Troutdale: Dead Sheep Goo Pit

Eastwinds Development will be building a new hotel and community complex on the site of the old Bissinger Wool Pullery. 
The company is voluntarily removing the remains of thousands of dead sheep buried alongside the iconic water tower from the 1930s. 
The pit where Bissinger buried the dead sheep is now covered in dirt and blackberry bushes. Tests revealed that just below the surface of dirt and blackberry bushes, the pit of dead sheep has turned into a kind of goo.

Timelapse: Multnomah Falls to Dodson

The original idea behind this project was to create a timelapse video of the original Route 2 route through the Gorge... While it has grown a long way from that initial idea, it is still something I am working on.

Of course, my eyes blur after watching a timelapse video for more than a minute or so, which is one of the reasons this project grew into a full documentary. To combat that, I am breaking the timelapse into one minute sections, aligned with the sections on the website.

These are a little rough, but they are what they are. I don't want to take the time to really clean them up at this point, I have more interesting films to make about the highway now!

Back on it after being super busy preparing some film festival submissions and fighting the worst cold I've had in years...  Not much time left for anything else between the two!
Just a plain old waterfall shot of Oneonta Falls from last summer.  I'd love to get back there when that thing was really going, but I have no idea how to do that safely!  Makes me cold just thinking about it...
