A military trauma surgeon and his twenty-something son take the ashes of their deceased wife and mother to Treeline Lake, a place she loved. Against his father's wishes, the son creates a podcast about the experience that he hopes will advance his career as a radio journalist. This is the story of their last trip as a family.
I recently completed Treeline Lake in collaboration with a scrappy cast and crew of independent filmmakers, including Sinah Ober, who directed the film (lucky me).
We shot the film at 8,500 feet of elevation at Snowslide Lake in Idaho.
