“Aniakchak: a wild love story” - new film online this weekend for your viewing pleasures⁣ ⁣ ⁣ A tale from a time when our knees were full of cartilage, our hearts full of curiosity, and our heads were full of...well, who knows what our heads were full of. Silly ideas apparently⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Over the course of our traverse of the Alaska Peninsula and the making of this film we collectively (along with the help of seventeen types of rain) broke five cameras, popped a boat, ran out of pudding, got mildly lost in the least visited monument in the US park system, capsized a boat, got stalked by a skinny griz, saw a sea eagle, smoked one cigarette, still were out of pudding, started a book club, broke multiple tents, took turns using limbs as tent poles, did not starve to death, and did not ruin our friendships, graham and Shannon’s marriage, or each other’s lives entirely⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Big thanks to dear pals Shannon and Graham for trusting us with their story and letting us go off road thirdwheeling with them in such a spectacular setting @shanmcd8 @grahamzimmerman⁣ ⁣ ⁣ High fives to Tommy for nabbing the 100lb pack award and running safety boat while also doing camera wizardry, to Jim for the initial concept, direction and holding the vision in the edit, Laura for going above and beyond with the illustrations, and Luc for the beta @tommypenick @bedrockfilmworks @jimaikman @laurakottlowski @lucmehl⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Also worth noting our time on wild and scenic rivers is made possible in large part by the hard work of organizations like @americanrivers @americanwhitewater⁣ ⁣ ⁣ And a hearty thank you to @rei and @nrsweb for making this film possible - with additional support from @kokopellipackraft @outdoorresearch @goalzero @expedusa @trailbutter @msr_gear @wernerpaddles
