This new film project called ‘Pretty Strong’ promises to be an action-packed and inspiring project once complete.
The film’s production team have started a kickstarter page, on which they note, “A climbing film about women, by women, for everyone.
“This isn’t a film about gender imbalance or the sexualization of women or what it’s like to have your period at the crag. This is a film about five of the best climbers in the world doing what they do best: crushing.
“Pretty Strong will follow five female climbers around the world as they explore new climbing areas, find projects and push the boundaries of our sport.”
The team explains that out of 91 main segments in high production climbing films (which they watched as research), there were only eight segments that featured a female climber as the main character (and the same woman was the subject in three of those).
For more on the project and the team be sure to visit their fundraising page here. We look forward to this one! Click to watch a trailer below.
Never Not Collective started almost a year ago when four climbers got together with the shared dream to create a production company. As young female climbers, we were always seeking out stories about rad women climbing hard, but found they were few and far between. We're trying to change that with our new film project, Pretty Strong. The feature-length film will follow 5 female climbers around the world as they explore new climbing areas, find projects, and push the boundaries of our sport.
