Our Land - Traversing Oregon is a story of an overland journey across Oregon's highly varied public lands, to highlight the qualitative and quantitative value of such areas, in light of recent political developments that are threatening to take them away. From west to east, wildlife biologist and outdoor addict Jason Fitzgibbon, set out with cinematographer Octave Zangs to sample some of the state's most rugged coastlines, its finest trails, and its wildest rivers, in an effort to enjoy and share some of the ecological resources, recreational opportunities, and priceless experiences that can be found in our threatened federal lands.

What type of world would we live in if there were no sagebrush steppe left for the antelope to roam, if our pine forests were felled before they could grow old, if streams never made it to the sea, if the “weekend getaway” was a revered story of the past? At this moment, many of these places are still ours, accessible for our enjoyment; to ride, to hike, to fish, to camp, to appreciate. Unfortunately, however, it is never completely guaranteed to stay that way.

To learn more about how you can contribute to protect our public lands, please visit Our Land Film’s website.

Jason wrote a complete tale of this adventure that you can see here.

Our Land Film Poster.

This piece was filmed over a period of two weeks, utilizing an original blend of terrestrial, underwater and aerial footage recorded with our RED Epic Dragon. Timelapse footage was obtained with our Syrp Genie. F-Stop backpacks allowed us to each rig up with more than 50 lbs of gear before hopping on our mountain bikes to access many of our remote filming locations.

To keep our load and our footprint as light as possible, we chose to forego using a gas generator to keep our equipment charged, and instead utilized Goal Zero's solar panels and Yeti Battery to keep us running comfortably on the power of the sun.

Ambient, wildlife, and various other sounds were recorded on location. The final cut includes songs and calls from more than 59 species of birds and fully unique soundscapes from each location.

Our post-production workflow (editing/color grading/sound) was handled in 4K from beginning to delivery in our own production studio. An entirely original soundtrack was composed in-house as well.

 This video was so good that I almost forgot that "our land" has become "Drumpf Land"...

 Our land is possibly gone in the next 4 years... looking ahead at his environmental policy. It was a good run while it lasted.

Do some reading before you call me ignorant and assume I don't know what I'm talking about. I made a statement and left it at that you can read for yourself and form your own opinions. It remains to be seen what happens. Have a good day and please don't insult people without proper grounds or justification.

 @Shniicky: The EPA sucks. Really sucks. Done more harm than good. I consider myself very concerned about the environment and I'm also getting this information from insider sources who have worked with and for the EPA, as well as people who study environmental policy. It's a common misconception that the federal government protects the environment, but it really only makes matters worse. Without getting too political, neither of the possible wnners of this recent election would be a good choice for the environment; a good choice for the environment is getting communities involved and really pressing the message that if we want to keep our modern lifestyles, they need to change.

If anyone is actually interested in this, feel free to message me, but the jist of it is that we need to get our communities here to stop wasting resources and polluting and become more sustainable. This also means battling with government to allow things like off the grid living, smaller homes, rainwater collection, better bike commuter infrastructure etc etc. It also means that we need to set the example for the rest of the world - there are 5 billion other people who are nearly as developed or getting close to us, and they will (rightfully) want their cushy amenities like we have had ours. Regulating ourselves into regression will not set an example that China or India readily wants to follow. Using less, saving more, and being sustainable by changing our markets and culture and creating a cleaner, safer future WILL.

 To those justifiably trying to take solace in state and local reform in the face of a major federal shift - the majority of the west's wilderness is federal land (FS and BLM), which he plans sell off to the highest bidder. And it doesn't matter if your favorite trails remain protected under local government when all the emission standards are rolled back and he champions "clean" coal and other fossil fuels - that pollution won't stop at state/county/city lines. There's no version of this presidency that doesn't dramatically harm mountain biking.
  • + 1
 @OFF2theGYM: an all republican congress will allow federal lands to go to states. The states turn around and sell it to balance budget and claim how fisxally responsible they are. A bill passed in AZ last year that allows the state to sell state land trusts. When a western state became a state back when, the feds gave them alot of land to manage: state trust lands. The ball is in motion now. Pay attention!

