Finishing up Cascadia took a lot longer than these final climbs but it was also pretty amazing and kinda a bad idea to take a full camera bag up Mt. Shasta in a day, I’d do it again tomorrow if I had to tho.

As we continued up through the Cascade range we hit weather in Oregon, this was the longest I’ve spent in the state and started to see the beauty in the place, Bend does amazing beer as well as has some real fun mountains to climb.

After months of editing and procrastinating and going around a little in circle we’re finally getting very close to the release of Cascadia, the split board and ski touring video series I shot during the 2016 spring from California north up the Cascade mountain range, all the way up to Washington.

I spend far too much time nesting clips in Premiere for warp stabilizer. It probably should be possible to drop warp stabilizer onto any clip in the timeline, if no speed or different dimensions to the timeline then it works as normal. If it does have speed or different size then Premiere auto nests, deals with the warp stabilizer and then adjusts speed or scale in the working timeline. Seems like an easy fix that would save me a bunch of time.

I’ve been working on a friends site over at It’s nothing too crazy but has a form or a couple forms that can help them with setting up appointments, the general put your name, email and a few details about what your looking for. The interesting bit came through with adding a calendar so you can pick what day you want the guys to come around. General jQuery datepicker showing inline which is all well and good except we needed the ability to block out the dates they can’t get around as they are already booked out. This doesn’t seem to be something that is done very often in the way I’m looking for, possibly because it’s in wordpress or php or html or mysql or maybe I just don’t know the right tools for doing this, or I’m just searching the wrong key words. I’m running a backend page that looks pretty much the same as the front end but behind a login and only has the datepicker, this drops the date in a mysql database but bringing that array back into the front end page to block off the dates took a minute to figure out. The database comes back in as an array and needs to be converted a single variable which can then be thrown into the script tag, this is the front end form.

get_col( "SELECT dates FROM jkb_blackout;" ); $string = ''; foreach ($array as $key => $value) { $string .= ",$value"; } ?>

Then the code for the functions.php file
// deals with variable set through form _POST // Blackout function prefix_admin_black() { // deal with the upload if ( ! function_exists( ‘wp_handle_upload’ ) ) { require_once( ABSPATH . ‘wp-admin/includes/file.php’ ); } // Extremley Important to set global $wpdb; // Whats inserted $wpdb->insert( jkb_blackout , array( ‘dates’ => $_POST[‘dates’] ) ); // this give the unid in the next url $id = $wpdb->insert_id; // fail safe if above zero was inserted to database if ($id>0) { // Redirect wp_redirect( home_url() . ‘/black’ ); } else { // Redirect wp_redirect( home_url() . ‘/sorry’ ); } exit(); } add_action( ‘admin_post_black’, ‘prefix_admin_black’ ); add_action( ‘admin_post_nopriv_black’, ‘prefix_admin_black’ ); I’m missing stuff on the fail states, errors security and things like that but for right now it’s working and you can check out some dates that have been blacked out on

I’ve been working with wineram on a new website, which you can check out but also one of the cool things about it is that if your liking the way it looks the wordpress theme is available for purchase, there are a few custom things involved in wineram’s site but thats cool and as the theme is used for a commercial project already it’s guaranteed to keep getting updates, well more so than me saying I will keep working on a passion project. Penrose as theme is known by itself has been developed with wineram so as a primary use a video portfolio it works great but by no means that is it’s only application. I do plan on writing more documentation of the theme but as a working example use and get in contact if you think you might want to use the theme. wineram screen

A couple of weeks back I got to catch up with one of skiing pioneers and quite the marketing genius, more people know who this guy is than the last olympic gold medalists to have a chat for The Inertia and Canted Angle Productions.

Bento backs up the Will J in Japan piece I worked on two years ago and I think the follow up has come out way better than the original. I always have got plans for what more I can do and only some of that will ever happen. From seeing as much social media as around these days I wanted to take the approach of every time I would go to shoot an instagram I would also hit record on a little clip. Having the Sony A7 is really a massive part of this, with something so small I can have it around my neck whenever I’m crusing and still have the quality to put it on a tripod with a long lens and shoot a full frame sensor at 60fps. I’m not sure if everything I will do will always be a mirrorless but for right now I’m really happy with the setup.
But as I have Monster as the support on the piece they have more of a shred porn approach to the videos and the second song especially holds true to that with only splashes of culture. A huge thank you to everyone involved with this piece, Will J first off, putting in the effort everyday to get out there and ride for the camera, he has one of the best work ethics of an professional athletes and it shows in the part.
Monster for the backing and the social support, having a release platform of Facebook with 24 million likes is something that can’t be discounted.
Ash, Dylan, Perrian and all the crew at Holiday Niseko they make the trip soon much more relaxed.
