Synopsis: We need to learn from the past to avoid the same mistakes in the future. The short film, Ghost of Steelhead Future follows Oregon fishing guide, Jon Hazlett on a journey through the past. Connecting the extinction of the Atlantic salmon in Maine with the ever decreasing runs of Steelhead on the West coast – Jon sees first hand the warning signs and potential solutions to keep his rivers healthy for generations to come. Directors Statement: This is a concept we’ve been scheming on for a few years. It’s a story about the steelhead fishery on the West coast when viewed through the lens of what happened to the Atlantic salmon on the East coast. We wanted it to be funny, fishy but still really sad – let’s not repeat the same mistakes we’ve already made.

Graduating from the University of Montana with a degree in Environmental Studies and a concentration in Photojournalism profoundly shaped his worldview and sense of aesthetic. Working with amazing companies such as Patagonia, Orvis and Howler Bros on a collection of adventure documentaries cemented RC’s love for outdoor cinema and the connections it creates. He and his camera have travelled around four continents and dream everyday of new adventures.
