Fifty | Trail Running Film

On September 1, 2021 we uploaded our short trail running film to YouTube. Thanks to the popularity of trail and ultra running, the film continues to gain traction around the globe. According to YouTube analytics, the majority of views are coming from United States followed by United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Germany. We’re also getting some great feedback from runners of all skill levels.

“Very inspirational, makes me want to go out run in the mountains immediately! Thanks for sharing, I really like the storytelling :)” – DerRunn3r

Trail running in the mountains can be difficult but proper training and preparation makes all the difference. Fifty is not about the fastest runner or about overcoming challenges. It’s about setting a goal and seeing it through. The film also celebrates the historic trail over the Cascades.

Fifty features interviews with Gary Robbins, endurance athlete and coach; Louise Blais, human kinetics professor; and Andrew Dingwall, Mighty Quail 100 km race coordinator and athlete. Fifty also features endurance runner Matt Fortuna who finished third in the 2017 Fat Dog 120 (29:06:10).

Fifty Film Trailer

Fifty is a short film about a long run. The documentary follows an amateur runner (Erick Thompson) as he tackles his first ultra marathon in the mountains. The 50-mile (80km) course runs along an ancient Indigenous pathway and is part of the historic HBC fur brigade route. In 2017, Mountain Madness, the organizers of the Fat Dog 120, created the Brigade Trail Race along this route. The race was on hiatus in 2019 when we shot the documentary, so we recruited some friends to set up aid stations. They also crewed the film. The trail crew included Chris Stenberg, Jon Wilson, Richard Sullivan, Wells Gaetz, Brandyn Steele, Grant Stevely and Tarynn Liv Parker.

Matt Fortuna joined the run and helped ensure the success of the project. We also had valuable coaching advice from Louise Blais, Andrew Dingwall, Gary Robbins and Eric Carter. Thank you to our stellar crew and supporters for making this project possible. Special thanks to Similkameen Valley Planning Society, Mike Stohler and HümaFifty is an official selection of the Toronto Short Film Festival. The film will be online later in 2020.

RDOS Emergency Operations Centre

2018 Spring Freshet

Since April 2018, we’ve been providing communications services for the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen based in Penticton, BC. The main focus of our work has been in the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC). This video was created during the 2018 spring freshet. It features former RDOS emergency program coordinator Paul Edmonds discussing response measures. Aerial footage was provided by Hummingbird Drones. As a result of our work with the RDOS EOC, we were asked to create a short video series for Boundary Flood Recovery in Grand Forks, BC. Both projects are examples of how ET2media is working with local governments to share important and timely information.

From The Dark Water

We’re proud to share our new video featuring Dubh Glass Distillery in Oliver, BC. This project was a pleasure to work on. Not only did we get a behind the scenes look at what goes into making craft spirits, we also saw the passion Grant Stevely has for his art. Stevely is a student of the industry. He has travelled across Canada and the United States attending workshops on both distilling and distillery operations. As you’ll see in the video, Stevely loves to talk about whisky and complex quality spirits. Enjoy.
