The inspiration for this film came directly from injury. My thought, whilst injured, was to make a film which represented the way I felt during that period, notably the speed in which races come and go when I can’t be in them.



Film footage captured over a period of six months or so during 2011. The races it was filmed at are mentioned within its content. However other random races are also mentioned. All of the footage in this film has been shot by fellephant. The music and final editing has also been done by fellephant.

This is a 1280×720 high def film. It has been entirely filmed on a Go Pro HD Hero camera without the use of a screen or view finder. The film has been edited on an Apple iMac. The music has been recorded by a BOSS Micro BR digital recorder using a Roland piano and a Korg XL synthesiser.

Fellrunning footage taken from Belmont Winter Hill 2010/2011 plus the start of Winter Hill Fell race and bits of Hendersons End Fell Race.


Test Video Go-Pro 2012

This very short film is a prequel and practice attempt at filming the Norman Mathews Winter Hill fell race which will appear on youtube around March time next year. The race takes place every year in February. The purpose of this film is solely to show Alex how the camera works and what the footage looks like when used in different ways. Not all of the footage is desirable, however, this aids as a tool when viewed. I’m showing the world why I should really be a shot putter and not a fell runner. I only just make the jump at the start of the film.
