. Made a small video with Dan Barham to celebrate my return

4) Ski toured a bunch to try and get my fitness back (and because it’s a whole lot of fun). 

5) And finally, in honour of a great winter, I made this. I’m really happy with it. 

There were probably a few other things in there that I did as well. The Eighth Parallel played in a few film festivals. This short I did on running did too. I went to Harvard to start a year-long project with philanthropist Taylor Conroy. Here is the teaser

Ummmmm, that’s all. Time for bike season! Heading to Sea Otter in California tomorrow. You can tell the sun to come out and play now.

Winter Update!

It’s December, and once again I find myself apologizing to the Internet for being so standoffish. Lots has happened in the past few months so I’m going to give the Cole’s notes version of an update. There will be pictures. And the odd video. Done.

1) I got ankle surgery. Thanks, Dr.Boyer, for the new ankle. Hopefully it feels like new soon. See attached picture.

2) I graduated! See attached picture.

3) I went to Rwanda and made THIS. And THIS too for a pretty amazing client that I’m not sure if I deserve.

4) An article about my spring trip to Bolivia was published in New Zealand’s “Spoke Magazine”. You can see some of it HERE.

5) The Eighth Parallel got it’s first magazine review in Coast Mountain Culture and played at a bunch of awesome festivals.

6) I did this edit for an amazing sports foundation called Women Win. Go sports!

7) I bought a house and spent several days orchestrating a timelapse of jello. Check it out on my homepage. See attached picture.

8) I’ve learned that riding a road bike indoors is as boring as I remembered it being.

9) I started shooting for MTV and The Buried Life. Woo!

10) I’ve become addicted to ski touring. Who knew going uphill could be so fun!?! See no attached pictures…too busy skiing.

Merry Christmas and happy trails!

Do YOU live in Boston?

‘Cause I don’t. However, my film, The Eighth Parallel, will be showing at the Women in Action Sports film festival there this Wednesday. Short notice. I know. But hey, it’s my first blog post in months so it’s better than nothing!

In other news, I just had ankle surgery and will be in a cast for 8 weeks + 5 months of rehab. I’ve gotten off without a lot of major injuries during my mountain bike careers so I figure this could be worse. Plus, I still have to edit the film I shot from this trip to Bolivia…among many other edits on my to-do list. Yet still, casts are awful things.

Perhaps this means I’ll be blogging more??? Probably not though…

My first music video!

Ok, it’s my second time working on a music video, but it’s the first music video I’ve fully directed, conceptualized, produced, edited, etc. The video was for LA-based indie rock band Risers and they rock. Both figuratively and literally. The song we shot for, “Can’t Get There From Here” is a shortened down version, but you can listen to all their music on their website.

Got any other friends that need a music video? Let me know!

Thanks to Greg Borkman for helping me out as a 2nd shooter. You can watch the video here: http://vimeo.com/25283348
