To everyone who contributed information, sorry it took so long to get this up! If you need to update any info on your video, please put it in the comments at the bottom!

By Ethan Stone for Newschoolers.com

As temperatures rise, the film bitches of the ski world are busy at work putting together footage from the winterÂ’s madness into a whole new slew of ski movies, due out this summer and fall. Although they might not have the equipment or the training of big-time filmers like PBP, MSP and TGR, Newschoolers.com members from around the North American continent are responsible for regional videos showcasing up-and-coming riders in their area. These low-key productions can give a whole new perspective on the rapidly changing newschool scene. ItÂ’s always worth checking out new films and new skiers, and you never know... you could be missing the next Tanner Hall, filmed by the next Scott Gaffney. These productions are worth a look.

EAST COAST

WBP Films - The Parking Lot Episode

*Watch the trailer*

Representing the East Coast, Pat Melvin (IceRider)Â’s White Boy Productions has been filming in New Hampshire and Maine for three years. This yearÂ’s release, The Parking Lot Episode, will show off the skills of Pat Melvin, Brandon Lonstein, Peter Kukesh, James Cody, Greg Ruppel, Jake Farrell, Mike Damast, and others.

H3O Films - GWYNE

contact: NS member h3ofilms

H3O will be releasing a 16mm/digital video featuring major East Coast competitions and riders like Crichton, Mike Nick, Scott Hibbert, and Andy Woods. A website and trailer should be coming soon.

Junction 133 Productions - Rural Uproar

*Watch the trailer*

Shot and edited by Duncan Lake (skodeo7), Rural Uproar captures last winterÂ’s action at Stratton, Bromley, Mt. Snow, Killington, and other locations in New England. While the movie also has snowboard footage, skiers will include Derek Klick, Cameron Klick, and Liam Downey. Contact powdr13@hotmail.com if youÂ’re interested in a copy.

PAT Productions - White Fingertips

http://www.PATProductions.com

Although the title makes me think of Michael Jackson, this movie might not be so bad. Actually, it might actually be pretty good. I mean, Thriller revolutionized music as we know it... and there isnÂ’t a man alive who doesnÂ’t envy the moonwalk. Check out Bryan Gallant, Teddy Blank, Brandon Cove, Patrick Warner, and others in a MJ-inspired flick filmed across the East Coast. Featured locations include Wachusett Mtn., Massachusetts, Mt. Tremblant, Quebec, and Okemo, Vermont. White Fingertips ships July 15 for five bucks (DVD only).

MIDWEST

Freezing Point 32 - Awkward Floating, Random Flailing Big Pile of Crap that is our Movie

*Watch the trailer*

http://www.freezingpoint32.com

Okay, so maybe they donÂ’t have the best judgement in titles. Nevertheless, this will be FP32's fourth movie to date, so it canÂ’t be that bad. Actually, Freezing Point showcases some of the MidwestÂ’s better talent out of IndianaÂ’s Perfect North Slopes. Footage has also been shot at Paoli Peaks, Snowtrails, Ohio, and Boyne Highlands, Michigan, and the FP crew will be out in force at Whistler this summer. Tom Price, Travis & Tad Feiss, Adam Weaver, Stephen Osborn, Craig Moore, Nick Bourquein, Alex Norton, Becca Sedler, and Stephanie Osborn are just some of the riders who will be shown. Any crew with two chicks that rip definitely gets my vote.

Saw Kaw Films - The State of Michigan v. Teddy Knape

*Watch last yearÂ’s trailer*

http://www.sawkawfilms.netfirms.com

Headed by Teddy Knape, Saw Kaw captures park and backcountry action at Michigan resorts like Crystal Mountain, Cannonsburg, Boyne, Caberfae Peaks, and others. Riders include Lane Karczewski, Teddy Knape, Brett Weiss, Peter Knape, Noah Schwander, Brian Knoch, Jim Knape, Mike Knape, Alex Degraff, Ethan Stone, Tyler Barnes, and a sick Utah section from Pete Proos. No trailer is available right now, but check out the trailer for last yearÂ’s flick, Sanity. And if you want to know the story behind the name, click here.

FARP

This could possibly be one of the biggest skiing movie breakthroughs since Warren Miller first picked up a camera. No, since skiing was invented. Hell, FARP might be the biggest thing since the wheel. Check out the trailer for Fred and Randall ProductionÂ’s inaugural movie, and prepare your mind to be blown.

MATH Team Films - Kiss the Sky

*Watch the old trailer*

email: MathTeamFilms@hotmail.com

The MATH Team is losing its film-making cherry this year with the release of "Kiss the Sky." I gotta be honest, even if the vid sucks, they still kick ass for naming it after Hendrix lyrics. Or maybe theyÂ’re all just potheads.... Anyway, MATH is out to showcase mid-Michigan skiers and snowboarders Chad Khodl, Jordan Fischer, Pat Jones, Andrew Berwald, Mark Thatcher, Tucker Vantol, Taylor Rymal, Scott Reay, Jake Pimm, Jared Talaga and Randall Schultz. The team picked up footage from Crystal Mountain, Kitchel Dunes, and Grand Havens in Michigan, and also some Colorado action from Keystone, Breck, and Vail. IÂ’m warned that this trailer is an old one, and the link to the new trailer will be posted in the comments of this article as soon as itÂ’s done. Rock on, Jimi!

WEST

Josh Bryant of Cracked Lens Productions and Jamin Kimmel of NOMICS Inc. team up with Jibij.com to present another Colorado production, with shots from the likes of Vail, Beaver Creek, Breck, Keystone, Copper, and Winter Park.

Penguin Milk Project - Speshul

http://www.penguinmilk.com

From the twisted mind of Matt Schwagler comes “SpeshulÂâ€?, a video filmed up and down the West Coast from Mammoth to Whistler (and with East Coast footage to boot). Riders include Andy Mahre, Ben Larsen, Loka$h, Chris Brawley, Jeff Harrison, John Symms, and Brandon Becker. If you liked "In the Haze," then Penguin Milk should tweak your nipples.

Easy Rider

The Easy Rider video will be premiering this fall at the Princess Theatre in Edmonton. ItÂ’ll feature skiers Matt Hennig and Jackson Hinton, snowboarders Andrew Jackson and Warren Williams, and many more. And if skiing and boarding doesnÂ’t get your bowels moving, thereÂ’s some wake and skateboarding as well.
