'When' by James DUnn - Eddir Barbour climbing, 5 kbThis week's excellent Friday Nighter is from James Dunn.

The film, which features mountain biking, running and climbing is a look at 'When' people with full time jobs fit in their passions.

The climber is Eddie Barbour and we loved his philosophy on life - girls, eating and getting ill! Excellent!

Great effort James. A lot of work has gone into that video.

Enthusiasm = Ability this time ;-)

Some of it was the stuff ive ridden but didnt recognize some of it.... secret stuff?

In reply to Adam Lincoln: Not very secret, but not on the standard trail centre loop either. I'll draw you a proper map if you stick your head in next time you're passing.

Indeed. I shall no longer feel worthy enough to come into the shop and buy anything from her.

Excellent film, cheers. I watched it with my other half next to me and it added context to the eternal "Can I have a pass to go climbing please?" debate.
James Dunn - on 27 Jan 2013
In reply to Jack Frost: thanks Jack! It did take quite a while to shoot and edit, so glad you enjoyed it.

Aha, an old blipper!? Still blipping? Send me your link, would be good to have a browse - I haven't been in there in ages, just lost the motivation and was working so blips were turning very repetitive!

I think it might have been enthusiasm < ability though, from waning enthusiasm towards the end as I was tight on deadline!

In reply to UKC News: thanks for the other comments too, super glad that people enjoyed it, makes it all the easier to get psyched for the next project!

In reply to Toerag: outside Aberdeen, details here; http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=10092

Or check out the new Scottish sport guide that just came out recently, it's supposed to be an excellent guide;

Please could everyone who liked the film vote for James on the Fort William Mountain Film Festival (link below) to make up for my embarrassment at being on the home page of UKC in my running gear!

Thank you so much.

In reply to UKC News: Brilliant video, rings very true, especially the runner (Pauline?). Having a young family and a growing addiction to running long distances I could really relate to that. All in all though very well put together with some nice edits and beautiful scenic shots, plus three very like-able characters each juggling their daily commitments.

This reminds me of something I read somewhere which basically says the first thing you have to do when you have a goal you want to achieve is list the things you will give up in order to get there. Could be time, could be chocolate or a night in front of the telly, there will always be something and most reasons people (me included) give for not achieving is down to a conscious or unconscious decision not to make the sacrifice (after watching this can you REALLY say you just don't have the time!?)

Good effort James, you got my vote, keep up the good work

Isn't running what mountaineers take up once they have a young family? A run can be squeezed into a short time any time of day or night, whereas mountaineering doesn't really work like that!

Exactly! I can head out early and be home, completely destroyed, shortly after breakfast. Climbing on the other hand is a day out and subsequently much harder to arrange.

In reply to andybenham: Thanks for the kind comments and vote Andy, much appreciated, really glad you could relate to it and enjoyed it on both a personal and videographic level.

I agree with your comments, I can't recall where I read it either though, but it was a similar argument and very true!

Thanks again
:)
