Fw'd from a friend who's trying to wrap up a pretty cool project.
Check out the trailer!
Hello, I would like to ask for your help.
Over the last two winters I shot a documentary about Ski Patrol & Search and Rescue teams with the help of 14 talented filmmakers in Montana. The project has turned out as an amazing visual compellation of the life and science behind backcountry snow safety.

Across the West, there had been 13 avalanche deaths this season as of Feb. 16, and with the boom in backcountry winter sports there is a critical need in avalanche safety training. We hope our film covers much of the needed training and equipment needed to venture off the beaten path all while being visually breathtaking enough to entertain all generations of snow adventures.
The film is called Snow Guardians and I have started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds to complete the project. Shooting a documentary for HD broadcast TV is very expensive. I have been very lucky to have the amazing support of some very talented filmmakers and film equipment makers to film the project.
We are in the process of editing over 3.5 Terabytes of HD footage that captured the lifestyle and visual beauty that draws people the rustic mountain lifestyle. The cost to pay editors, visual effects specialists and to license music will be over $22,000 alone. We have already incurred over $33,000 in expenses to shoot much of the film. Your donation is critical to help us complete the project.
Kickstarter operates on an all-or-nothing funding model where projects must be fully funded or no money changes hands. Even a $10 dollar donation can greatly help.
This is a Collaborative Film! For only a few dollars you can get your name in the film credits! We also have two executive producer slots available (email me)
