Adventure Video of the Week: Into the Mind

How deep can an action-packed adventure movie get? A new bar has been set, at least for teaser video and text.

Blur the lines between dream state and reality, as you perceive the world through the minds of many. Into the Mind contemplates the experiences passed between mentors and peers to paint a philosophical portrait of human kind. What drives us to overcome challenge? How do we justify risk? What forces are at the core of a mountain addiction? Unique athlete segments over a multitude of mountain sport genres depict the connectivity of Earth, and window into never seen before moments. Explore how we begin our perception of self, construct the foundations of confidence, and are ultimately led up the path of self-actualization.

As Buddha once said, “The mind is everything. What you think you become.”

Into the Mind is about becoming.

 This week, Sherpas Cinema, the makers of All.I.Can, just released the above psychedelic dollop so audiences could get a taste of Into the Mind, their new feature film set to debut in the fall of 2013. The ambitious new flick asks a number of big questions, and will go to some of the most recognizable names in the adventure sports world to find answers, including skier J.P. Auclair, climber Jimmy Chin, snowboarder Xavier de Le Rue, and kayaker Rush Sturges.

After trying to wrap my head around the teaser—at least that's my excuse for spending an afternoon watching and rewatching the video and reading and rereading the text—I called up and emailed co-directors Dave Mossop and Eric Crosland to find out more.
