Keywords is a new series from Good Company, conceived in the mind of none other than Karl Fostvedt. When your crew consists of some of the most talented skiers and filmers in the game, looking through old shots is a blast and Karl is no stranger to doing just that. "I like to plug a bunch of drives into 1 computer and search keywords to see what kind of madness will come up. It's really fun to search a keyword like "nollie" and then watch every variation of nollie that we've caught on film in the last few seasons".
It was during one of these hard drive sessions that Karl came up with the idea of turning the tagged clips into a series, where each edit would consist of the shots described by a keyword.
Tapping before, during, or after a rail/jump is no easy feat, let alone when you're trying it on features as large as the ones the Good Company crew is hitting.
Cheddar takes some gnarly crashes in the opening seg trying to tap a pipe to down ledge but the worst crashes come later when the crew is gapping over a staircase to brick spire tap. Many of the shots are fat overshoots to flat but finally Tim laces up the 5 tap.
The Good Company guys are the best of the best, you usually only see the finished product. With this series Tom hopes to show that "sometimes you just don't quite get the rail or the trick. Sometimes style or execution isn't quite there. I'm hoping with this series that we can show everyone the shots that never made the cut, and showcase how much work goes into this stuff!"
We're stoked to be able to share these cuts with you. Vote now for the next keyword below!
