Rowan Spear-Bulmer of RSBStudios has produced this video of West Penwithian (Cornwall) bouldering spot, Godrevy. The video short uses masks to display Rowan bouldering whilst walking by himself and ‘Journeying’ through the bouldering area. Rowan comments below:
“My original plan for this project was to create something surreal with lots of simultaneous instances of myself bouldering at Godrevy. I got a fraction of the way through the shoot before I found most of the photogenic boulder problems turned out to be soaked through in that classic Godrevy way. I had that disappointing feeling when you go home empty handed. However it felt like the footage that I did shoot held a sort of story about travelling to cool places for climbing. Sometimes it’s worth rescuing projects gone wrong.”
Rowan/ RSBStudios has previously produced other bouldering videos such as “South of the Border”. It fetures Dan Turner (from north of the border) climbing several hard problems , first established by local activist Tom Newberry, at Tintagel North and Hartland.
RSBStudios have confirmed that they will be filming the legendary Neon Bloc event at The Barn Climbing Centre in February.
