So lately i have been watching a lot of skateboardings epicly later'd series. The other night i was watching marc johnson's and he was talking about his part in fully flared and how passionate he was about putting out the best segment possible.
He was saying how he missed 4 out of his sons 7 birthdays because he was filming. And when the movie premiered and he saw his part he cried because he knew he gave it every thing he had.
when you watch that clip, every single shot is an absolute banger.
There are lots of differences just between the riding in skateboarding and skiing and the sheer number of trick combinations and places to skate in skateboarding. But do you think skiing will ever have parts like this? Where watching it gives you chills?
Level 1 and poorboyz i think need to put out movies every year because they are film companies and that is how they make money. Whereas these movies are sponsored by companies themselves and take years to make. Lot's of it is kept secret to build up anticipation.
I don't think i have ever been HYPED going into a ski movie and hyped leaving. You walk in expecting a lot, and lots of times during the movie i am kind of just staring at the screen watching what seems to be the same thing over and over again. Or i already have an idea of what is going to happen. Sammy's triple for example.
Marc's segment he gave it every thing he had. He sacraficed a lot to put together a segment like that. Years and years of footage, injuries etc. Not like some skiing movies where its, here is my 2 minute segment. It was shot in 2 days at snowpark and 1 night at the x-games.
Maybe there is a ski movie with years of footage that i am not aware of.
Not really sure where i am going with this just curious to what you guys think. Maybe you guys think ski movies are fine the way they are.
Going skiing, then drinking instantly after until i black the fuck out. - eheath
