The Belayer

The Belayer from Jamie Maddison on Vimeo.

An experiment with long shot filming (no tripod unfortunately) as well as some art house-esk filler for my blogspot. The intent was to try and capture the sort of atmosphere and feeling of the belayer, an action that is largely ignored in climbing media despite its integral part of the climbing process.

However I am pretty sure this short isn't very successful; I even suspect it of being just plain boring! Serves me right for trying to be so arty. 

N.B. I am stuck at home without climbing and desperately trying to do pull ups on door frames and other such nonsense in an effort to keep my body in fit bouldering shape. Me thinks I have gone quite mad!
