Documentary Films

In 2013-2014 we produced our first feature length documentary called The Rider and the Wolf. It’s the story of a Mountain Bike Hall of Fame cyclist who went missing without a trace in Colorado. Working with a skeleton crew, we shot this film in 4K on the Red Epic-X camera which allowed us to capture the huge essence of the American West and slow the mountain bike ride scenes down into slow motion magic. We anticipate releasing this film on the festival circuit in 2015.

We’ve also created short form films, sort of mini documentaries, for Outside Television and some of the top mountain and environmental film festivals in North America – Telluride Mountainfilm, Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, Banff Mountainfilm, Crested Butte Film Festival, etc.

Services Grit and Thistle Film offers to documentary film projects: Field Producing, Line Producing, Locations, Scouting, DP (Red Epic, Sony FS700 and soon Sony FS7, Canon HDSLR, Canon EOS C systems), 2nd Camera, AC, Professional and Creative Writing.
