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

I'm an adventurer, filmmaker and photographer, originally from Cumbria in Northern England.

After graduating from the University of Birmingham in 2005 with a degree in Media, Culture & Society, I became a qualified ski instructor; going on to teach in resorts in Austria, Canada, Dubai, Italy and New Zealand.

In 2008 I traded in my skis to work for a top 20 UK independent PR agency in London, where I was based for 8.5 years before founding my own media and events business Holmlands in 2016.

Holmlands combines my passion for adventure, with my experience working in the media - helping to raise the profile of brands and athletes through providing effective media solutions including public relations, video production, photography, social media management and media training services.

The first thing I ever did with Holmlands was host a ski film screening in London - and having since held more than 40 ski film premieres in the UK, Europe and North America for major international production companies - there was a natural progression for Holmlands to start producing our own narrative content in the outdoor adventure space; which I direct, film, edit and produce - working both independently and in collaboration with others.

My personal journey in photography started by picking up my parents point and shoot camera on family holidays when I was small, and as a teenager, I would spend my lunch breaks developing my own photographs in the dark room at school.

Through my media work, I have directed numerous shoots for a wide variety of client projects over the years and began to re-discover my passion for being behind the lens in the new digital age.

I feel most at home in cold, harsh mountain environments; and together with my skis, my camera has been a vehicle for me to express my creativity, explore the world and meet some wonderful people along the way.

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.
