Meet the Filmmakers

Laurent Bilodeau

Laurent Bilodeau is a director and DoP, from Montreal, QC, Canada, but based out of Squamish, BC. I’ve been in the adventure and action sports films industry for over a decade. It’s always an honor to showcase people’s talent through my vision.

Jess Daddio
The Shearer

Jess Daddio is a Virginia-based freelance filmmaker and writer with a soft spot for rural America. She produced the 2023 Patagonia mountain bike film 'Monte,' and is making her debut as director with 'The Shearer.' Some of her most recent stories have been published by Patagonia, REI’s Uncommon Path, the Bikepacking Journal, and Freehub. The majority of her work gravitates towards stories that reflect the full spectrum of the human experience and are rooted in the natural world. When she’s not in the editing cave, she enjoys bikepacking. Pushing the limits of gas station food as sustenance is her super power. Off the bike, she maintains an irregular yoga practice and occasionally weeds her garden.

Craig Grant
Roots Run Deep: Robin Goomes

I am a freelance director and cinematographer. My work provides a visual escape into natural environments, conveying authentic stories across sport and culture. I take pride in a DIY spirit of moving quickly in uncertain conditions with tight-knit teams, getting my hands dirty in the entire creative process. I collab with brands and agencies on projects that span commercial, branded, and documentary genres.

For over a decade, I worked at Yeti Cycles as their creative director and principal filmmaker. I was responsible for crafting short films, commercial edits, product content, photography, and designing interactive experiences. Over time, these efforts helped build the brand and create a "freak" like following, but I could no longer ignore my curiosity to explore a world beyond two wheels. So, I struck out on my own.

Jonathan Mehring

Based in Richmond, VA, award-winning director and photographer Jonathan Mehring has been documenting action sports stories for over two decades. His book Skate the World - Photographing One World of Skateboarding was published by National Geographic, and his short film Walls Cannot Keep Us From Flying won Honorable Mention at Slamdance Film Festival. Advertising clients include Red Bull, Vans, Adidas, and Nike.

Korey Hopkins

Korey Hopkins has centered his work on his passion for cycling and the outdoors at large. Documenting and telling the story of adventures, big or small, is the goal. His clients include Patagonia, Specialized, and the American Cancer Society.

Katie Lozancich
Coming Home

Katie is an award-winning filmmaker and photographer. Before 'Coming Home,' she was one of the producers behind NEXUS, an all-women's ski film directed, produced, and largely filmed by an all-women's team. Before her freelance career, she worked in-house at Teton Gravity Research as a digital content producer, manager, staff photographer, and cinematographer. Now she works as a freelance storyteller and photo editor for The Ski Journal. The thread that ties her work together is rich storytelling and captivating visuals.

Alex Showerman
Coming Home

Voted one of the Top 20 most influential people in the outdoor sports industry, Alex Showerman has been an active leader in creating space for more women and underrepresented people in action sports. Beyond her athletic pursuits, Alex has coordinated campaign photoshoots, organized community events, and is an experienced producer for creative projects. She draws on her 10 years of brand strategy, public relations, storytelling, advocacy, and athletic achievement to create change through action sports.

Garret Henderson-Black
Mecca in the Making
