Recently, I got the chance to sit down with Ben Crandall, a good friend and composer of the soundtrack for High Country. We talked about his music, his passion for worshipping and helping others worship Jesus, and his approach to the score for the film.
One and half hours and counting in the plane on the tarmac at the Montrose airport – storms in Denver have grounded us for now. What a great time just to have fun with the team! There are no interviews to get or scenes to shoot. All that's left is laughing and talking and playing Monopoly on Neil’s iPad.
As I was checking out of our motel in Ouray this morning, I found out that Ursula, who was working the front desk, is from Peru! Not only is that completely fabulous because I used to live there and love meeting people from there, but she was so excited to learn that there are men from South America right here in her mountains. She wanted to know exactly where they are currently camped so she can go visit them.
We met Julio while filming High Country . He lives in this tent while working as a shepherd near Silverton, Colorado.
