Elements 2

Pete Murray is back making a few more vids of Scottish climbing and bouldering, this time with the mighty HD camera in tow. We'll be producing a spin-off series of 'How To' films that illustrate the techniques to solve Scotland's top 50 or so boulder problems, 'condensing the story of these classic lines into a simple, concise story which reflects the intensity and brevity of the movement itself' (Pete's words). The HD vid of 'Gorilla' at Dumbarton Rock can be viewed on his Vimeo site.

To be honest I agree, Elements was absolutly dire. I felt embarassed watching it! Everyone I've spoke to also thought it was bad. One example: using two camera's to film the same problem, maybe film the problem twice from different angles?? Wouldn't normally comment, but felt very pissed off after spending 15 quid on it!!!

please send any comments to the filmmaker Pete Murray, I'm sure he'll be glad to take on board any criticism. he does have a new camera so quality of footage should be better. The Alistair McIntosh angle might not have been everyone's cup of tea, but it was an attempt to approach bouldering from a different angle philosphically, rather than the usual techno and close-ups of howling sendees...
