I’ve been occupied with working on the video this week, so haven’t been able to post.
Here’s an update:
Funding: We have exceeded our goal of $8,000, with $8,215 raised so far. There is still time to contribute — additional funds will be used to develop our communication strategy for the video so we can get it in the hands of everyone who needs to see it. If you can, please contribute. Deadline is tomorrow, Friday, June 27.
Today’s activities. We had an amazing day of shooting today. We began with a flyover of the region. Taking off from Columbus at 6:30, we followed the Stillwater all the way to the Mine, then headed south along the Rosebud, then east along Rock Creek to Red Lodge and then Bridger and the Clark’s Fork. We had beautiful sunshine and no turbulence whatsoever, allowing us to get some wonderful video.
Our pilot’s expert narrative gave us insight into geology and the importance of water to sustaining the region. We’re also considering putting the entire flyover video and narrative online for you to view. I think you’ll find it as exciting as we did.
After returning to Columbus we drove to Red Lodge and went up to the summit of the Cooke City Highway, then back down to Red Lodge, on to Absarokee and back up the Stillwater.
We also completed two interviews.
Tomorrow we’ll be in Bridger and Red Lodge doing interviews and shooting B roll.
We’re grateful for your support, and as a reward, here’s a treat from Lynn Peterson, our videographer — some clips from today’s shooting.
