Valhalla: Sweetgrass Productions

2013-01-07_0920s2013-01-07_09162013-01-07_0917d
Over the past few years the creativity and aesthetic of the ski movie has reached exciting new levels. Whether you’re remised about it or not, the days of the Warren Miller lifestyle film are quickly fading, if not already gone. Studios like Sweetgrass Productions, Sherpas Cinema, Teton Gravity Research, and Solomon Freeski TV – among others – have redefined the genre with next level editing, production and storytelling.

Presented here is the teaser for Valhalla, a Sweetgrass Productions film set to be released in Fall of this year. I love the aesthetic they’ve created, and can’t wait to see the full movie if this is any indication of how it might turn out.

Outliers Iceland: Black Beach

Posted by Navis

Last year I got to be a part of an amazing project with an immensely talented group of film makers, musicians and fellow photographer Kim Holtermand. The clip above is a sample from the film that Scenic Studios created along with DERU. I’d like to thank everyone that has supported the project. It’s so great to have projects such as this and many others come to life through Kickstarter.

You can see more of my photography from the project on my website:

There’s also a few more printed postcard books that can be purchased:

Or if you’d like, you can also purchase the film as a HD digital download:

NFB: The Face of the High Arctic

The Face of the High Arctic by Dalton Muir, National Film Board of Canada

If I’m ever in need of inspiration, the National Film Board of Canada’s website is an absolute goldmine of films ranging from the 1930′s to present. For myself, it’s their documentary nature films in particular that capture the imagination.

This film is a short doc about Canada’s arctic from the NFB’s earlier years (c1958). I’m considering posting a few more of these over the next few weeks, so I’d be interested in knowing what you think.

Universal Everything Studio Documentary

Posted by Charles

Matt Pyke at Universal Everything has done some incredible work over the years. Every time they release something new I’ll watch it at least 10 times trying to figure out what’s going on. In my opinion, some of the most creative, colorful and technically complex visuals have come out of this studio. Interestingly, The Creators Project has done a short documentary on Matt, giving us a glimpse into his studio and way of thinking about his work. If you’ve got the time, it’s a great watch and if you’ve got a little more time head over to the Universal Everything site and Vimeo to check out the work.

Baffin Island: A Skiers Journey

Posted by Navis

I don’t care much for vacations. I find them dull, boring and usually unfulfilling. I’ll vacation when I’m dead. I much prefer adventures. Jordan Manley makes me incredibly jealous and inspired all at once with this adventure. The story telling. The visuals. The hardships endured to create something beautiful are bound together perfectly. Every shot is breath taking. It makes me want to pack up my bags today and head north.

It’s videos like these that keep my spirits alive. They keep my dreams burning. What Jordan Manley has done here with a talented group of athletes is unlike anything that I’ve seen or felt from a sports video. It’s not the standard issue helicopter pan shots of Valdez or Chamonix. This is hours upon hours of hiking in extreme conditions. Putting their lives at risk to create a beautiful story in a place most of us have never heard of. Talk about passion.

Hopefully this video will inspire a few of you to take an adventure somewhere crazy this summer.
