Hey National Show Goers!
I’m sure you’re all psyched to see where you’ll be this July and I have a sneak preview for you! Three photos taken in the barns where goats will be held at the Ranch. Of course, there will be goat pens instead of horse stalls, and the event manager at The Ranch said they will likely have all the doors open during the show. But you get the idea. For more pics, check out The Ranch’s website: http://www.larimer.org/theranch/

“Goat Show,” a yet-to-be titled documentary about goat showing, is a work in progress by dream team Helena Bowen, Trevor Taylor and Julian Broudy.
Helena Bowen, professional camera assistant and aspiring DP, is the so-called “brains of the operation.” She has the goat-show know-how, the documentary experience and the drive to turn this crazy culture into a fascinating story. She’s a director, she’s a producer, she’s a camera operator, she’s an editor, she’s a bird AND a plane.
Trevor Taylor, professional camera assistant and aspiring DP, is all about making this documentary look AMAZING. Trevor was born with a camera in his hands and makes beautiful images like it was his job (and it is). Trevor knows absolutely nothing about goat-showing or goats but is stoked for the experience.
Julian Broudy, camera assistant by mandate / association and aspiring screenwriter/director, is in charge of keeping Helena and Trevor in check. What is a beautiful movie without an amazing plot? (The Tree of Life, but that’s another story.) Julian’s job is to help Helena and Trevor craft insane amounts of footage into a fun story. He is also the dedicated morale booster.
