FilmTreks is a local venture that offers Filmmaking workshops. Last summer they taught a speed-filming course, where pairs of students produced a finished, short documentary in four days. Two of those students, Dave Kurz and Pat McMurtry, took me to Emigration Canyon, where I grew up. As we hiked around, they asked me questions and pointed cameras at me, resulting a couple of days later, in this film. The title, "Slithering Towards Gomorrah," they lifted from the reptile chapter of my book, Rigor Vitae. Despite their limited time constraints, I think they did a remarkable job of capturing my rambling, incoherent style of communicating.
