If you’re interested here’s a quick post with information on ‘The Cairngorms in Winter with Chris Townsend’.
First off, if you’re up for seeing it on the big screen, the film is being shown this Wednesday from 8pm at Eden Court, Inverness. Chris Townsend will be in attendance for a Q&A session afterwards too. The film is well worth viewing on a cinema screen. I spent a week some time ago converting the film into Digital Cinema Projection format for Rheged’s IMAX cinema which means I’m now able to send the film out to any interested arts centres and such like nationwide. So, if you live local to Inverness, go see it!
Next up, I have a limited run of ‘The Cairngorms in Winter’ on DVD available. £14.99 inc postage.
Limited signed prints by Chris Townsend are available too, for the first 25 orders.

|The Cairngorms in Winter with Chris Townsend on the IMAX screen at Rheged Centre last July.|
The film continues to receive critical acclaim, which has astonished me and Chris. We had no idea folk would lap it up they way they have. Me particularly so. I always thought some might find it a bit too slow. It’s not action-packed and deliberately so. I always wanted the film to be about the Cairngorms and Chris as guide. But I was keen to make the film ‘old school’ style – the visuals telling the story. For me too many outdoor based films are just not about the spectacular landscapes they’re set amongst.
They’re just a backdrop. And even then not many showcase the British Countryside and in a spectacular way either. I endeavoured to show the Cairngorms at their best (and worst) in the little time I had working on the film with Chris.
Here’s some quotes from recent reviews of the film:
“Both men show incredible commitment in the making of this film…Similar to Chris’ books, this film portrays the whole picture as opposed to focusing on key areas….Terry’s cinematography is captivating throughout and is a true masterpiece in motion; there is the right balance of beautiful scenery parallel with the daily struggles and ‘chit chat’ to camera….for those who have never been to the Cairngorms it’s awe-inspiring and aspirational, and for those who know it well it’s an opportunity to relive an unforgettable experience.”
Roger Cox, The Scotsman
“On first viewing, the most striking thing about the film is that it’s slow. Radically, game-changingly slow. Films about men and mountains, whether they involve climbing, skiing, snowboarding or paragliding, tend to rattle along at a breathless pace. Every trick in the book, from frantic jump-cutting to an amped-up soundtrack, will typically be deployed to hold the attention of the imagined audience: namely the twitchy, limited-attention-span members of Generation Google.”
