Elk hunter and mountain athlete Mark Seacat has long believed that the primal act of hunting is, at its core, quite beautiful. Now he and director Christopher Murphy think they’ve proven it with their film "Searching for West".
Revealing the beauty of a discipline that’s been relegated to three-digit cable channels meant using the latest cutting-edge equipment, like gyroscopic camera stabilizers mounted to helicopters and a camera that shoots more than 2,500 frames per second. It meant inventing graceful new ways to show the flight of arrows and bullets. And it meant telling good stories, like when Seacat is forced to choose between forays deep into the backcountry and time spent at home with his young family.
