yunginnesare you planning to make any sort of major film or movie?
It is not in our current plans, but never say never.
We like the webisode format and the fact that it is filmed within the season, although it can be very challenging with conditions. But Etienne is very creative and has always achieved amazing results when presented with impossible conditions.
We are developing some more film projects to go alongside We Are The Faction Collective that we hope to release and grow next season.
We thought of it. A full lenght Faction movie would be rad to make for sure, but for now we really enjoy producing our webisodes throughout the season and releasing them right away. As Beanie said, we're also working on others video projects to be released later on.
joelskiwould you ever do a full winter 55 min movie?
Or could you do a faction collective trip to somewhere interesting and new?
We are working with Gear4Guides and taking a trip to Kyrgyzstan in a few weeks, bringing along athletes Arnaud Rougier and Laurent Gauthier.
There they will work with G4G to bring over bunch of donated gear, visit local communities to teach skiing and snow safety, and also to explore the amazing surrounding big mountain terrain.
We hope to continue to this project with Gear4Guides in the future, collecting donated gear and traveling to interesting and new destinations every year.
Like Jesse says we have Kyrgyzstan coming up, which is not the usual destination. But we are always interested in discovering new places and are always open to suggestions.
I think it's important to not fall into the trap of believing that every film has to be in a crazier new place that you'll never, ever go in your wildest dreams without a rocket ship.
I look no further than the Candide clips and our #S01E03 in La Clusaz to think, that's a good mountain, but that could be your mountain, my mountain, we didn't need a fleet of helicopters to do that, and it was what skiing is about - awesome ripping, killing it, having a fricking great time.
Then again, there's a place for the crazy and new, but it's more about dreaming it up and creativity than impossibiliy to me - I mean, who the hell goes skiing in Kyrgyzstan where the lifts are your skins and mules - that's damn cool. But the funny thing is - you could probably do that. It costs nothing once you get the plane ticket in those places.
Rather than it being interesting just because it's new, I say it's what you do with it.
Feeling the same way as Alex. I don't want to go shooting somewhere only for the name of it or because it sounds exotic.
