So I'm going to pick up LK's Walking With Freedom tomorrow at Campmor but I'm wondering if there are any AT movies available to watch online to help scratch this itch. I've watched nearly everything AT related on YouTube and Vimeo. Any suggestions? :-?

Something along these lines but for the AT.

Try Google Video, lots of interesting stuff under an 'Appalachian Trail' search.

Those videos just don't do the A.T. justice though. There might be one out there but I've yet to find it. I'd like to find a good movie/doc or something about A.T.

Nothing in HD? Just random clips on YouTube.

Someone needs to do this properly, maybe I'll do it.

Wife and I were walking around Pen Mar this weekend and there was a crew filming there...We laugh cause one of the hikers was this blond, hair perfect, getting makeup on, low cut top and the line we heard her say was the water is over there pointing to the a railroad tracks. So maybe in a year you'll will be able to watch that b-movie :)

Yes, yes, yes. The made in england one is awesome, done in HD.

Also, there's a great one on the PCT available for free called "Walking the West"

Someone do one of these for the AT!

I saw that one a few years back; did not realize it was avail for free. Coolio!
http://www.walkingthewest.com/

Come on all you AT hikers...the other two trails have high quality, 1hr or so docs online. Where are yours? :p
(Note: The online ones are generally lower res. You usually have to procure the higher quality DVD to see it full screen mode in good resolution)

I watched Trek last night. It was very good. Once I watch these types of video (Appalchian Impressions, Southbounders, etc.), I get this little voice inside of me that says, "Stop watching and get outside." I paused Trek about 3 or 4 times and went out for walks. It took me almost 3 hrs to complete the video. I got Springer Fever in June!!

I've got Appalachian Impressions, 5 Million Steps and TREK all on DVD here at the house.... I like to watch them on Thursday nights and then get out on the weekends.... Watched them in a marathon watching session right before a 1 week trip... Really does put me in the correct frame of mind.

On a side note, one of the reasons that you might not see them online is because the creators won't release the rights to put them online....

Randy

And I fully understand where they are coming from. If I spent the time, money, and energy documenting a thru hike, I think I'd have a hard time releasing it to the public domain. But if your goal is to share your film and get it in front of as many people as you can, some type of delivery method (paid or free) on the web is the route you must take.

When I was on the trail last year crewing for Speedgoat, a camera crew from National Geographic was at the ATC in Harper's Ferry the same time we were there. They interviewed him that night and the next morning... video cameras, pro equipment, the whole 9 yards. They were making an episode for their show "America's Wild Spaces". The episode was called "Appalachian Trail".

http://channel.nationalgeographic.com/series/americas-wild-spaces/all/Overview

I hadn't heard anything about it for a while, but last month I had a friend of a friend say that they saw a completed 50 minute documentary at the Nat Geo HQ... said it came out really well. Despite all of this, I cannot find anything else on the internet about when this will be released. If you have ever seen any episdoes of "America's Wild Spaces", you know they do a good job :)

It's not exactly a movie, but I bet it would be really cool!

Edit: FWIW, I just found something on it:

I saw that movie a couple of months ago in DC at a premiere reception. I think it is called "Wild Spaces: Appalachian Trail", or something pretty close to that. It is REALLY good. At the reception, they said it will be shown on the Nat Geo Channel sometime in the 4th quarter of '09. I believe it will also be shown at the AT Biennial in Vermont later this month. Try to catch it if you can.

Yes, 4th quarter of 2009. First week in October is what I am hearing. I am in the beginning of the film. I help them through Georgia. Shooting with these guys was a blast and they really care about the finished product.

I was at the premiere screening in DC in May and the aerials are unbelievable. Great little short documentary. The aerial shots are worth watching the movie alone. The producer Brian Armstrong told me they had enough footage to do 105 to 115 minutes easily but they just weren't allowed to make it that long. I'd loved to have seen 2 or 3 hours of edited film on the trail for sure.

There not movies but alot of AT trips on You Tube, I have watched several of them. Actually most trails have at least one or two You Tubes going on.

Sooo....

I am futzing around with my NetFlix account, and what do I see on streaming video? Southbounders (http://www.southbounders.com/). Perhaps the only fictional movie about thru-hiking.

So if any of you have a Netflix account, you can rent it or even just watch it on your laptop.

Is it any good? I give it 3 starts out of 5 myself. It's OK, some parts are good, some parts are "meh". But, probably worth viewing once. :)

Tudor
08-07-2009, 00:31
Mags,

I have Southbounders as well. Not too shabby considering it's not a Hollywood topic and shot with a real low budget. FWIW, I really enjoy it, if even just for the music and the scene at Shaw's! Love that place!

