MARC ANDRE BELLIVEAU STORY
In the spring of 2006, Belliveau was tragically paralyzed in a ski accident. After 8 years as a pro film skier and less than 6 months after injury, unable to stay off the snow, he came back on a sit ski. His inspirational return is captured on 16mm film in TGR’s newest release Lost and Found.
Marc Andre is an integral member of the TGR crew, he has had a staring role in the last 6 TGR movie releases including featured segment in the last 3 films, The Tangerine Dream, Anomaly, and this year his return to the snow in Lost and Found. This years film, Lost and Found showcases his heroic return in a Sit ski, which enables him to again hit big mountain backcountry lines, launch big airs and float through deep powder.
He will not only entertain us on screen but also with a live musical performance before the movie as the lead singer in the Marc Andre Belliveau Band

BANG CAMARO -
MTV News - "Kiss may have had their army, but Bang Camaro *is* the Army"
Bang Camaro is the biggest band exploding out of Boston with songs of finely crafted man-mayhem. They are causing a sensation armed with a five-piece band, colossal choruses, raging guitar solos, & twenty, yes, TWENTY lead singers!
The Boston Phoenix describes them as "Headbanger's Ball meets Polyphonic Spree." They mix strut, energy, and arena rock hooks with indie sensibilities, solid musicianship and blazing solos. If they are not leading the evolution of rock, it's only because they drank their way through Darwin 101.

LOST AND FOUND
From industry leader Teton Gravity Research comes a must have cinematic epic. Shot on 16mm and HD, LOST AND FOUND is the story of the extraordinary season of 2007 as seen through the eyes of world-class skiers and snowboarders. With global drought persisting and ski resorts closing around the world, athletes are forced to follow the snow, sending them deep into the uncharted north country of Alaska and Canada. Filmed almost entirely in North America, LOST AND FOUND is a testament to the terrain and conditions that only exist in the Western Hemisphere. This film will take you into the vast, unexplored Tordrillo Mountains of Alaska, proving that some of the best big mountain riding in the world is still completely undiscovered. Athletes take advantage of the bountiful winter in British Columbia, hit disturbing park features in Aspen and score over-the-head powder pillows at Skeena Heli skiing. The winter of 2007 was feast or famine; LOST AND FOUND documents the feast.
ATHLETES starring in the film are Marc Andre Belliveau, Seth MORRISON, Jeremy JONES, Sage CATTABRIGA-ALOSA, Ian McINTOSH, Candide THOVEX, Dash LONGE, Jeremy NOBIS, Erik RONER, Dana FLAHR, Chris COLLINS, and many more.
FILMED ON LOACATION AT Tordrillo Mountains AK, Skeena Heliskiing BC, Jackson Hole, Utah, Montana, Aspen, Pemberton BC, Kicking Horse BC, Austria and Switzerland.
