For The Love - Making of

I remember it pretty clearly. It was a combination of two great loves. In early 2014, I had really found my directing and cinematic vibe that I knew I wanted to pursue, but I didn’t want to wait for a project to fully explore themes that I wanted to try out.

It was August 2012 and Kimball, a Bozeman physical therapist and accomplished ultra runner, had her sights squarely set on establishing the fastest known time on Vermont’s famed Long Trail.

Behind-the-scenes of La Triple Corona

La Triple Corona is the story about one of Mexico's toughest endurance challenges, a grueling three-race series around La Malinche Mountain, also know as Matlalcueitl, an inactive volcano in the South-eastern states of Tlaxcala and Puebla. Tasked with filming this incredible story in 2014, local production company Encinta was enlisted by the series's race sponsors, Alta Vertical, to capture the emotion and allure of not only the 3 races themselves, but also the majestic beauty of the region where it is staged and the integral characters that weave their story together.
