Outdoor video Motion Graphics
Just came across your Epic Trails Adventure Filmmaker post.
I have created hundreds of trail videos in WA and MT working with local guidebook authors.
We recently finished an animated video for the American Alpine Club and have a similar style video featured on Outside Magazine Online.
Would love to connect and discuss filming and motion graphics if you are interested.
SINTR®️ Visual Communications in partnership with My Outdoor Alphabet proposes to utilize Seth Neilson’s My Outdoor Alphabet illustrative style and concept to introduce American Alpine Club membership benefits to the climbing audience with key benefits and iconic imagery from the climbing vernacular.
- The Guy -
Raised in the two best "W" states in the union (Wyoming and Washington), Seth was introduced to the mountains at an early age. After family trips into the Uinta, Wasatch, and Cascade ranges, he fell in with a group of Boy Scouts and a leader who took them into the high mountains of the Pacific Northwest and then on to the Tetons and Wind Rivers. Now with multiple decades of mountain experience behind him, Seth continues to pass on the soul and stoke of the outdoors to his own children and the local Scouts of Bozeman, Montana.

Creative / Animator
Upon climbing the Kor Ingalls route on Castleton Tower in College Bryan acquired a taste for classic lines and hand jams. He has cragged throughout the western states and enjoys navigating remote alpine trails, glaciers and granite in the North Cascades the most. A "master" Nordic skier (over 30 and an AXCS member), Bryan has participated in Master World Cups and takes principles of the sport into the mountains where he delights in moving through alpine terrain across mountain ranges - with poles.
Bryan lives in Bozeman, MT where he and the family (wife, 3 daughters and spastic Golden Doodle) burn off steam on mountain trails year-round.

- The Alpinist's Alphabet -
Presenting an illustrated "abecedary"—from the alpinist's point of view.
26 letters, 26 "need-to-know" terms for the discerning climber. You weren't short-changed any letters - they're all there. From ascender to z-pulley, your office (or playroom or nursery or bedroom or hallway) wall will share the stoke of the mountain world with anyone who stops to check out the quality of the three color screen print, and test their knowledge of the climber's vocabulary.
The American Alpine Club Alphabet Custom Screen Printed Poster
We propose an update to the classic Alpinist's Alphabet with AAC specific terms, potentially including benefits, history, properties like the Teton Climbers Ranch, current events, or personalities. The screen printed poster may retain some of the traditional terms, but by highlighting AAC-specific benefits for members, we can make it really resonate and represent the soul of the club.
The custom illustrations could lend themselves to other merchandising/licensing opportunities, including T-shirts, mugs, canteens, etc.
- My American Alpine Club Outdoor Alphabet -
In addition to the custom poster incentive, we propose to highlight the exclusive member benefits through custom illustrations in the style of My Outdoor Alphabet.
We would create a custom illustration for each of the 10 member benefits below that could then be highlighted and shared in different mediums and channels:
Aa – is for the American Alpine Club
Bb – is for Benefits
Dd – is for Guide Discounts
Ee – is for Equipment Discounts
Gg – is for Gym
Gg – is for Grants
Pp – is for Publications
Ii – is for Insurance benefits
Ll – is for Lodging Discounts
Mm – is for Magazine Discounts
Rr – is for Rescue Benefits
Note: There are currently 10 benefits listed on the page. Does it make sense just to make custom illustrations for those, or hybrid poster between the existing Alpinist poster?
