RudyGarmischI've never been to a Warren Miller movie premiere. I miss Poor Boyz Productions and Toy Soldier Productions premieres.
WME makes a forgettable mainstream ski stoke film every year. I'd rather give my money and attention to people with more insightful vision of cinematography and athletes who are hungry and interesting.
I went to 1 in 06. It was okay. The vibe was decent enough, it was at one of my favorite theaters in the country. But still nothing on a real ski movie, that vibe and energy. Watching some of the level 1, meatheads films, etc premiers was way better.
Having a ski movie to get stoked for winter is great, hoping more legit brands get bigger coverage. I mean they do have the setup for some of them to do your own premiers and grow it. I had some issues at a couple places I worked and wasn't able to make it happen but hoping more people take advantage of that shit. Even if it isn't an official stop with the whole crew from the movie and gear and stuff, it's still all the homies and random shredder from the region just getting stoked and that's more than enough.
I usually miss the premiers these days in transition between seasons, but I def check out the schedules and try to make one if I can.
