It's so true though, every skier thinks they have this fresh "new" idea and wants to be a producer.
Look at tanner, and TBP. The entire idea of his "film company" is to stray away from traditional ski videos, and do something different. How was WSKI106 any different aside from evan raps cheesing acting in a radio show. All of MSP's movies have gay ass themes too. Yearbook, Hitlist? WSKI and PYB were corny as fuck, and I hated them for that. The skiing on the other hand was filthy.
I hope "Idea" won't be another piece of shit "Doing something new" movie. I hope it actually is something revolutionary, because from what i've read it looks pretty good. With the idea of following 3 athletes around, rather than 12 here and there seems way more interesting to me.
That was awesome, i just like the way they talk about skiing after lunch for a couple hours and then wanting a beer, which i think is the story of all the out of shape skiers that have real jobs, they should make real video
just an update:
today we killed it! it was Founder Todd Jones, his wife shelly, web guy Chris Dunn, Supervising producer Josh Nielsen, Marketing guy Chad Jackson, Sales guy Justin York, tour guy David "dudie" Hudaksco, Founder Corey Gavitt, and myself. And we threw down pretty hard! unfortunately we didn't shoot any of it. because shooting yourself as a starring athlete is fuckin hard man!! i should have brought along the helmet cam.
Tanners the fucking man, i bet he savess sooooo much money by producing it himself and he has full control of everything
Rather than overpay some dumbass who wont listen to any of your ideas.
All Tanner has to do is hire his own film crew.....and go from there
yeah, screw the big production companies. Getting your footage on NBC and showtime and that gay ass FUEL TV show Untracked, or matchsticks TV show focused. Why even shoot a movie in HD, super 16mm and 35mm. and screw them for finding and shooting these guys and making them famous in the first place. Whatever poor boys, for distributing a shit load of films made by unknown filmmakers. Seriously, the little guy is always getting screwed.

Its attitudes like this that piss me off.
You think your "corporation" is the reason these pros are famous? LOL
STFU. No, it is each individuals hard work and hours of practicing and coaching that got him/her to where they are. If your company didnt film them, someone else will guaranteed, so in reality, you need the riders or you dont have shit. What are you going to do with a bunch of expensive ass film equipment with no riders that want to film with you? The skiers will keep skiing no matter what, if your film is running or not.
Any mother fucker can buy a camera and film and produce DVD's these days with the right amount of money. In my opinion, we dont need companies like MSP anymore.
Why the fuck do you think more and more people are either producing their own videos or filming for the smaller companies? Because they dont want to deal with the bullshit that comes along with these cookie cutter filming companies.
So what you film in HD, 16mm, etc...as long as the shot is clear, i dont think people care.
