Andrew Kornylak was a Top Pro with Westcott in 2009. Throughout this time we have fallen in love with his work both in photography as well as videography.
Recently Andrew was asked to film the 10th Anniversary film for the Triple Crown Bouldering Series. During the filming Andrew was able to utilize the Scrim Jim as well as Westcott Reflectors to help him achieve the perfect lighting in the video.
I shot this short film for prAna in the mountains of Boone, NC over the course of a week late this summer. As always, the Scrim Jim and the Reflectors were perfect for the interviews…I’m amazed at how much abuse I can put a single Scrim Jim through in a year and still set it up rip-free and sail-tight! – Andrew Kornylak
What is the Trip Crown Bouldering?
The goal of the Triple Crown is twofold. First and foremost, the mission is to raise funds for two organizations dedicated to maintaining climbers’ access: the Southeastern Climbers’ Coalition and The Carolina Climbers’ Coalition. These two organizations have been instrumental in the acquisition of land for the climbing community, in a region that is riddled with access issues. Secondly, this unique event will once again provide a tremendous opportunity for vendors to promote the sport of bouldering, which has quickly become the focus of the ever growing climbing community.
How do I participate?
Triple Crown is a series of bouldering events at three of the premier boulderfields in the Southeast. The series kicks off in the fall beginning with Hound Ears in Boone, NC, moves on to Stone Fort in Chattanooga, TN and then concludes at Horse Pens-40 in Steele, AL. The dates for each event are set for October 6 — Hound Ears, October 13 — the Stone Fort, and November 3 — Horse Pens 40.
You can register for the event as a series or for any of the individual comps. See the registration page for detailed information. Register as early as possible, space is limited and this event fills up FAST!
