Hi guys!

I am putting together a documentary of the colorado trail this sumer. The film is titled "500 to Attainment" and is going to follow myself and a couple other thru hikers on the CT. Not only is it going to follow the hike but its also going to give a history of the CT, towns along the way, historic landmarks, ect. I am very excited about this project and it so far has been getting alot of attention. If you want to learn more on it visit the facebook page below.

With that said, I noticed alot of people plan to hike the CT this summer. Right now I am looking for an extra hand to help make this film a reality. I already acquired two camermen who will hike with us. Just seeing if there is any interest in being part of this exciting film!

well very cool. I have a bunch of questions for you. What are you guys shooting on? Im assuming is either really small cameras or even the 5D or 7D due to the fact that everything weighs soo much. I am actually a grip/electrician in the industry. I am not sure if your looking for a PA or what. I just got into hiking myself so a 500 mile trek might be a bit much for a first timer but you never know. I will check out the FB page but any info you have would be greatly appreciated. Also if I cant do it I know a bunch of people that may also be interested.

also a couple go pro cameras could be great.

Yea i am not 100% clear on what camera yet but it will be smaller! excuse my lack of abbreviatins but PA?

Since your just getting in! I would say do your homework and get lightweight gear. My mistake was buying really heavy gear and had to buy a whole new set of gear because it was to heavy.

Just a pointer from my mistakes;)

A few of us are starting from the Durango end on July 1st and going to Section 15 only by July 18th. Hope to catch you just about there.

GOOD LUCK! I'll buy the video.

BTW, my son-in-law does transfers from film to digital IF you'e actually using film. GOOGLE "Cinelicious". He's in Hollywood - yeah actually. Though your project is small, if you want him to do it I think I can nag him into it. His rates are quite reasonable compared to the other post-production studios. And his state-of-the-art equipment surpasses all the other studios
