The Northern Sky // Britton Caillouette October 15 2014
I guess you could say it is sort of a myth that Britton and I work together on Half Hitch Goods. My husband and by default, silent partner (Britton Caillouette) is my photographer for most of what you see on our Journal here and he certainly offers daily help, opinions and support with the business. But Britton is actually also a film director. Here is his most recent release that I thought might get us all ready to ride the mountains this winter. The short film is called The Northern Sky. It is described as "...An intimate, raw and unique look inside the mind of snowboarder, shaper, and surfer, Taro Tamai. It’s a movie that snowboarders, surfers, and anyone with a work ethic alike can enjoy and appreciate."
Brit is known for his intimate portraiture and documentary style approach to filmmaking. He made a critically acclaimed film called Sliding Liberia, a few years ago with Nicholai Lidow. The film is nearly impossible to obtain a hard copy of, but if you can view, is amazing. He's always stewing on many creative ideas but currently is working as a commercial director signed with Farm League. It seems odd to post this about him, maybe boastful and not humble. But sometimes I'm so proud of his beautiful work that it seems so selfish not to share it. Known for going to the belly of the beast, to deep parts of the world that are rarely photographed, it seems most relevant to explore his work today in light of all of the war, disease and unease that the world is facing at the moment.
From our family to yours, enjoy!
