It’s September in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains. The air begins to cool, the leaves show their colors, and the thunderstorms go on their way. The elk begin to gather in the meadows in anticipation of the rut. Fall marks the end of a beautiful summer, like sunset at the end of a long day.
Fallorado is a documentary film showcasing the one-of-a-kind experience of fall in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Beginning production in September 2022.
In the Rockies, every season brings unique changes to the landscape. But none of them are quite like the fall. The premise of this film is to capture the season’s dramatic changes to the landscape in a new light.
Production for Fallorado will begin in September 2022. Final filming locations have yet to be determined, but will include scenes from the Front Range, the Wasatch Range, and the San Juan Mountains.
The total estimated length of the film is 45-60 minutes.
The film will be available to everyone for free on Vimeo and YouTube.
More details to come.
