Just released this persuasive video: a look at the creative opportunities for entrepreneurship encouraged by Montana State University - the close association of MSU faculty with Montana business leaders that fosters a unique atmosphere for students interested in new ventures. A Co-production by Wimberg Productions and No Excuses Productions.
Wimberg Productions interviewed Captain Jack Hudspeth in Big Sky, Montana, for a Spanish documentary examining the causes and responsibilities surrounding a Spanair plane crash that killed 154 people in August of 2008. The interview was a critical piece of the story for Madrid based production company, El Torreon de Sol, and they were on a tight deadline. The piece was discussed, shot, shipped and at arrived in Madrid offices on a three day schedule.

Wimberg Productions' historic avalanche footage was featured in the Daily Planet, Discovery Channel Canada, showing civil engineering professor Ed Adams and former students inside a shed during a small avalanche they set off in the Bridger Mountains for research purposes. Montana State University's Subzero Science and Engineering Research Facility was established in 2008 and simulates conditions that contribute to avalanches. The ultimate goal is to help predict avalanches, Adams said. Wimberg Productions periodically documents ongoing work with MSU's snow scientists.

Our main character, Brandi Roman, a 29 year old critical care nurse with early-onset Parkinson's disease made it her goal to summit the peak.
