Continuing yesterday’s theme of companies sponsoring cool media concepts is the new “Origins” film series brought to us by evolv and Mountain Gear. In collaboration with Sender Films & Big Up they are creating a series of shorts that are “about the new school paying homage to their heroes of the past, exploring climbing’s history, and revisiting some iconic (and iconoclastic) accomplishments of previous generations.”
The first installment follows Chris Lindner and Kurt Smith as Lindner tries to do the first repeat of Smith’s forgotten testpiece Dunce Cap (5.13a) in Joshua Tree, CA. Check it:
Installment #2 will apparently feature Lisa Rands and Peter Croft so that’s something to look forward to.
