Before director Janssen Powers moved to New York City from the Pacific Northwest, he set out to capture the PNW in all of its glory with producer McKinzey Powers. The duo stripped their gear kit to the bare essentials so they could explore and shoot in remote, challenging locations. The resulting cinematic aesthetic is nothing short of superb, set to a John Muir quote, narrated by none other than mountaineering legend Lou Whittaker.
