The Rock Climber

  • Overview

    Just a few miles outside of Batesville, Arkansas, lies Jamestown Crag — a natural paradise for expert rock climber Matt Rodgers. Stillness, silence, and endless challenges lure Matt to Jamestown’s immense boulders, which comprise more than 90 different climbing routes.

    Editors will need to piece together shots of the three climbing routes that were filmed (two 80-foot vertices and one immense boulder). Because the footage is taken from various attempts, the editor’s task is to make viewers feel as though they are watching one, two, or three cohesive and continuous climbs. Editors will also need to intercut Matt’s climbing with shots of fingers, feet, and scenery to remove the spots where Matt flounders and falls. Finally, there is one multi-cam interview that serves as the project’s main narrative.

    This project is tough — that’s why we've given it the same rating as Matt’s preferred climbing routes: Experts Only!
