The Mountain Project

SHOT BYCharlie Stover, Sharon Stover, H Pitschmann, Jessica Pitschmann, Christie Bigelow, Abby Swanson

DIRECTORCharlie Stover



This entire project was recorded and filmed in 48 hours. The cameras used were mainly three Canon C100s with a few shots from a Canon 6D. Everything was lit naturally or with camping lanterns and a Litepanels Sola ENG Flight kit. This project took place in the United States near Silverton, Colorado. Traveling by Jeep to an abandoned mining camp at an elevation of 12,000 feet, we had no running water or a reliable source of power (power was generated by solar panels). At night when we were recording, we used a portable car battery connected to an inverter to power the Litepanels and the tube preamp that was used to record the artists. Everything else was powered with the devices own battery. This was purely a creative project with no objective other than to capture and tell a story. Please enjoy!

Great work, great location, very well executed, beautiful music and beautiful content. Thanks for this.
I enjoyed watching this, the way it is filmed and graded, hearing about very unique people and their unique way of seeing things.
The drama didn’t carry me all the way through, would have wished for a little more creativity in editing / intercutting of the different segments and possibly a little shorter. Also for me less focus pulling and movement during interviews and more justified moves and focus pulls would add depth to your next project in my opinion. Static camera would have worked for me in the interview situations for example.
Hope you don’t mind the critique. I was truly happy finding this and enjoyed watching it overall. Keep doing your great stuff, it was unique, felt I was there a little.
