Abstract

This short film focuses on the sport and recreation of mountain biking in and around the Ellensburg area. Through interviews and visual imagery of mountain biking, the film explores the motives behind mountain biking, provides a glimpse into a unique and growing subculture, and offers insight into the positive impacts that biking can have on a personal, community, and worldwide scale. Hands-on footage was collected using a mounted camera, and the images and interviews were collected using a handheld camera. The intention of the film is to expose the audience to the subculture, as well as widen their perspectives on the sport, the environment, and human interactions with nature and each other.
