New River Rendezvous

I got to The New River Gorge on Wednesday. The rain has been coming and going and we were able to find dry rock. Jordan Shipman got a new crane to film like the big boys and the footage looks incredible...

I jacked up my ankle on a sport route, go figure...

The people are rolling in and the event kicks off this evening in full effect.

Hopefully the rain holds out until late Saturday and the comps happen as scheduled. Nate is going to do the Squeal Project.

Abby Smith sent me a press release for the 2009 Real Rock Film Tour:

The 2009 REEL ROCK Film Tour, presented by Sender Films and Big UP Productions is now accepting submissions for the 2009 REEL ROCK FILMMAKING COMPETITION. If you have a camera, computer, and a fresh idea, one of the short REEL ROCK ‘09 films could be yours!

Building on the popularity of the 2008 filmmaking competition — in which tens of thousands of people voted for their favorite Humor/Spoof and Action/Adventure films — the 2009 competition has expanded with new rules and new prizes.

Winning filmmakers will receive $500 in cash and rake in grand prize packages from title sponsors Windstopper and The North Face, gear sponsors Petzl Equipment and Sterling Ropes, and media sponsors Climbing Magazine and Urban Climber. The winning films, one from each genre category — as chosen by voters online and REEL ROCK judges — will be featured on the 2009 REEL ROCK Film Tour in over 100 locations worldwide.

Submission deadline is July 20, 2009
