Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
1. How much creative control did Mike Rogge actually have on this project? Did he have a primary role in the message of the flick or was he basically there as more of an interpreter?
2. Any interest in doing a broader project that actually deals with the sport itself, its birth, growth and development rather than just providing a window into the Sochi preparations of a few US athletes?
3. Further to number two, was this originally intended to be a broder piece? If not, why was it packaged as such? A lot of the disappointment and negative reaction seems to me to be a result of the film suggesting it was going to be about freeskiing, and turning out to be a lengthy athlete profile. Was it just bungled marketing, or was the content you ended up with not able to fulfill the original vision?
