In Summer of 2011, alpinist Kyle Dempster set out across Kyrgyzstan’s back roads on his bike. His goal – ride across the country via old Soviet roads while climbing as many of the region’s impressive peaks as possible. He found an entirely different kind of adventure.
After receiving a hard drive of Kyle Dempster’s footage from Outdoor Research, Duct Tape Then Beer asked us to sort through the footage and create a short piece highlighting his trip. When we looked at the footage, we realized Kyle had all the elements of a great adventure story. As an integrated part of the Duct Tape Then Beer team, we assisted with post production editing, website development, and distribution.
The Road From Karakol has been accepted into many adventure film festivals, including winning Best of Festival at 5Point Film Festival in 2013.
