Artist and Filmmaker Jeremy Collins on Climbing, Creativity, and Balance

Collins, a climber, artist, and filmmaker, has worked for outdoor clients (Prana, National Geographic, Patagonia, and a dozen others) as well as contributed his work to films and made his own films. His 2011 film, The Wolf and the Medallion, won best in Festival at the 5Point Film Festival and the Creative Excellence Award at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, and recently became available online. With one of his newest projects, Drawn, a book-and-film narrative spanning three continents and several years, Collins hoped to raise $50,000 on Kickstarter. Almost 800 donors pledged $70,000 to the campaign, which ended May 18.

Now he’s putting together the film project, which will premiere this fall at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. 1. Usually I have my headphones in so they won’t ask.

2014 Resolution: Do Things, Make Things. My parents gave me Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York book for a holiday gift, and I spent the next hour flipping from cover to cover, in awe and admiration of Stanton’s work, and the depth of humanity he’d been able to experience through his portraits and interviews.

2014 Resolution: Do Things, Make Things

Among his photos of the costumes and the kids and the freaks and the regular-looking folks who make up the population of one of the most interesting cities in America, Stanton captured dozens of poignant quotes and stories from his subjects. About halfway through the book, next to a photo of a woman in her early 20s, was this one: “It seems that a lot of people my age try to be interesting by having problems or starting conflicts. I’d rather be interesting because I created something beautiful.” 2014 Goals: 1. Are you going to climb Everest or win an Oscar in 2014?
