Mountains in Motion now available online!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that our time-lapse short Mountains In Motion: The Canadian Rockies is now available for all to see! After a few months on the festival circuit, the team decided it was time for all to view and enjoy.

We hope you enjoy it. If you share our passion for the Canadian Rockies we think you will. If you have never been here we hope the film will make you want to come and check out our mountain paradise.

The project has been a challenging one at times, but overall extremely rewarding. It’s been a great two-year ride.

Still, it remains a formidable sight, its black, crumbling rock rising sheerly at the…
