Posing Productions is a leading producer of rock climbing and adventure films founded by Alastair Lee who’s collaborations with animators, cameramen and musicians namely David Halsted, Jen Randall, David Reeves, James Stirzaker, Pendle Coven, Chris Brooke, Nik Coombs and JacktoPhono Records, has produced a string of award winning rock climbing films like SET IN STONE, PSYCHE and the ground breaking recent productions; THE ASGARD PROJECT, PSYCHE II, MOONFLOWER and now here is our latest AUTANA. This release sees Tom Eno provide the soundtrack. After some time away working on his Mountain Folk project, Tom is now working on his 3rd album. Jungle camp sees him on form and has been described by Steve Lamacq as genreless!
Coming into 2012 Filmaker Alastair Lee was fresh from the success of Moonflower, The Asgard Project and the Live for Adventure Campaign for Berghaus. These three very different recent projects have elevated the success of Posing Productions. One of the projects had demanded jumping out of a moving aeroplane over Baffin Island, avoiding Polar Bears and battling freezing temperatures.
The next adventure begins in Venezuela in the depths of the Amazonian Jungle. Alongside British Adventurer Leo Houlding the team attempt the first ascent of the East Face of Cuerro Autana. It is one of the Amazon’s most remote and sacred mountains. The team were given a blessing from a local Shaman in a Yopo ceremony and then began a four day trek through the Amazon to reach base camp. Posing Productions and Jack to Phono hope to continue their alliance for many years to come.
