Big One Film Tour

We’re on a Search for the Big One (SFTBO for short) and coming to a town near you. 

This spring, we traveled over 5,700 miles in four weeks to create a series humanity-focused films. From sub-zero temperatures in Central Idaho to 80-degree days in Southern California, these incredible stories of humanity feature an avalanche rescue dog (and her human), pro surfers, rock climbers, and tough mothers.

We’re ready to share these films. And you’re invited!

About the films

Ruby Dog

 

Working animals bring an uninhibited passion to their jobs. In this story, we follow Ruby, an avalanche rescue dog and her partner Pat, as they fly deep into the backcountry of Idaho to showcase the bond they have formed and their abilities in the snow.

Protect Our Water 

 

Set against the backdrop of Hansen Surfboards and Hobie Surf Shop, two of the oldest and most iconic shops in America, we examine the surfing pioneers, like Rob Machado, and their youthful counterparts as they fight alongside the Surfrider Foundation to conserve the ocean and protect their love.

Family Powers

 

Phil Powers is a climbing legend. He summited K2 without oxygen and has a first ascent on Denali. But his toughest challenge, however, happened after a simple climb on his lunch break. After a miscommunication and a 70-foot fall, the CEO of the American Alpine Club was left fighting for his life.

Why We’re Doing This

Community & humanity. Good business is made possible by the great community that surrounds it. This tour will be a series of community celebrations and lifting up the people that inspire us. We’re celebrating adventure and the fight for conservation. We made these films to lift up people who have dedicated their lives to pursue a greater good. And when an entire community is inspired to pursue their highest calling, lives are changed. We aim to be a small part of a giant wave. You can help us make it bigger.

What can you expect at these tour stops? Films! (of course!) Plus, food, drinks, and fun with likeminded people. All proceeds collected will benefit local charities.

Our Tour Partners
