"There is an undeniable magic in alpenglow, the final seconds of a day's light that give mountains impossible texture and life before falling into shadow. Stephan Drake, Forrest Shearer and Johan Jonsson go in search of big lines in Haines, Alaska."
About Sweetgrass Productions
Our films are based in this knowledge that there is more to a mountain than fresh snow and a big line; there are stories to be told. Whether in the living room of a 92 year-old miner or playing toys with an athletes 3 year-old son, it's about connecting with people who may not share your language or culture. Thanks for watching, thanks for visiting, thanks for supporting. Read more...
Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis.
–Patagonia's Mission Statement http://www.patagonia.com
Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing – as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
Our values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted. The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.
For us at Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. We donate our time, services and at least 1% of our sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide. Read more...
