    Default Tell it on the Mountain

    This semi-legendary PCT documentary is finished..almost 10 yrs later.

    http://tellitonthemountain.com/

    We saw a very impressive clip of it at 2003 ADZPCTKO

    Watching the clips again makes me really want to get out there again.

    The website has been showing it will be done in the next 3 months since at least 2007. It was kind of like an urban myth that it even existed. I long ago gave up on it ever being finished and released. I remember seeing a cut of it at the 2009 ADZPCTKO and thinking it had a lot of potential.

    Let me know if anyone actually receives a copy when they order and I'll likely order it.

    Dare I say it is actually done?

    FWIW, they also started a Twitter account promoting it.

    But yes, it has been vaporware for about a decade now. :O

    My gut feeling say it is real if they are all of sudden actively promoting and premiering it in about a month.

    Hello friends.

    Producing and editing Tell it on the Mountain has been a very time consuming passion project. This journey from idea to final edit has been much like a thru hike, with injuries, distractions and real life getting in the way... However... We're at the terminus. We signed the journal, we're ready to show you the pictures from our adventure.

    We're premiering the film next week in San Francisco (invite only at this time) and screening a pre-premiere Thursday night, February 7th in Oneonta, NY (open to the public) at 7pm at the Red Dragon Theater.

    More screenings to be announced soon.

    DVD's will begin shipping at the end of the month. (They're being replicated as I type this)

    QiWiz, Caveman, imscotty - Thank you for your patience. We hope you truly enjoy the film. Would love to chat with you after you get the DVD's and have a chance to watch the film.

    Stay tuned for the new website, Facebook page and some new video snippets we'll be releasing around the web.

    More to come in the next month or so... soon. Really.

    OK, I've waited for six years (SIX YEARS!) since ordering in February, 2007 and it's now well over a month since the post above was written. No DVD in my mailbox yet. TIOTM website now says DVDs will be shipping in late March. Deja vu all over again. Overpromise, underdeliver.

    I'm glad Mags has actually seen it. Gives me a tiny bit of hope.

    I would pay double to see a few hours of unedited Scott Williamson footage, but this will have to do in the meantime.

    Hello All, Just got my copy of "Tell it on the Mountain" in the mail. It is real, it is out. Actually, to make up for the long wait, they sent me two copies! I will post a review as soon as I have a chance to watch it.

    Looking forward to this. Glad to see Scott Williamson is in it. Loved the story Backpacker did on his yoyo hike of the trail.

    BTW, Scott mentioned in his Trailcast interview (in a very diplomatic way) that the article purposely mischaracterized his motivations and was intentionally exaggerated for effect, especially the part about the death of Kenny being the sole source of motivation for completing his Yo-Yo. Donna Saufley, one of Scott's close friends and an incredible PCT trail angel, also mentioned that the said article is the reason why he avoids giving interviews now. I dunno, I'm not exactly too knowledgeable about Scott's life, but taking a story about an incredible, almost unimaginable, achievement and testament to human will and reducing it to a bunch of romanticized platitudes about his personal life seems very shameful and unprofessional to me. The one thing I am sure of is that the author of the article is a total cock.

    Interesting. That's a shame because it was so well written.

    Anyways, downloading the movie right now which should take about 2 weeks with my sow internet.
