they aren't BAD movies, but they are a BAD company. they do everything within their power to keep smaller companies down, smaller companies that they are afraid of, because they know they are capable of making movies that could compete with theirs, and within a few years, movie to movie, outshine them. so instead of focusing their efforts on making a better movies, their efforts go into manipulating sponsors to get money that was at one point going to be designated to small companies, manipulating sponsors to get athletes not INTO their films, but OUT of the smaller films, they focus efforts on getting smaller companies out competition by getting sponsors to not fund smaller companies, and then offer the head filmer of that smaller company more money to film for them, with that sponsor money gone they take the deal cause they don't have the money to make a good film anyhow without it. They do all this to because they know if they put their efforts into only making movies, they can't keep up with what is cool because they are fucking gay, and can't compete with their movies alone. alot of you will say 'that's business', but fuck that, skiing's best and most creative film makers can't get a decent budget for more than a year straight because of their constant bullshit.
alot of this shit has added up over the years, and alot of people don't support them for these reasons. they are doing a disservice to ski films as a whole, its not like they matchstick is super creative or innovative, you can expect the same stock movie every year, the only reason people many people buy them is because they want to see what their favorite riders did this year, not what msp did this year.
FUCK MSP, spend your money on rage films, level 1, theory 3. all three of which either are, or are becoming well rounded ski flicks. consider it an investment into quality films for the future.
any one of those companies, given even half of MSP's budget, would blow them out of the water.
pardon my rant, but seriously, fuck those guys, i want something new
