New Mexico has always been defined by the beauty of its landscapes—by past generations who carved out a living from it, and by the next generation that seeks adventure in its folds. Wild Territory merges those worlds with one of our generation’s most iconic voices.

The adventure of shooting Wild Territory took us throughout the state, from the
Bosque del Apache, to the Florida Mountains, and into iconic New Mexico ranches. We explored the Puye Cliff Dwellings on the Santa Clara Pueblo, and filmed the elk rut in Valles Caldera, flew the Taos Gorge, and scaled the sheer cliffs of Diablo Canyon.
