People & Peaks Productions creates documentaries that focus on traditional knowledge and landscapes of Alberta’s eastern slopes. Powerful stories are set in the outstanding scenery of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The goal of the production company is to educate the viewers about the unique culture and history, flora and fauna of Willmore Wilderness Park and surrounding areas.
The production company thrives in a physically-demanding environment, including some of the most unexplored areas of the Rockies. Access is gained by saddle and pack horses. The productions are set in stunning vistas, with original musical scores and scripts that are written using historical records, to create stories about the unique mountain culture, traditions and history of the Canadian Rockies.
Resources include both ground and aerial HD film footage of Willmore Wilderness Park; 1940s Carnegie Institute archival footage of Willmore Wilderness Park; and 1940s archival footage of Ishbel (Hargreaves) Cochrane, who homesteaded Mount Robson Ranch, showing Willmore Wilderness Park, Mount Robson Park and Jasper National Park. Resources also include original journals and letters documenting early travels in the Canadian Rockies. This collection includes many hundreds of photographs of the early mountaineers who traveled with the old-time outfitters. None of this huge resource of archival material has ever been published.
