Alright so i know i posted this awhile back, but didnt get alot of response. Lately myself have gotten board of the ordinary ski movies with skiing to music and the normal documentary like ski films that you always see.
So i had the idea to throw a plot into a ski movie, instead of just skiing to music. Yes there is still skiing to music in the film, but there is an underlying plot, with decent skier acting, and a really good moral to the film if you pick it up. Now its only a short 5 minute film that i made for a competition called The Beating. And that was the max amount of time the film could be. So basically i made this story actually tie into the skiing and put in a moral that ties into our sport. You've also seen ski films like this that dont even lead into the skiing whatsoever, so i tried really hard to make the viewer feel like they were watching a movie with skiing rather than just another ski movie.
The idea of the story is based around 5 athletes that are all from the Crested Butte area, and in a way with skiing at some point i think we all experience the I want to be pro/sponsored phase, and forget why we ski. So i named the short "paranoiattack". The idea is that all the skiers are sort of lost and running around and find themselves since alot of us get lost in the scene, and craziness of the sport. So the skiers are running around in there daily lives and sort of feel like they're being followed, or that someone is in the background watching them. Which in the end they find its themselves they were seeing the whole entire time. And realizing they've changed and become something different. The people in the background are themselves in there outerwear and are supposed to represent the fun that we have while skiing. While the other character the ones depicted in ski clothing represent themselves as they are caught in the hype of the sport and living at such a fast pace that they fall behind and cant catchup, or remember the fun they used to have. So in the end them finding themselves represents them being reminded that skiing is about fun and why we do what we do on a daily basis.
Sorry if any of this was repetetive i'm just trying to make a point and make sure you guys understand the short. So again let me know if this is something you guys would like to see in the future of ski films! Thanks! Here they are:
