Race to Alaska
"The inside passage to Alaska has been paddled by native canoes since time immemorial, sailing craft for centuries, and after someone found gold in the Klondike the route was jammed with steamboats full of prospectors elbowing each other out of the way for the promise of fortune.
It’s in the spirit of tradition, exploration, and the lawless self-reliance of the gold rush that Race to Alaska was born. R2AK is the first of its kind and North America’s longest human and wind powered race. There is only 2 rules, no engine allowed and no support.
It’s like the Iditarod, on a boat, with a chance of drowning, being run down by a freighter, or eaten by a grizzly bear.
There are squalls, killer whales, tidal currents that run upwards of 20 miles an hour, and some of the most beautiful scenery on god’s green earth."
We liked that proposition: a small environmental footprint and a levelling of the playing field where nature is your force as well as your demise.
One video a day was produced for the entire duration of the race. Shooting, editing and post—everything in less than 24h. Everyday.
A zephyr/yeti production.
Zanskar is a remote kingdom in the northwest Indian Himalaya, where local people are snow-bound for six months of the year. About 10,000 Zanskaris live in the isolated valley. In winter, mountain passes are blocked, the summer Jeep road closes and buses stop. Two decades ago, three friends founded a ski school, to enable winter transportation in the valley, improve quality of life, and to encourage young people to stay in Zanskar by promoting a culture of mountain sports. In 2015, the friends decide to expand the reach of the school, a proven success so far, to a neighboring town. Along the way they ponder a bigger question - how can Zanskar's wilderness be preserved while providing local people with employment and a motivation to stay? It is only a matter of time before the winter road is completed, and the "Big India" rushes in.
