Aloha from Poor Boyz Productions!

It’s been a busy summer, but all the hard work, sleepless nights, cheese sticks, early surfs, and empty Jameson bottles have paid off. The Poor Boyz movie lineup is finally complete, and we couldn’t be more stoked on the results. We are confident that these movies will scratch that preseason itch everyone is feeling right now as we all wait for winter. Hang in there. We consider Reasons to be our best work in years, but don’t take our word for it…

This past weekend marked the second annual International Freeskiing Film Fest (IF3) in Montreal, where the Poor Boyz lineup impressed audiences and judges alike. Reasons dominated the festival, bringing home four of the top awards:

-IF3 Best Trick

-IF3 Best Single Shot

-IF3 Best Editing

-IF3 Best Pro Movie

Close runners up for movie of the year were Jeff Thomas and Theory-3 Media’s JOURNAL, as well as HUNTING YETI by Nimbus Independent. Both of these movies were made in association with Poor Boyz and will be shown across the country in the form of our world premiere tour:
