Fitz Cahall, author of the Dirtbag Diaries, partnered with Bryan Smith to create the 22 episode web tv show “The Season.” Sponsored by Arc’Teryx and New Belgium, “The Season.” follows five athletes with their dreams and realizations during the course of one season.
I’d met Fitz years ago through a mutual friend but it wasn’t until recently that we bumped into each other again. He was secretive about his ‘video’ project but now that the trailer is out, I can see why. The amount of work to be out there capturing skilled athletes on camera–and telling a story too–is as committing the sports themselves. That commitment is what makes this kind of work, and these kind of sports, a lifestyle, not just a hobby.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to “The Season.” both from a creative’s standpoint and as someone who once lived the climbing life.
