The Elucidation of Adventure is a short documentary film that explores meaning-making and process variables of outdoor adventure. The film follows the journey of Becca, Maryann, and Sam: who spend two months kayaking almost 2,000 miles of the mighty Yukon River.
Their trip is by no means easy. Times of both the good and bad are captured. In addition to telling some of their story, we learn about what adventure means to them, and how outdoor expedition adventures provide fulfillment and purpose to their own lives. Their testimony strikes a cord to anybody who chooses to adventure outside, while also inspiring and connecting with those who maybe are craving an adventure of their own.
This film was completed as my final Senior Project for my undergraduate degree in Outdoor Studies.