 @trialsracer: I'm sorry but the EPA does not suck and it has done almost all good. We wouldn't have half the trails we ride in the US with out the EPA. The EPA regulates illegal building and extraction of natural resources and if it didn't regulate these things, half of your wild life that we have left would not be here. I agree with you that things need to change and we should become more of a minimalistic species then the petty one we are now, but please don't insult something that has actually done a lot more good than people think. You also might be wondering what's this 17 years old kids bases, well my dad is a public lawyer for the EPA and his job is to ensure that no harm is done to our national forests what so ever. How is that a bad thing and how does that suck.

 These lands are beautiful, valuable and would make handsome real-estate to any millionaire looking to build a private getaway in this mountainous paradise. Because president elect Butt Hole doesn't give a rats ass about the environment or preservation these trails and public lands will soon turn into a memory for those lucky enough to capture one or two...

 @Ptownoriginal: Exactly. How soon we forget (or ignorantly never knew) that this country was founded as a Republic, *not* a Democracy. There are big differences and most pertinent here is the concept of filtered consent. You vote for your local and state representatives. These representatives represent you at the state and federal level. The only way to enact real change is to vote in the right people at the local level. They're the only people that help your voice be heard. The executive and judicial branches are not elected to hear your voice. If you're unwilling to engage in this part of the political process (local and state campaigns and elections) then you have no reason to complain, whether it's a narcissist or criminal that gets elected.

Yeah I hear you on the Land Cruiser.

Very nicely done film and such beautiful cinematography! As there are many things to talk about in this film, being a music guy, I couldn't help notice Octave did all the music except the last song. I would have sworn that piece at around 4 minutes was Queens of the Stone Age...

 I hate to say it. But any vote for a republican is a vote to take away your trails. I'm sorry but that's the way of it. I know that a lot of you out there reading this are republican.

 Very nice piece. Nice hitting three topics: overlanding, fly fishing and mtb. It also added to the piece your knowledge of birds, bugs, fish and other wildlife. Biologist, or Env consultants by chance? How about a few specifics. It looks like an 88 or 89 LC. 31 or 33s? OME lift? Custom rear bumper? Camp tables brand? How about a photo or two of the rear setup for storage? I have an 88 on 33s with the medium OME. My one-up is sitting by itself without a rear bumper like yours. Thanks for posting.

 Thanks so much, I'm honored you picked up on the wildlife aspect. And yes, I am a wildlife biologist/consultant so I couldn't help but include that info in the narrative. Props for figuring me out!

As for the truck, it belongs to the cinematographer, Octave, so I don't know much about it other than I wish it was mine, haha. I'm sure if you hit him up on Instagram (@octave) he could answer all of your questions.

 Ok, inspiration is screaming at me. I do an annual riding trip in the Alps, mostly France.

 Great film! I think it really captures the 'slow' little aspects of a road trip Smile Loved the cinematography and how the storyline was so observant (and informed) about the natural surroundings

A few points in the film had a tad too much product placement and 'gear overload' for my liking, but I guess the film makers need to make money somehow... but I think the net gear cost of all the stuff features in that films was like $100k

- Yeti mountain bike: $10k
- ARB bumper and winch: $3k
- ARB rear bumper: $1k
...

I always appreciate when I see films promoting simple living and showcase people doing unreal adventures with less - makes it more accessible.

 Thanks so much for your feedback man, glad you didn't mind my biological drawling in the narrative. And point taken about the gear. We didn't realize how snazzy of a combo we'd have once we matched up my bike with his truck Blank Stare Thanks for watching though and taking the time to comment, hopefully the nice gear didn't rob from the much more important message.

 Great video but seriously, way too much Slo-mo in my opinion. Almost everything these guys are doing is in Slo-Mo...
-Slo-Mo driving the Land Cruiser
-Slo-Mo fishing
-Slo-Mo diving
-Slo-Mo walking on the beach/in the forest
-Slo-Mo opening/closing the trunk
-Slo-Mo pouring beer in a glass
-Slo-Mo puting some air in the fork...

