Capturing perspective changing stories at 29 frames per second.

Experience Alaska's toughest trail race alongside the runners who dare the 3022 feet of Mt. Marathon.

Alaska's mountain playground from the air. 

The race is widely known as the Alaskan Olympics, and is loved for it's dangerous and challenging course by athletes and spectators alike. Many people in the lower 48 look at the race and call it crazy, but in Alaska, it's just part of a Wild Life.

Ode to winter running, and the joy and happiness that cold feet can bring. 

An uphill 20.5mile roller ski is just the start for two-time Olympian Holly Brooks, as she works toward finding excellence in herself. 

The race up Mt. Marathon has held one record time for last 32 of 86 races. On July 4th 2013 Eric Strabel and Rickey Gates both broke Bill Spencer's 3 decade old time in an epic race up and down the 3022' mountain in Seward, Alaska

In their pursuit to race at the NCAA D II National Championships, the Western Washington University cross country team will have run 52,374 miles, enough miles to circle the earth twice.

What the trails have in store. 

 

Go beyond the finish line and into the lives of the racers that run Alaska's most beloved race in this upcoming documentary by film making duo Max Romey and Natalie Fedak. 

Filmed on the dangerous slopes of Mt. Marathon in Seward Alaska, 3022 Ft. aims to give mountain racing fans  a behind the scenes look at the mountain each athlete has to climb before they even get to the starting line. Follow two-time Olympic skier Holly Brooks as she faces the mountain that put her in a hospital gurney 5 years ago, Mt. Marathon men's record holder Eric Strabel as he defends his title, Seward native Denali Foldager as she makes her running comeback after struggling with injuries and drug addiction, Matt "The Bear" Novakovich as he looks to reclaim his title with a new Spartan Racing skill set, and 2013 Mt. Marathon champion Christy Marvin, full time mother of three looking to earn her rank among Olympians. Guiding us through the story is long time friend of the mountain, Flip Foldager, a 35 year veteran of the race, and "the guy to talk to" for all things Mt. Marathon.

The film is currently in post-production, which means that all the footage from race day, interviews and interactions is being processed and edited. 3022ft. will be finished in Spring of 2015.

Max is a student in Fairhaven College at Western Washington University, where he's been able to tailor his education towards documentary film production and utilize independent study opportunities to gain experience in the field.

With 3022 ft, Max has found the perfect combination of documentary storytelling, running culture and raw inspiration, and is excited to see how 3022 ft. encourages viewers to overcome the obstacles life places in front of them. 

Some of Max's past work includes highlight videography for clubs, teams and organizations up and down the West coast, as well as working as a free-lance editor and cinematographer.
