Brendan, Eric and Todd, are the trio at the very soul of Mountain Mind Media. Above all, we strive to bring passion, knowledge and FUN to every project we work on. As professional kayakers and avid skiers, bikers and climbers, we find that hard to reach places are our favorite studio. We are passionate about telling stories that have a positive influence on our world.
Brendan began capturing memories via film and photography since he was ten years old. Brendan studied Film Production and Environmental Studies at Fairhaven College. Since graduating in 2014, he has dedicated his life to environmental education, creating inspiring films and exploring the world.
Eric, better known as just "Parker" has been a part of the Mountain Mind team since the very beginning. Eric has worked alongside photographers like Paul Nicklen, and has been the principal photographer on projects for Red Bull, National Geographic, Adidas, Outside Magazine and many more.
Todd has dedicated his life to kayaking by competing in races and expeditions from Chile to China. Todd was recently awarded the National Geographic Young Explores Grant, which brought the Mountain Mind team to explore and document the unknown glacial-fed rivers of Alaska.
These are some of the amazing companies we've had the opportunity to work with that you may or may not have heard of before:
We believe in keeping it simple. Although we like to use the latest gear and equipment, it is more important to know how to use it. Our production kit allows us to go where others can’t while providing the similar production value as a Hollywood set. Our equipment includes a RED Raven, Sony A7S ii, Panasonic GH5, Canon L lenses, Ronin-M gimbal, DJI Inspire 2 and Mavic Drones, pro tripods and sliders, LED lighting kits, and wireless lav/boom mics. All cameras are capable of recording 4K+ resolution in slow motion and the RED camera and Inspire 2 drone can record in RAW, allowing high-quality stills to be pulled from any video frame.
