Movie making: Behind the scenes….The River Why

I found these older pics from 2011, when a film crew came to a fly shop (NW Fly Fishing Outfitters, Portland, Oregon) where my son, Tony, was working. I have previously posted a pic of Tony with Zach Gilford, who played Gus Oviston in the movie, The River Why. But, I found some behind the scenes images that Tony had gathered in the small fly shop. They show the size and volume of equipment and people involved for a very few scenes at the shop.

Here, in a quiet moment, Zach, Tony and the late and great John Hagan (owner of NWFFO) discussed Gilford’s life and travels.

A fair amount of movies are shot in and around Portland so I see the neighborhoods taken over with big trailers etc. TV shows like Grimm and Leverage film quite a bit in Portland.

TdF: Tour de France

I mention this each season, I always enjoy the Tour de France (TdF). I don’t follow the bike racing scene other than this one race. 21 days of ‘stages’ I most enjoy the mountain stages in the Alps and like today in the Pyrenees. The chaos at the top, the narrow passages at 10-18% gradients and pucker up downhill portions are fascinating to watch, to imagine. They (the cyclist) don’t fit any profile (physically) I usually come to admire in sports. But their courage, endurance and even strength is obviously there. Kind of like misunderstanding the fitness of a jockey.

TdF Map 2012

This year Bradley Wiggins of the UK, has the chance to be the first Brit to win the TdF. Best wishes. Most enjoyable to me is the scenery gained from the helicopter traveling the race route. If you know team/individual bike racing (cycling), you already understand the strategies, names and terminology. Took me a bit, but now I understand it as if watching a baseball game. Today is a perfect stage (Limoux to Foix) to see the crazy fanatics (fans), color, scenery and celebration of the TdF.