Three stars is a "not too shabby" grade.

It ain't bad and it is enjoyable...but it ain't Clerks (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109445/) (another low budget movie financed on
a shoestring)

I have never seen Five Million Steps. Is that a good one?

It's vintage (which I like). 75 minutes long. It is a documentary of interviews with thru-hikers along the trail and in hostels.

I'd say for an AT enthusiast, it's pretty good.

I would have to agree with Rainman, I saw that a few months ago. It was kind of hokey, but all in all, really good for those of us really into the trail-much better than a movie simply labeled as Appalachian Trail which just talked about touristy things in VA, WV, TN & KY.

Lillian, thanks for the "second" on my movie comments/review. And just so you know, I love your signature/tag line! As the father of daughters, I agree with you wholeheartedly. We even need to stop calling female teams "Lady this" and "Lady that," as if the male teams are the "real" ones and the female teams are somehow pretend, or add-ons.

I think the AT community does a great job of treating all hikers similarly, based on their hiking abilities and accomplishments.

P.S. Just FYI, there is a "Rainman" on WB, but he's not me. I'm Rain Man. Just so there's no confusion. Don't want to besmearch him with my radical ideas of equality. LOL

11-08-2009, 19:21
No. Bulldawg, that's not remotely what I said and you really need to stop jumping on every single thing I say here, which you seem to be doing a lot lately. The act is getting old.

My comments were self-explanatory, and truth be told, most of this website is for folks interested in long-distance backpacking.

Sorry you just noticed.

No, not all A.T. films need to be about thru-hikers. (Duh). And I never said such a thing. All I said was that in terms of the long-distance hiker's perspective, I'm not sure the definitive film has been made yet.

Others are, of course, welcome to disagree.

Bulldawg
11-08-2009, 19:36
Um, no, Jack it's not an act. I'm sorry if you feel that way, I just happen to disagree with you and I am not willing to worship at the altar of Jack. This site is not only geared towards long distance backpacking. In fact I happen to read a lot more about folks out for a weekend, a week, or maybe a month long setion hike more so than a thru hike here. How is it any different if I hike 200-300 miles a year or if I thru hike in a year? Time out in the woods is time out in the woods, right? Being a thru hiker does not make anyone any more of a hiker than anything else does. It is these thru hiker's with a sense of entitlement that have caused a lot of the problems in towns up the trail, like your beloved Hanover isn't it? I have nothing against thru hikers in general, but I am against that attitude that a lot of them have towards those of us who have not completed the entire trail in one year. Not all thru hikers are this way, but a great many are. And like I said genrally, but with a different wording this time, I bet if the ATC were to accept donations from ONLY long distance backpackers, it would have long ago went the way of Enron.

Jack Tarlin
11-08-2009, 19:43
Um, Bulldawg, no one is asking you to worship anywhere, so calm yourself.

But the fact is, while there is indeed a section here for section hikers (and that's great!!) most of the traffic here at Whiteblaze is aimed at (and is contributed by) people doing longer hikers on the Trail, including thru-hikes.

This in no way denigrates or stigmatizes the people that are interested in shorter hikes, but the simple truth is that most of the folks that hang out here aren't weekenders.

Geez, can't believe I'm arguing something this stupid.

Hike where you like folks, and like where you hike and I'm sorry some folks are overly sensitive.

wow. im actualy gonna have something relevent to misspell. putting my best spelling cap on. i am offended. first, miss janet knows more about where to get online free at movies than most. unfortunatly shes wbless at the moment. spoke with her last night and we had good talk. second, i worship at the alter of jack. whats it to anyone? i concider jack a peice of hikeing equiptment im allowed to use. he scouts ahead of me preparing towns and cooking all manner of reception foods for my pees.sorry. peeps. he makes bad guys fade away at drunken hiker events. and jacks soul comforts me while i sleep. sorry. snor.but the number one thing jack does related to the topic? provide a good backrest pillow while enjoying popcorn and an AT movie. can we please mention lion kings movies, the only AT movies with humor? he can help us. as far as buying five million steps, i did. i bought all the movies they ever sold at neel gap back when gary and nancy or whatever their names were ran it. i was sorry i paid so much cause the only honorable thing to do with such a movie is to pass them on. so one year i found a hiker who was thruhiking the following year and exspressed an intrest in the movies, so i gave them to him. like 3 long good ones. and i asked him to pass them on. i belive AT movies are like reference books, read em, and share em. they cant be watched more than once a season or you can trigger a springer feaver reaction. and the main point i would like to make now, and i feel strongly about this, jack has allready raised and been raised for raising,.....their has never been this,........

