Tis the season for video premiers and the Academy is getting in on the action. Poor Boys Production, ?Revolver? swept through Portland and although it was scheduled for a school night, we managed to squeeze it in before bed time.

Snowboarders and skiiers alike attended the movie to meet their favorite athletes, check out their first video premier and get some inspiration for the upcoming season.  Poor Boys Production owned up to their reputation by delivering footage from all over the globe. Simon Dumont, Sammy Carlson and Tim Durtschi were just a few of the athletes to tear it up in Alaska, British Columbia, France and North America.

Academy students were pumped to get their first taste of what premier season has to offer. They were inspired to return to Mt. Hood and start perfecting their own moves and begin filming. Attending premiers has become a priority for the students as a well. Video screenings are a great opportunity to meet with industry people, have fun and get immersed into the ski and snowboard community.

?It was great to see the kids share their opinions amongst themselves. Students attending these premiers are important for our industry. They are the future and they have a say how the films are going to progress? commented Lisa Dougherty, student advisor at Windells Academy.  The Academy is filling their calendars with 2010-11 premier dates and we are pumped to see you there! You can bet by the end of this season Windells Academy students will be on their way to becoming film industry coinsures.
