With a mission to amplify the voice of nature and to encourage individuals to go outdoors, Sherpas Cinema, a boutique full service production house in Whistler, is pushing boundaries with its cutting-edge filmmaking techniques. Sherpas Cinema’s films are known for their intimate character development and thrilling mountain experiences, all of which can be seen in their latest short film, Imagination.
Recently shot in Nelson, Imagination, starring Tom Wallisch and Sequoia Colbeck, is dedicated to the late Canadian ski icon, JP Auclair who tragically died in an avalanche in 2014 while shooting footage for a film project in the remote mountains of Chile. Auclair was named one of National Geographic’s Adventurers of the Year for 2014 and dubbed by ski magazines everywhere as the sport’s “renaissance man”. Sherpas Cinema director Dave Mossop, the visionary behind JP Auclair’s street skiing film, All.I.Can., came together with his crew for Imagination, to pay tribute to the legend that revolutionized skiing forever.
