FEEL THE BURN
As longtime burners Dom and I had wanted for years to create some sort of film about Burning Man, it's just too visually rich not to be attracted to it as filmmakers. The opportunity came in 2016 when we received a commission through Outside Television to make a 10-minute film covering the Burning Man Ultra Marathon. Ultramarathon you say! Yes, in the middle of the dust, wind, searing heat, and hedonistic temptation that surrounds it over 200 people decide to run a 50K race. Clothing optional!
The film also toured the adventure film circuit playing at 5 Point Film Festival, DC Adventure Fest, Breckenridge Film Festival, Vancouver Mountain Film Festival, and many more. Winning Best Running Film at SHAFF film festival in the UK.
