The Controller

Interesting documentary about Kevin Fogolin, an avalanche controller who works and ski in some of the most spectacular mountains on earth. He brings down some of the most impressive avalanches and caught it on film. The full documentary is defiantly a recommendation.

Afterglow – Lightsuit Segment

Part#1: Presented by Philips TV and Atomic Skis, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

80 years of Bogner

OK, I must admit that I didn’t know much about the Ski and Snowboard Brand Bogner or the long family tradition in alpine sports. I do remember the crazy “Fire & Ice“ film from mid 80th’s which was packed of effects and ski action. What I also didn’t know is, that Willy Bogner directed in 4 James Bond movies the ski and snowboard scenes as not many people had the experience, at that time, to film with cinema quality cameras by high speed of 80km/h. So I found today the interesting documentary about the Bogner family and recommend it to see.

Lorraine. The Movie

A ski film unlike any other from Hanno Mackowitz, starring Lorraine Huber.
Deep snow, untracked slopes, classical music and a gifted skier. With his film ‘Lorraine’, Austrian film maker Hanno Mackowitz gives us something which in today’s society is increasingly speeding up and running away from us: time. Time to become consciously aware of the breathtaking scenery of snowcapped mountains, to discover details and the precision of a skier’s turn, and time to breathe. Nothing distracts the eye from the aesthetics of the images and dynamics of the snow, or the loneliness and devotion of the freerider Lorraine Huber. Not a single word.

The Art of FLIGHT – Part 2

[media id=145 width=650 height=366]

The Art of Flight: Metal Teaser is out and the final movie releases September 2011.

Brain Farm has gathered an arsenal of the most advanced and progressive film making technology to bring the snowboard community an epic snowboard adventure. Amazing camera movements and perspectives capture the most insane actions at destinations like Jackson Hole, Alaska, Chile, Aspen, Patagonia and more.

This is the new high watermark for snowboard movie-making. As you can tell by the pictures, Red Bull must have spent an embarrassment amount of money to shoot this movie but believe me, every second pays back big time.

Have fun!

BTW: This is the second trailer of “The Art of Flight”, so if you missed the first one, :: click here
