It’s that time of year again. Go pick your pumpkins and watch the leaves change. But first, get your tickets to every premier you possibly can! All across the country, folks are lining up to see the newest and best ski films of 2011. Here at Windells, we want to make sure you don’t miss a thing. We have put together this tour guide, full of schedules, teasers, and even some free movies. Go ahead, get started!
On Top of the Hood from NIMBUS INDEPENDENT on Vimeo.
Sammy Carlson, along with Nimbus Independent, produced “On Top of The Hood,” this past spring. The highly anticipated film gives us a view from Mt. Hood that few have ever seen. Sammy and friends turn our home mountain into their own personal playground, creating features that seem to defy the laws of gravity. Sit back and watch this amazing, and free, full length movie thanks to Sammy Carlson and the team at Nimbus Independent.
With so many good movies to see this fall, you have to make sure to mark your calenders! One of our top picks comes from Windells ski coach Alex Martini and his production company Stept. Their new film “Weight” is sure to deliver everything a viewer could ever ask for. Last year, Stept won the coveted Best Amateur Film award at iF3, The International Freeski Film Festival, for their movie “Network.” This year, they walked away with the Best Jib Movie title. So, if you are in need of some unmatched jibbing, go ahead and catch Stept Production’s new movie “Weight” when it comes through your town. From what we hear, you might have a good time.
Another one of our top picks is Inspired Media’s “Retallack: The Movie.” This summer during Session 4, we were happy to share our park with Tanner Hall and the Inspired Crew. Every day, Tanner showed up with a giant smile on his face. He was just as excited to ski as the campers. That’s what we love to see; a seasoned veteran and decorated athlete riding each day and truly having fun. It’s no surprise that “Retallack” shows that same spirit and excitement that we saw on hill this summer. Make sure and get yourself a copy or download it online right now!
