Watch "Shattered" a Short Film Featuring Patagonia Ambassador Steve House
by Tyler Stableford
You've no doubt seen Tyler Stableford's name many times in the Patagonia catalog – his iconic photos have graced the pages for years. Today, we're excited to share Tyler's new video project featuring Patagonia ambassador Steve House. Enjoy the film and a three-part behind-the-scenes series after the jump.
We are excited to premiere our new short film Shattered online this week. The 5-minute film, shot with the new Canon EOS-1D X camera, is live on Vimeo and Canon's Digital Learning Center along with three behind-the-scenes features.
Shattered holds a special place in my heart, as it is a co-creation with the legendary alpinist and writer Steve House. After achieving one of his dream summits, Steve found himself bereft, searching for deeper meaning in his life. Shattered shares a window into his inner journey.
Steve is heralded in the climbing world for his minimalist approach to climbing, and our filming style echoed this sparsity. We set our intentions on creating a visual poem, a short film sculpted to its ethereal essence.
This film wouldn't have been possible without the trust and support of Canon. It is rare in the commercial world to have the opportunity to create a personal project, and I am so thankful to have the support of a company that encourages artistry.
Sincere gratitude to the folks at Canon, Steve House, Kate Rolston, Draper White, Dave Wruck, Ben Thomas, Matt Van Biene, Hayden Kennedy, Anson Fogel and Paul Frantzich.
