The Revelstoke Diaries

Holmlands are proud to present "The Revelstoke Diaries" - as we go behind the scenes of the ski town of Revelstoke in British Columbia, Canada.

Nestled in the heart of British Columbia, Revelstoke was originally founded in the 1880s when the Canadian Pacific Railway was built in the area - where the railroad still plays an integral part of the township.

Renowned for it's high annual snowfall, the development of Revelstoke Mountain Resort in 2007, has since transformed the small town into a global mecca for adventurers.

A traditional and hardworking mountain town, with stunning natural scenery all around and endless outdoor activities, The Revelstoke Diaries focuses on the people that make the place.

We speak with Canadians who reflect different aspects of mountain life - and are proud to call Revelstoke their home - seeing how the community is united by their own passion for adventure and love for the great outdoors.

Taking a different perspective to traditional ski films; we speak with a local train diver, professional adventurers and environmental activists, a retiree, an entrepreneur, musicians, an artist, a police officer, a night groomer and more...

Featuring, Chris Pawlitsky, Greg Hill, Izzy Lynch, Bill Pollock, Kelsey Adam, Mark Baron, Shred Kelly, Leah Allison, Faron Ling, Kristy Whale and Gnorm the Powder Gnome.

Director Biography - Cameron Hall

As Founder of Holmlands, I work with brands and athletes that share in our passions, to significantly raise their profile and reach new audiences, through delivering effective and creative media campaigns that have depth, meaning and purpose. We specialise in storytelling inspired by adventure, offering public relations, event management, video production, photography, social media and media training services - combining my experiences working in the snowsport industry and the media.

Holmlands also operate our own events series; where I work closely with major international production companies and host bespoke film screenings about outdoor life and worldwide adventures, in addition to hosting live music events aligned with the adventure sports industry. I am involved in everything from event planning and social media marketing to ticketing and hosting of events, with a proven track record of generating sell out crowds - both in the UK and internationally.

Our events offer brands a unique opportunity to combine our media consultancy services with sponsorship and advertising, through which clients can directly target their core markets.

We create our own content, where I direct, edit and produce films, with a particular interest in inspirational human interest stories. I also write for a number of outdoor adventure publications.

Director Statement

The Revelstoke Diaries is born from the idea of creating a ski film that isn't about skiing - going behind the scenes of a ski town and getting to know the people that make the place.

The people we speak to are all Canadian citizens living and working in Revelstoke - personifying different aspects of mountain life.

The Revelstoke Diaries aims to encapsulate the essence of life in this stunning and remote adventure paradise through the gaze of the local.

The film is also complimented by a nine episode web series - featuring extended interviews with each film project participant.
