ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
It’s not often that Jimmy Chin spends time in once place, so catching him for this sit-down conversation has been a long time in the making.
Jimmy is an Academy Award Winning Filmmaker, National Geographic photographer and mountain sports athlete known for his ability to capture extraordinary imagery and stories while climbing and skiing in extremely high-risk environments and expeditions. His work has graced the covers of many magazines and articles including National Geographic, and the New York Times. His 2015 film Meru won the coveted Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival and was on the 2016 Oscar shortlist for Best Documentary. Jimmy’s latest documentary Free Solo won a BAFTA, 7 Emmy’s and an Academy Award for best Documentary Feature in 2019.
In this conversation, Jimmy takes us on a tour of his career and gives us almost a step-by-step breakdown of how he came up from a kid sleeping in his car at the crag and shooting whatever he could to working with some of the top mountain athletes in the world. Some topics we get into:
- * how to navigate pursuing what you love, even if it’s initially misunderstood by your family or loved ones.
- * winning recognition from your peers in any field
- * how mentorship and community play a role in developing artist and a career
- * eye-opening moments that makes us re-think and re-evaluate what is most important to us
- * and so much more...
