In April of 2021 I had been asked to film Red Trouser Runners run around Wales, a simple plan, run around Wales in about 22 days and filming the events as they unfolded. The film is embedded below if you would like to watch this in the background whilst you read through this autopsy of my filming learnings.
As a lot more time may be on your hands due to current circumstances, we'd thought it would be a good idea to share our 50 best ultra marathon films to watch.
A lot of these mountain short stories, ultra marathon films and documentaries are inspiration for our own films at Kelp and Fern.
Some of these creators inspired our first two ultra marathon films, The Pen Llyn Ultra Marathon Film where we documented the entire 29 hours of the amazing ultra marathon race held in North West Wales on the Llyn Peninsula.
