“Fellraisers” is the latest offering from our very own Fellephant aka Mark Birbeck.
An introduction from Mark :-
This is my latest fell running film called Fellraisers. Its been filmed in 1080 HD.
The inspiration for this film came directly from injury. My thought during injury 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 cant enter them.
The footage was filmed in 2012\2013 over the period of a year in Wales and England. I think I had two days where it didn’t rain during filming. It was a nightmare, but ultimately worth it because of the type of footage I acquired.
The race footage in the film comes from y Moelwyn, Ovenden, Barbondale, Great Lakes, Scafell Pike, Great Whernside, Foel Fras, Walsh Two Lads, Paddy’s Pole, Borrowdale, Crowhill Reverse, Blisco Dash and Belmont Winter Hill.
So here it is, an off the wall take on fell running accompanied by my own music.
I hope in some way you like the film.
