IS Film Video Teases El Cap
Adventure video company IS Film Video has posted a great looking teaser video for one of their upcoming films entitled El Cap, which, as you can probably guess, deals with climbing El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
The film isn't just about climbing the world's most famous big wall however, as it focuses on a man named Michael Kozusko, who has attempted to scale El Cap twice before, once in 2006 and again in 2007, and failed both times. But, he is determined to reach the top, and if he does so, he'll become the oldest man to ever solo the wall. According to the trailer, he's going back to give it another shot in October of this year, and this film will follow that attempt.
You can watch view the trailer for El Cap by clicking here. What you'll get is a tantalizing look at the film, which is being made by film makers Dave and Mary Davis. The images in the teaser are beautifully shot, and the video clip does exactly what it is suppose to do, which is to tease us into wanting more. I know I'm already wondering if Michael can finally get over the hump and finish his solo climb of El Cap or will the mountain stop him once again, and send him home a defeated man. Can't wait to find out.
