In 2011, I worked at the Easter Seals camp in Squamish BC and fell in love with nature. For many others as well, The Howe Sound is a place where people have transformative experiences with nature: first overnight camps, seeing the stars for the first time, learning how to climb, paddle, and ski. I've always been fascinated by the Sound and the opportunity to tell a story about the magic of the place.
In just a couple weeks, our group will be taking a trip to the headwaters of the Howe Sound, where the water begins and documenting our multi-day ski trip to Mt. Elaho. Our film explores the question of 'why we recreate' and we hope to find our answer by exploring the stories of how water impacts our characters.
