Dealing with Patagonia

The inspiration for Around Patagonia was inspired many years ago by Wolf and I making a point of exploring wild and exotic mountains together on an at least yearly basis.  Just as much about the adventure, Around Patagonia is about our friendship. Words by Jason Schlarb | Photos © Schlarb-Wolf Productions Patagonia has been on our minds and a dream location for both of us for decades.  Torres del Paine and the mountains surrounding El Chalten showcase some of the most beautiful mountainous terrain in the region. Having a lot of options for maintained, runnable trails also made Torres del Paine…

Film making 101: Take advice from a 12 year old

For those of us who run, the daily run becomes an important ritual.  For some of us it is how we wake up the body and commune with nature.  When you run first thing in the morning (or for whatever reason you get up early) you pack in a whole bunch of experiences that seem like you are getting two days out of one.  In the film I wanted to capture this feeling and to give non-runners a sense of what you can do with a little extra time in the morning.  Words and photos by Steven Gnam I also…

The making of Finding Traction

A good friend of mine from film school, Rick Smith, met Nikki in an airport, and she mentioned her plans to spend four and a half days attempting to break a speed record on America's oldest hiking trail, the 273-mile Long Trail in Vermont. We heard about this and thought, ‘what an incredible feat that she is going after.’ There is something really captivating about someone who has the drive to go after something that many people might consider to be absolutely impossible. Words by director Jaime Jacobsen | Photos © Partnership Productions Not long after, in early 2011, I…

For The Love - Making of

I remember it pretty clearly. It was a combination of two great loves. In early 2014, I had really found my directing and cinematic vibe that I knew I wanted to pursue, but I didn’t want to wait for a project to fully explore themes that I wanted to try out. So I thought, I should just make a film on something that I love. And at that moment trail running was ( and still is ) a great love of mine. I had seen some amazing films on it, yet I hadn’t heard someone speak about it in the…

Chasing Bernd | The making of Why We Run

photo | The African Attachment Words by Director Dean Leslie. Documentary filming is quite unique in that it allows you intimate access into people, places and communities all over the world. The time spent filming with Bernd in his log cabin in the woods of Western Maine was one of those experiences for which I feel really privileged to have had. It was thought provoking and enriching and Bernd's approach to living has directly influenced me, in how I wish to spend whatever time I have left here on earth. I first read of Bernd Heinrich in 2010 whilst doing…

Kimball's quest to conquer Long Trail subject of new film

Originally featured on the Bozeman Daily Chronicle | written by Jon Maletz The blisters began forming on her feet after a mere 50 miles. It was a most unexpected and frustrating development, particularly when considering the challenge Nikki Kimball was confronting: navigating a distance of more than 10 consecutive marathons plus twice the elevation gain of Mount Everest — and all in about 4 ½ days. It was August 2012 and Kimball, a Bozeman physical therapist and accomplished ultra runner, had her sights squarely set on establishing the fastest known time on Vermont’s famed Long Trail.
