Remember when My Own Two Feet came out in 2008 and what a big deal that was?

Also interested in that Absinthe film coming out…. September 8, 2013 at 8:27 pm #669409 SchralphMacchio 474 Posts I haven’t seen a real trailer for Absinthe Dopamine yet. I think PowderWhore Elevation is looking to be a lot better than last year’s compilation … the Provo brothers are involved! The trailer looks solid: [youtube:2s0y6fpx]do7ZTO8_GnE[/youtube:2s0y6fpx] September 9, 2013 at 4:46 am #669410 grubbers 150 Posts Does anyone else think that all of these “deep” anecdotes in snow films are getting to be a bit cliche? September 9, 2013 at 1:35 pm #669411 nickstayner 700 Posts The new Sweetgrass movie “Valhalla” should be entertaining and will certainly have a fair shake of splitboarding… curious to see how the narrative plot/ski movie works out this time.

Isn’t that standard protocol for anything slightly commercialized in this super fast paced time we live in… Integrity and originality are watered down when everything is POV’d instantly. And biters are quick to the draw when its just to easy to produce and distribute to the masses for consumption. Eat-Shit-Give me more society… September 16, 2013 at 5:53 pm #669415 Rico in AZ 559 Posts Car Danchi = Funny. We need more funny in snow films these days. The trailers for Elevation and Valhalla look pretty and all, but as far as I can tell, they don’t show much splitboarding. I can only hope the full films include more of nosa costra. Does anyone else think that all of these “deep” anecdotes in snow films are getting to be a bit cliche? Yes. And as far as Sweetgrass films go, their films are always super serious. Exhibit A: Solitaire. Using “Heart of Darkness” as a metaphor for backcountry skiing in South America. Shit, it couldn’t possibly be anything else but super serious. Any independent projects? I do remember the good old days when Schraptown and My Own two Feet came out. Good stuff back then. Stuff like that is still out there, being produced by some of our very own SB.com peeps. Just not big production. September 19, 2013 at 12:49 pm #669416 PeRi 110 Posts In the last days I’ve had the chance to watch Dopamine and Elevation. Dopamine, from Absinthe films, is pretty good. Classic absinthe movie with lots of powder and backcountry, and some kind of original jibbing so it doesn’t get too boring. Forrest Shearer has like a 1 or 1’5 minutes section, and about 3-4 seconds of skinning… that’s something! Worth to watch it Elevation, from Powderwhore. I have to admit that it starts a bit weak, too much talking maybe? but as long as the movie gets going, it turns into an awesome backcountry movie. TRegarding splitboarding there’s the section with Zach Grant and Cindi Lou Grant where they show their cabin in the mountains and sweet powder riding, a part of Neil Provo with two skiers in some sort of retirement lodge which has sick terrain in their backyard, and finally the best part is the one with the Provo Bros. in Tordrillo, AK. Really steep lines, powder, only self propelled access to the lines… great segment, best one in the movie for sure! Really worth to go to the premiere or buy it, especially to support backcountry non-helicopters movie. good job powderwhore guys! www.splitboardmag.com September 19, 2013 at 5:53 pm #669417 whistlermaverick 312 Posts @nickstayner wrote: The new Sweetgrass movie “Valhalla” should be entertaining and will certainly have a fair shake of splitboarding… curious to see how the narrative plot/ski movie works out this time. Just saw “Valhalla” and thought it was great. No ski porn just lots of fun….nakedness, night fireworks shredding, and some other ridiculousness @j.memay September 19, 2013 at 10:59 pm #669418 chrishami 194 Posts @ricorides wrote: And as far as Sweetgrass films go, their films are always super serious.

I thought Solitaire was pretentious. I got that same feel from the trailer for “Into the Mind” but I’m still going to watch it, the imagery is gorgeous either way. @whistlermaverick wrote: @nickstayner wrote: The new Sweetgrass movie “Valhalla” should be entertaining and will certainly have a fair shake of splitboarding… curious to see how the narrative plot/ski movie works out this time.

The Nick Waggoner interview in Outside also makes me want to watch Valhalla. 167 furberg 163/26 Venture Helix September 26, 2013 at 3:59 am #669419 C balke 74 Posts The Absinthe films are always good to go. Not splitting but typically tons of big mountain and POW. I should be heading out to the SF showing in Nov. They always put on a good show. [youtube:23wyq3w1]MqC0YTKD12A[/youtube:23wyq3w1] Into the mind looks good. Im sure the Provo bros will kill it. The cinematography looks sick in the trailer. [youtube:23wyq3w1]pgbHAXUbCIg[/youtube:23wyq3w1] Gigi and Marco’s parts in the Pirate Movie Distorted Reality should be good. [vimeo:23wyq3w1]http://www.vimeo.com/75540216[/vimeo:23wyq3w1] As for Vahalla I’ll check it out but I could only take Sweetgrass in portions. I hope its not quite soo serious.

I really enjoyed the artsy style and different take on ski-porn. and i may be in love with siera quitaquit now?? I’ve been looking forward to ‘Naturally’ for quite some time now- JB’s style is sooooo smoove. I think it’s only free online for the next day or two! oh, and i fell asleep during Into The Mind. i felt like i was watching a music video. am i getting old? 😕 October 15, 2013 at 2:11 am #669425 maniacdave 564 Posts Short & sweet thoughts regarding Valhalla, posted on Sweetgrasses FB as well… I honestly dug it. The narrative structure was great throwback to ski porn from earlier decades. And a great Kootenay vibe, scripted or not every character has an authentic counterpart from that amazing homeland of skibums. Other films have nailed the visual aspect of the Koots time and time again. Valhalla got the soul. Thanks guys.
