A Punctuation? started life as I began to make my way deeper into my 30s. At first, it was an ambitious plan to make one last video part. With my best skiing days firmly behind me, I set out to film a last 'proper' part with my much younger, much better at skiing, friend Marinho Meyer. The goal was to stack street, backcountry, and park shots, mostly for myself as a keepsake, but also to finally work together on something more substantial too.
Then the pandemic hit, I blew my knee skiing flat pow... and the project fell by the wayside for obvious reasons. I don't think I'm going to be jumping back on the filming horse anytime soon, but these are the couple of shots we stacked before things went pear-shaped, along with other random clips from the seasons since I last put together an edit. It's definitely not what I hoped for but it's what it is.
Part of me wants to keep going, but the older, wiser (?) part thinks it's probably the end of this road. 'A punctuation?' Well, partly it's a nod to the last cut I made, to perhaps my favorite ever quote from an NS article, but also, maybe this will be the last ski edit I put together. There's always a question mark over that though because it's so damn fun to get clipped.
