The Honeymoon Is Over | 2017

Director's Statement

The Honeymoon is Over was my first adventure film. Starting out, I had no idea I was going to make an entire filmed short. I had asked Madaleine if I could film her working on this route as a way for me to learn how to shoot rock climbing. I had no idea that the project would turn into what it has become. I remember the first time rappelling down the face of the Diamond after a 4 hour hike, 13,800 feet high, 1200 feet above the ground, I had the feeling that I had discovered a type of filmmaking that I could see myself doing for a very long time. Here were the crossroads of technique, physically labour, and art. I had a huge smile on my face.
