Wyoming Catholic College
When we first were talking to Wyoming Catholic College about producing videos for them we knew we had big shoes to fill. In 2011 Grassroots Films, an awesome New York based production house, produced a film for them of epic proportion (with crazy helicopter shots and all), it was all about where they had come from and where they were going. While talking to them about this project we really saw how great the school is now, and there was a lot more to say than where they came from or where they were going. So we suggested that we bring the camera out of the sky and up close and personal. We wanted to portray what it meant to be a student at this amazing college,we wanted viewers to get to know all the amazing people involved, we knew we needed to make something visceral and personal; and they were excited to see what we could do.
So we packed up our bags, flew out to Lander, Wyoming and spent the next week interviewing the 30+ staff and faculty members, climbing mountains (at one point I was 40 ft. up a cliff with a camera in my hands leaning over trying to get close up shots on the mountain, not bad for a Louisiana boy), caving, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. We really fell in love with WCC, and with Lander, Wyoming. We knew that it was really important to help them show the world who they were, and we feel that we did just that.
