With summer in full swing I can't help but wonder how I can go about filming and editing my next film project (TBR fall 2022). The past decade has seen some impressive and really creative projects. The bunch, HG (RIP), LTC, Inspired Media, Zoot space, and Stept has been at the forefront of creativity and progressive video projects that, as well as other lesser known crews, has influenced myself to get behind the lens and do something different.
In my opinion, there seems to be a divide between those films and Level 1, PBP, Carnage, Forre, Strictly, Child Labor ect. This genre of ski movies portray skiing in it's best light, they are well edited, most of your favorite skiers, absolute insanity and style oriented. The truth is most of us have grown up on ski porn esque movies. I love both styles as most do, because I love freeskiing.
There are many factors that influence a great ski film/segment; music, sound, color, rider, spot selection, clothing, personality, and whatever antics revolve around the skier(s) in the film. The list goes on.
I guess my question is: what do you want to see, what can be done differently, and which movie style do you prefer?
