Do you not read the posts or just the parts that give you some thing to argue about.
Everyone knows there's not a lot of money in skiing, that's the point of making a team video, So companies can sell more skis and make more money.
It also just so happens that making a quality ski movie doesn't cost a lot of money. (voleurz, 4bi9, NewIntel, CASG edits) and on top of that there are plenty of companies that have plenty of money they could spend on such endeavors Yes, maybe not 4frnt but Line(owned by K2), K2, Atomic, Rossignol (Quicksilver), Head, and especially Soloman all have the means to make a good team movie but for some reason either don't, or make a 4.5 minute edit that they give away online for free. Instead of a short team edit make it into a full movie that can be sold in stores. And since you don't seem to have ever seen a team movie/ know what it is, it isn't just the company following their riders around all year. A lot of it is footage from other movies and interviews.
Joystick's came out last summer and it wasn't a team movie it was Anthony and his friends on a road trip. It was a concept movie about living the life of a pro skier and in particular a different side of pro skiing that people don't usually see. It was very good but not a real team video.
Go to Baker skateboards website and buy their team movie from last year, or Forum snowboards then you'll se what an actual team video is.
