Words by David Beck/Parimaj Media
We started the season without a real goal, just shooting stuff without knowing what we were going to do with it. Eventually a movie fell into place. The name "Album" came about from the idea that something cannot be completely understood without the whole of it being taken in. Even though ski movies are often just a montage of shots with no real continuity or progressing purpose, much like in music, an album does not have to follow continuity while still telling a story or giving a sense of arrival.
With Album, we bring you our footage from the 2010-11 ski season shot entirely in Minnesota and Wisconsin. This film features the skiing of Allen Lam, Austin Torvinen, Colton Welch, Matt Halverson, Steve Janisch, Joe Johnson, Christian Coughlan, David Beck, Kelly Karis, Josh Guslander, and friends. It was shot in the streets and on the hills of the Twin Cities, Duluth, and the surrounding areas.
