After a number of peculiar teasers that have mystified both freeskiers and astronomers alike, a full trailer for Gore-Tex JOB In Space presented by Marker Völkl has finally been released for your viewing pleasure. The trailer gives you a glimpse of the journey that JOB In Space will take you on. Follow the unfortunate extraterrestrial astronaut's plight as he finds himself stuck on an ice-planet, encountering local snow fiends that perform fascinating stunts and who could well be the key to his escape from the planet. JOB In Space blows away freeski filming making conventions by mixing stellar action shots with enigmatic science fiction.
The extensive Junkies On a Budget production utilized five film crews from all over Europe, each with their own background and techniques. They produced and edited their vision of the sport into a segment, integrated into a creative plot line by artistic director Clemens Purner. They filmed all over Europe with some of the best freeskiers the continent has to offer. Never before have so many talented film makers and freeskiers collaborated in one project, it is a who’s who of the European freeski scene.