hollywood alots a billion dollars
famouse actors actualy hike
crew , truck and wire and lense and light and boom and gaff all come to the trail enmass
no exspence is spared
a full length feature film is produced
the films goal is to make money and be entertaining,.....but,,......
an unexspected thing happens
a movement
a huge movement
the film shows folks looseing weight, getting off insulin, being happy
people begin hiking the trail for health
masses of folks need less doctoring than ever
nationwide medical costs drop
the world nicknames america the land of hikers
america sores to the top of the most healthy country list
scores of movies are produced
worldwide hikeing increses as healthcare costs plumit
new technologies alow the dissabled to hike
the age range of hikers swings to include the just born and the ancient(jb)lol(just born)
baltimore jack tarlin and matthewski become fabuluslu whelthy selling AT tip sheets
and folks who used to curse jack wanna hike with him and eat his spice bag and fondle his meats. they are tender. hes the best trail cook outside of trail angel marys imagination we got. oh, and one more thing, when im the next piccoso im haveing a golden jack made. sorry god.

Yea, That was me I guess. Between you and me I never saw the camera (hidden in the darkness of the shelter). I figured them inquisitive tourist. Until I signed the waver that is. Solid little Doc though.

When on a long distance hike, I often feel like a Lord of the Rings character.

"Flip Flop Flippin" was filmed last year on the AT. and is available at www.squatchfilms.com It gives you a real good look at a few of the people out there, and he used some of my music in the soundtrack :)

Load the appalachian trail onto your google earth, then in layers (the sidebar) double click gallery then check the check box for youtube. You will see plenty of A.T vids near there locations on the great Appalachian Trail. If you dont have the A.T on google earth you can get it from http://www.appalachiantrail.org/about-the-trail/mapping-gis-data/appalachian-trail-gis-gps-data

I got my copy of Flip Flop Flippin last week. Fun movie, it focused mostly on the people that hiked the trail, and it was a cool change from a lot of other movies in that it wasn't just a diary style documentary of a thru hike.

I also just finished up watching the Walkumentary (http://www.thewalkumentary.com/) which is a cool look at hiking the CDT.


Both movies feature a few of the more famous/infamous members of whiteblaze.

I just watched Walk North. It was an interesting documentary of a few buddies doing a thru of the AT. The sound was a little off, and it was clearly amateur but they really get into how they are feeling and it follows just these three people. Unlike most documentaries where it's just sporadic interviews of people at different points of the trail you get to see each step.

I don't really put my video, "Really Livin", out there for free.
But I do have parts of it on shorter youtube videos.
Here are some of them to whet your appetite:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJq_Src2BpA
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWCUotJb8YY

Here is another 3 min (fun) clip that I made when playing around with some of my files:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEPxDtepd_8

And I do put my entire Nepal video on there. (the first half is more about getting ready to do the hike, with permits, shots, etc. The 2nd half is of the most scenic Himalaya): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W75etSBkrng

Enjoy!

ps. working on one now from my most recent Australia trip.

ps. working on one now from my most recent Australia trip.Wow, Fiddlehead thanks so much for posting those, just finished watching your Nepal trek and summit of Dhampus with great views of the notable 8000 metes peaks Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu. Of particular note I enjoyed the market place with it's colorful spice trade, the fella playing a three string bow draw instrument, 2 dollar rooms, making tea and bread, and just the overall beauty and comradere you all seemd to have....oh and the sound tracks were awesome, (think that's you playing in some of them, is it not? the CDT video) Thanks again for posting, it was really enjoyable to watch, and beautifully produced.

Yeah, schedules are necessary for planning but shouldn't be adhered to too closely IMO.
So burn them when you start the walk is my theory.

So, yeah, I just finished editing a fun video of our Aussie trip (kid stuff) and remembered how much fun editing video can be and how creative you can get.
Slow motion is a fun tool.
I just wish I had shot more video to work with.
No hiking in this one, so I won't link it.
I probably have some more hiking stuff out there.
There's our Pyrenees hike, but it's mostly slides, we didn't have a video camera back in the '90s.
Now, everyone has one, aye

Oh, and here's another one from the Triple Crown One Year video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKs_u-7Pzx4

By the way, when you see the Triple Crown videos of mine, I always tried to put the 2 letter abbreviation for each state in the bottom corner of each scene, so you know where that scene came from.
The AT clips are the minority though. Hard to compete with PCT and CDT for scenery shots.

A piece of advice, unless you are into childish drama stay away from "Beauty Beneath the Dirt".
