Of Souls + Water: 'The Nomad'

Here's a beautiful short by the folks at Forge Motion Pictures about Erik Boomer, who recently skied and kayaked 1,500 miles around Ellesmere Island.

The Nomad is the first short in a series called Of Souls + Water. Here's what director Skip Armstrong had to say about the next episode on Denver's Westword Blog.

The next character in the series is Melody Shapiro, an avid sea kayaker who is 67 years old. I wanted the perspective of somebody with some more life experience, somebody in the later half of their life, looking both backward and forward, while also living in the moment. The Mother will be released online next month, on May 28.

To follow the series, stay tuned to the NRS Vimeo page.
