James Dalrymple Documentary Demo Reel

I have had the privilege over the last several years to travel the world shooting and producing short documentary films. I have been in over 65 countries on every continent except Antarctica. I have had marvelous experiences, made friends, tasted  exotic foods, seen incredible sights and experienced my own personal miracles. I hope to continue traveling and filming throughout the world. I may yet make it to Antarctica. In the mean time, I thought I would post a selected montage reel, with the musical help of Bono and U2. I didn’t ask their permission. If Bono asks me to change the music I will 🙂


I also would like to credit two of my very talented friends who traveled with me to many of these countries: Tom Garner and Curtis Anderson. They are incredibly talented cinematographers and filmmakers. Some of the shots in this reel belong to them; although, I don’t remember which ones. Sorry Guys.

I hope you enjoy the reel. Let me know what you think.

The Navajo Hopi Gardening Project

What an amazing experience–spending time on the Navajo/Hopi reservation in Arizona. The air is dry. The land is barren. Yet, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is working with the Native American population to cause the desert to blossom as the rose. The Navajo Hopi Gardening project is teaching Native Americans the skills to be self-sufficient by growing their own food. This project is helping these people return to their roots of living off the land. In the process, many lives are changing, as the barren land yields marvelous fruits. Check out this short documentary film I was privileged to work on.
