Anson Fogel - Camp4 Collective Cinematographer/Director Reel
The first time I saw Anson’s work was his beautifully directed and edited short film “COLD.” The film was about the first winter ascent of Gasherbrum II, but it wasn’t your typical outdoor adventure film. It was different. It was nuanced, subtle yet emotionally charged, starkly scored, polished. I’d seen a lot of adventure type films and this was one of the first films in the genre I truly wish I had made.
At the end of last year, we were excited to bring Anson on as a partner at Camp 4. It’s hard to say what he’s best at or what he brings to the table, because saying “everything” doesn’t really provide much information. I’ve never met a guy who functions at such a high level directing, shooting, editing, color correcting, lighting, writing, geeking on audio equipment / computer components / editing software, understanding tax law, structuring businesses, managing people, thinking about music composition, building pyrotechnics and on and on and on. The guy is straight up a force of nature. Born and raised on a ranch in Colorado and often found kickin’ it in his cowboy boots if he’s not raging on a mountain bike, Anson seems an unlikely candidate for being the ultimate renaissance man, but he is.
Check out his latest reel above and a couple other film shorts that he’s put together this year:
