Just finished a short film on a recent expedition to Mt. Pisco in Peru.  The film follows a group of ordinary people who have decided to climb a mountain.  We just released this trailer and hope to have the film accepted in the 2013 Banff Mountain Film Festival.  The film is called "Ordinary Mountaineers".  This is our first film... would love to get any feedback on the trailer.  Thanks!

This looks really cool. Watching Ueli Steck isn't nearly as inspiring as watching regular people climb.  It gives me more motivation to keep climbing.

Everything these people said seriously resonated with me and sounded like things I have thought or said.  I hope this movie is really successful and I'd love to see the full length film. 

How can I see it?

Thanks for the feedback. The film itself is probably 90% complete. We are hoping it can debut at the Banff festival this fall. That would be the world premiere. I will keep this thread updated over the next few months as there are new developments.

Looks pretty good. I am most certainly interested in seeing the finished product for sure.

By the way, I like the use of Stranglehold in the background(Sweaty Teddy Nugent. ;)

Good stuff.

Thanks for your comments denis and Rick.  We are excited about the film and thought others might find it interesting as well.

Nice work! I'd like to see more.

I think this film appeals to everyone because ordinary folks will think,"if that were me, how would I handle this issue?" While regular climbers are thinking, "Wow these guys know nothing, I'd totally do this... and this..."

You've got me hooked.
