Oregon’s Water Colors, Directed by John Pings (Oregon) - "Oregon's Water Colors" (2020) is a short nature and adventure film of waterscapes in Oregon and their colorful scenery. This film visits Ashland Creek, Mackenzie River, Deschutes River and 2 forks of the Umpqua River. Twenty-three minutes of what "Living In Oregon" means to me. “Oregon’s Water Colors” takes us from upland waters in Southern & Central Oregon to one of The West’s majestic & relatively unspoiled rivers, the Umpqua. The film also seeks to share nature’s beauty from a passive perspective ... continuing through the film to evolve to a more active, hopefully respectful, human presence. The filmmaker wishes to convey the idea that Nature is Beautiful, Go See It! & Take Your Fishing Pole! There's whitewater kayaking on the Class IV Rapid "RiverHouse Run" in Bend, OR and steelhead fishing on the Main & North Forks Umpqua River too! Enjoy the Film! "If you can't be here, we'll bring it to you!" My Film "Oregon's Water Colors" is dedicated to my Pal, Peter Gamba, who contracted COVID-19 and passed away in March, 2020. Peter was a good friend and fellow with an occasional golf round mixed in too! Peter was a first class media editor at Shed, a man who led by example and inspired and encouraged me early during my development of my avocation of film. But mostly, Peter Gamba was a really, really good guy, a dedicated husband and devoted Father. He’ll be missed. When Peter passed, I channeled my grief energy to complete this film. Peter was with me the whole way. Screenings and awards for Oregon’s Water Colors are dedicated to his family and friends in his memory. Peace, JP.