Your video could length 10 min instead of 17 and be twice as good Smile

 Great video, also the finest peacocking display of gear I've ever seen. Holy shit, I get the point of the video, but about half way through all I could think about was the sound of a cash register at every new scene. 4 wheeling, surfing, camping, biking, fly fishing, money money money. From the battery powered cooler and cargo glides to the 10k bikes. Very jealous.

 I liked the video but I really have to say, I hated the narrative. It sounded like someone was reading a 6th grade essay assignment entitled "use DESCRIPTIVE imagery to tell us about your trip". Some frank interviews on each spot would have been way better than the awkwardly written voice over. Also, not to be a douche, but the mispronunciations and grammatical faux pas were cringe-worthy at times... "myriad bugs" for example (should be myriad OF bugs, but average language would have sufficed). I just wanted to give my constructive criticism; I watched it with two other people and they noticed the same thing.

I REALLY enjoyed the filming and the concept. It was top notch and a great idea.
  • + 3
 I agree that the narrative was overwrought. But myriad can be an adjective or a noun, so his use was pretentious but not incorrect. Great video though.
  • + 2
 Myriad bugs is right, myriad of bugs is wrong.
  • + 0
 @GeorgeHayduke: both are correct.

@stalkinghorse you are right, I was wrongly under the impression that myriad as an adjective shouldn't be used in that context, but thinking about it, it's just that it is more commonly used in certain fashions as an adjective and in others as a noun (e.g. "the myriad lights of Paris" vs "a myriad of fruits on the table".)

 @"(....)in light of recent political developments that are threatening to take them away." take them away from whom?
nature belongs to nature. the porpose of nature isn't man nor surfing, nor biking nor setting up a BQ, nor driving a landrover through the forest. nature is nobodies consumer good. it has an end in itself. shredding it's trails isn't a salvational necessity.
  • + 2
 In the US a lot of our federal, public land is currently at risk of being privatized and sold off for mineral and resource extraction. In which case, nature is destroyed, and less importantly, we are no longer able to enjoy it. Since the greater public doesn't often respond well to simply protecting nature (especially when the economy is involved) we shot this project with the intention of showing how valuable the land is to multiple user groups. We basically need more people and more reasons to get politicians on board with protecting the land.

 No its not. This was about showcasing expensive toys and glorifying an agenda. Don't get me wrong, I agree with the agenda. But having 100 grand tied up in a Land Cruiser, bikes, fly gear, surf boards, and cameras isn't what riding bikes is about. Far from it actually. Biking is about the 99% of us that just grab our bike and get some exercise after work.

Pouring beer from a bottle into an over priced stainless steel mug IN SLOW MOTION? Ugh, pretentious much?

 @profro: Hey! My Yeti is worth twice as much as my old ass Subaru, and that beer deserves to be poured! Wink But seriously, I'm just a dude that rides after work too, but we needed to enlist the support of some of our favorite gear manufacturers to get this message out, and we're honored that they helped us. Please forgive us ????

 @jasonfitzgibbon: The irony is that I have a 80 Series Land Cruiser, fly fish, and have a Yeti (albeit an old aluminum one). I just sort of checked out when I see all this top end stuff being so blatantly being showed off in slowmo. Ive sort of tipped a point in my life where I am trying to do more with less versus less with more. Its all to easy getting caught up in the fancy carbon bike, roof top tents, ARB refrigerators, and think you need all this stuff to enjoy the outdoors.

As I said, I totally support your cause as I too worry about my East Tennessee trail and trout access. I just don't like the message getting hidden amongst the gratuitous product placement. Something has happened in recent years that is making mountain biking really, really expensive and its sad. I would have rather seen the same cinematography of you in you old ass Subaru, stinky/old riding clothes, and on a bike that wasn't worth more than 2 months pay. Thats a perspective that the rest of us can relate to. Just my preference. Carry on.
