our BIO's

Eli and Kelly Pyke are a husband and wife team, who each possess very different yet equally valuable skills.  They've been producing content together for over ten years, and learn more about one another and their trade on every project.

ELI

Eli's passion for film and video began in 1997, with the advent of digital video editing.  He saw the power of the moving image to touch people's hearts, draw tears, motivate, and inspire.  He attended film school at Montana State University, and finished at Oregon State University with degrees in Communications and Spanish.  The majority of his training has been on the job, mentoring under a handful of amazing producers and cinematographers. He hopes that his productions will inspire others to live more fully, free, and alive.

 

When not in production mode, he loves spending time with his wife, son, daughter, and dog.  When time permits he will climb in a kayak and run some crystal clear whitewater, or don his crampons and ice ax in the high Cascades.

KELLY

Kelly has a huge heart for people: connecting with people, helping and encouraging people, even teaching people.  She also has incredible administrative talents, an eye for photography and editing, and a genuine desire to impact the world for good.  She puts it all to good use as a co-producer.  She often arranges travel schedules, coordinates details with clients, and gives approval of every production that goes out the door.

 

Kelly is also a wilderness medicine instructor for NOLS WMI, she's a Wilderness EMT, and has spent years in the non-profit world as a ministry director for Young Life, Ransomed Heart, and local churches.  She was also a backpacking guide for many years, and will carry a 50-pound pack any day she gets the opportunity.
