CAUCHON: answers from the woods
CAUCHON: answers from the woods

This Short Docu-Film gets inside the mind of Jeff Cauchon, one of Canada’s top ultra runners as he attempts to break the record for Greatest Elevation Gain on Foot in 24 Hours. Explore the challenges of Jeff’s epic ambitions in a summer riddled with uncertainty.​​​​​​​ 

The idea at the start was to do a recap video of the 24-hour event but as you can see, it turned out to be much more than this. Over the summer I formed an emotionally deep but physically distant connection to the Cauchon family—learning about their origin story as well as watching them work as a team made me want to capture so much more. The story to be told was much bigger than a 24-hour event. To me, answers from the woods is the perfect balance of a humanistic family docu portrait with the cinematic punch of an epic, world record attempt. It took me (working with talents from all across the globe) about half a year to capture and produce something that reflects the true determination and beauty of the Cauchon family’s character, and I am extremely proud to present this to you today.
