49: Hilary Oliver on Giving Women in the Outdoors Voice Through Filmmaking

Episode description

Hilary Oliver is a writer, editor and filmmaker. She makes outdoor films for brands such as REI, Outdoor Research and Yeti Cycles. Her mission is to give voice to women in the outdoors  - to showcase a perspective deeper than physical achievement alone. Her work includes Above the Fray with Beth Rodden and How to Run 100 miles with Brandon Leonard for REI.

She loves filmmaking and is driven to do it but the thing is, it doesn’t pay the bills. Don’t get me wrong, she makes money but it’s not her bread and butter. What is? Her work as a  freelance writer and editor of the Outdoor Research blog. 

Today, we’re going to talk about doing your craft because you love it, not because it pays the bills. How fulfilling it is to be involved in something you love and removing the pressure of making money doing it - how that impacts the experience of making it and the outcome. Hilary will share how she broke into freelance writing and then parlayed that into film making. 

But we’ll also talk about finding stories and giving voice to women in the outdoors. I hope today’s episode will inspire you if you to pursue things because you want to, not because you want to get rich doing it.

With that, let’s listen in and gear up for what’s next:
