Project Documentary Film

Filmmaker Karl Swingle is making a documentary film on the development of the Bozeman Ice Park and the first Ice Climbing World Cup to be held in the United States. As part of this project, he would like to track the progress of the student and alumni contestants participating in MSU’s Ice Climbing Structure Design competition. This is an opportunity to showcase your skills and creativity while playing a part of American Alpine Sport history!

Karl Swingle grew up in Bozeman and graduated from Montana State University in 1999. For the past decade he has worked professionally in film and television with a focus on Adventure Sports and Mountain Culture. He is making this film for competition in various Mountain Film festivals around the world.
