Breckenridge Creative Arts presents ‘The Lens of Adventure’ with award-winning filmmaker
Join Bryan Smith, an award-winning filmmaker for the National Geographic Channel, as he shares moments from his assignments to document extreme feats and high adventure in the world’s most challenging environments. “The Lens of Adventure” with Bryan Smith is Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at the Riverwalk Center, presented by Breckenridge Creative Arts. The cost is $25 to $45; students and kids are $10. Tickets can be purchased at tickets.breckcreate.org.
An experienced kayaker who had paddled steep rivers in India, Peru and Russia, Smith was inspired to take up video photography while protesting a hydroelectric dam project that threatened British Columbian rivers. He quickly developed a knack for creating innovative technical solutions to capture dizzying images — inevitably putting himself and his team at risk to get the shot. Currently, Smith is traveling the world in search of the world’s freshwater giants for the popular Nat Geo WILD series “Monster Fish.” He recently filmed and directed “The Man Who Can Fly,” a National Geographic special documenting experiments in human-powered flight. For Bryan Smith, extreme is “whatever is scary for you,” and he repeatedly tests the limits. Meet this dynamic filmmaker, adventurer and conservationist for amazing stories and intense footage shot in stunning locations.
National Geographic Live Breckenridge is a three-part speaker series that showcases the world through the eyes of great explorers, filmmakers and photographers. The Breckenridge program, which is the first National Geographic Live series in Colorado, will expose rarely seen perspectives on exploration through the often-daring experiences of National Geographic personalities.
