Teton Gravity Research has released a trailer for their latest film: Way of Life.
Shot in early 2013 almost everywhere except Colorado (oh well!) it looks great. The film tour will be heading around the country starting in late September and will have a number of screenings around the state:
The last thing that comes to mind is 14,000-foot mountains covered in Utah-like powder, with densely populated resorts and chalets nestled at the base of the slopes. However, with over 75% of the population of Iran aged 35 and under, counter-cultures like snowboarding are hidden sanctuaries for the youth of Iran. We will explore this unknown world on and off the slopes through the eyes of these three American riders, and experience their journey as they discover a country that has been sealed off from the West for over 30 years.
Plus, one of Colorado’s own, Gabi Viteri, is planning to travel to Iran:
Colorado’s Gabi Viteri has spent a fair share of time in front of film and still cameras. After spending 2010 rehabbing from a hip injury, Gabi came back strong and filmed all season with Peepshow. In between touring from North Carolina to Montreal hunting for creative street spots, Gabi hit up the US Open rail jam, rocked the Burton’s women’s team shoot at Northstar-at-Tahoe, and stopped off at the Sundance Film Festival and Coachella with the Burton crew.
The film is looking to raise $125,000 by September 16th to cover expenses (and have raised almost $24,00 as of today). If you pledge money to the effort now you can help the project be successful and receive a variety of rewards including a DVD or Blu-Ray of the film, a t-shirt, hoodie, and a variety of gift bags.
Here’s the latest trailer out of Burton for their upcoming movie: 13. Starring Mikkel Bang, Danny Davis, Mark Sollors, John Jackson, Terje Haakonsen, Mikey Rencz, Jeremy Jonesm Jussi Oksanen, Zak Hale, Ethan Deiss.
Coming in 2013 from Red Bull, “McConkey” is a 90-minute documentary about the legacy one athlete left to the progression of his sports, and the path he paved to conquer his dreams. Shane McConkey is revered as the pioneer of freeskiing and ski base jumping, and through his talent and unique outlook on life, he inspired countless lives. Learn more at http://mcconkeymovie.com/.
Here’s another great movie to get you in the mood for another season:
Two years in the making, “The Art of FLIGHT” gives iconic snowboarder Travis Rice and friends the opportunity to redefine what is possible in the mountains. Experience the highs, as new tricks are landed and new zones opened, alongside the lows, where avalanches, accidents, and wrong-turns strike.
I just downloaded this the other day and can’t wait to sit down and check it out. As always, there’s an all star cast from Red Bull and with nearly 650 reviews on iTunes, it’s a solid 5 stars. Catch the trailer over at the Art of FLIGHT movie website.
Standing Sideways was filmed on location wherever good snow was found, and features the riding of professional snowboarders Terje Haakonsen, Nicolas Müller, Jussi Oksanen, Jeremy Jones, Danny Davis, Mikey Rencz, Frederik Kalbermatten, Keegan Valaika, Mikkel Bang, Kazu Kokubo, Mark Sollors, Zak Hale, Mark McMorris, Ethan Deiss, Alex Andrews and Stephan Maurer.
The tour kicked off here in Denver last week. Learn more at Burton and download the movie in iTunes for $5.99.
