Further On Up the Road: 2010 Epic Summer Film

For anyone who wasn't able to make it out to Sugarhouse Park last weekend, here is my submission for the 2010 Epic Summer Film Festival, "Further On Up the Road:"

Unlike my previous Epic Summer submissions, I didn't go for the mockumentary this time. This piece is more an attempt to tie together the different interests I was pursuing over the summer, and pull out some kind of common theme. Near as I can tell, the common theme was Rock and Roll. From the band I played in to the bands I photographed to the road trips I took, music seemed to play a dominant role in the experience, much more so than humor, anyway.

A number of people thought I should have identified all the locations in the photos and video clips in the film. Since I didn't, I'll list some of them below:

  • Arches National Park
  • Canyonlands National Park
  • Seattle, Washington
  • The Jimi Hendrix Memorial, Washington
  • Sturgis, South Dakota
  • Devils Tower National Monument, Wyoming
  • Mount Rushmore National Monument, South Dakota
  • Cody, Wyoming
  • Quake Lake, Montana
  • Antelope Island, Utah
  • The Layton City Amphitheater
  • The Bountiful Days of '47 Parade
  • Yellowstone National Park

If anyone has a specific question about any of the images or clips, feel free to leave a comment.
