Virginia-based Gripped Films has announced a new documentary project in Alaska. The independent fill company previously released two critically acclaimed mountain biking documentaries, the Olympic dream driven “Off Road to Athens,” and “24 Solo,” a look at 24-hour solo world champion Chris Eatough.

But with their latest project Gripped will enter new territory, literally, when they head west to produce a short film aimed at preserving and protecting the delicate balance of culture, wildlife and resources in America’s largest national forest, the Tongass National Forest. Filming begins next month.
