Private Project

Crazy Possible

Crazy Possible invites viewers to journey along with a couple as they leave jobs and routines behind and seek answers on America's Continental Divide Trail. From the dramatic peaks of Montana’s Glacier National Park to the surreal deserts of New Mexico, the pair confront painful ascents, snowstorms, doubts and profound disagreements - and at least one bear – all in an attempt to reboot their lives.

Director Statement

Crazy Possible began for me as an experiment. I wanted to see how my approach to filmmaking changed when I became less precious about its production and allowed myself to walk into the woods without a shot list or crew, and just document. Working first in rough segments that I edited quickly while travelling, I returned home having found what I was seeking: inspiration. Edited as a 5-part mini-series, episodes are intentionally kept short honoring the freedom I found editing quickly while travelling. Post-production remained pretty bare-boned, though we were thrilled to be able to bring on composers and illustrators to compliment the unadorned cinematography. The result is my most light-hearted yet brutally honest project to date.
