Agreed. I'm looking forward to it, but there should have been way more skiing. a 5 minute trailer is pretty long to hold my attention, and if it hadn't been for the fact that I've seen and been stoked on that crews stuff in the past, I probably wouldn't have made it to the end.
Seriously, I know you guys are people, and you're probably chill, nice, etc. but when i get a ski movie, I really don't want to watch you discussing the complexities of your life with yourself, in a studio. It's a sports movie, not a documentary or talk show. It seems like they feel the need to justify what they are doing and make it something more legitimate than what it is (not that skiing isn't totally legit; it has a ton of value, but they seem to be trying to make it somehow more complex or something, I don't really know haw to explain it).
I appreciate the showing of the whole picture thing (Pep summed it up fairly well at the end of that 2 minute long waste of time that could have been condensed into 15-30 seconds) but don't try to make it more than it is: skiing is skiing, it's dope and very good mentally and physically, etc. there is no need to get all philosophical about the greatness of the social experience and your connection to nature. If it's important to you, incorporate that subtly through your style and well integrated shots/discussion or voice over, but don't spend a bunch of time doing monologues in a studio. If the trailer is a good representation of what to expect from the final product (which I think it should be, or even maybe provide an optimistic view of what's to come) then there should be about 20% skiing max in this "ski" film.
No disrespect, but really: you're skiers and maybe film makers, so stick to that and leave the philosophy to philosophers, or do it when you're chillin and high, but take up half your movie with it.
I guess it's hard to keep up with expectations when you've made such an impact and have really pushed so many things in a new direction (webisodes, their style and approach to skiing, popularizing the shit out of backcountry, etc.).
Nonetheless, looks like a super sick film and may well be the best for the coming season (that is not a pessimistic comment). I'm looking forward to it.
