Making a Movie

This weekend three young film makers, Jake Glass, Matt Stauble and Joe Foster, began shooting a 20 to 30 minute documentary film about the Scotchman Peaks area and our effort to preserve it as Wilderness.

The vision began as a student project, sponsored by Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with a focus on conservation issues. The film makers also hope to create a film that will inspire and inform a wide variety of groups engaged in many issues by demonstrating the impact that a small, dedicated group of concerned citizens can have in their own community.

Guided by Sandy Compton, Jake and Matt spent a long weekend exploring the inner reaches of the Scotchmans in the upper Ross Creek drainage with our “extreme Plein Air” artists. Meanwhile, on Sunday Joe and I climbed Scotchman Peak on Sunday to interview hikers as well as the most famous resident of our area – the mountain goats!

Through the rest of this week, they will be talking to a wide variety of volunteers, supporters and people involved in our community conversations about the Scotchman Peaks. We’ll let you know when to get the popcorn ready for the first public showing sometime this fall!
