The quality of the video and edit was good but the content was eclipsed to two millennial s that were not worthy of the quest...

We know Dag. He is such a nice man. He is my Dad's friend. He runs from Silver Star Mountain to Vernon and sometimes I've seen him in Armstrong. He is so humble and sweet. A legendary skier and runner in these parts.🇳🇴
Wow I'm glad these film majors got paid for something. Too bad they didn't deserve it
I drink beer and make trails. Big deal

awkward interview
Poetic and inspiring.

Trying way to hard to make it interesting and mysterious when the guy is already interesting enough....not hating on the camera work like it's good cinematics but just story wise it could have been done so much better.
Is this a trailer ?
Hales Rymel
Why are they so dramatic? I'd much rather what a solid 13 mins of him talking, than the 8.5 minutes of drama that this started with.

12:30 can anyone tell me the name of the song please?
