I was gonna get this vid based on DCP's part alone (and their previous work)



^^^anyone know what song that is?

Re the skier vs snowboarder stuff.....for me it's not about picking one that makes better sense on paper....its about what makes better sense for FUN....for ME. To each their own.

For me, I've always really appreciated and enjoyed the crossover effect the board sports offer. Meaning, the basic fundamentals of balance, turn, jib, etc are the same regardless if I'm on a surfboard, snowboard, skateboard, wakeboard, longboard, noboard, powsurfer, skimboard, kiteboard, etc. I stand sideways and it doesn't matter what board I'm on or what medium I'm in. Its all the same.

I reckon the same could be said for people that like to face forward...skiing, rollerblading, hockey, etc.

I think the sideways (board) turn just looks prettier than a ski turn (toilet turn) but again...just my opinion!

I heart good skiers and have plenty of friends that ski....I just don't want to be one. lol :thatrocks:

Honestly, guys, do we really have to hash out this crap out every season, with every movie release? I'm sorry that your video turned out different than you would expect. Dang, that must have hurt. Now, is your whole season ruined because nobody asked for your input in the editing room?


Booo Fucking Hooo!!!


uhhhh...... :scratch:

I'm just gonna say it...


This is what happens when you give physically talented but undereducated privileged white kids a 20 million dollar budget:

1) mind blowing level of skiing

2) mind blowing cinematography

3) mind blowing lack of plot line organization

4) mind blowing separation / dissociation from reality

5) mind blowing degree of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder

It was like my brain kept wanting more of a deeper meaning to all this flashy shit, yet I realized that somewhere along the line these guys just got over funded, probably pressured to make something epic, and somehow forgot the basics of how to write a single paragraph. There's an introduction, a body, and a closure... This was like one GIANT introduction with a fantastically disorganized body, and essentially no final clear closing message. It was like "we ski hot as shit, have a crap load of money, and here's a pathetic attempt at a story line".

I mean, I'll probably watch that BC section again because the shredding is unworldly, but I can't say I'll waist my time again watching that retarded snowboard half pipe section again. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?!?! The tricks were like early 90's progression! Oh cool, he was trying a frontside 5! And he's just sitting there hitting himself in the head?? It was the stupidest thing I've ever seen!

Oh, my thoughts on the debate on which sport is more shredtastic (skiing vs. snowboard): They are different activities with their own strengths and weaknesses, and it mostly has to do with the rider...

Xavier's part in this movie was RAD! And he charges as fast as any skier... Just sayin!

That's the most spraying I've done in 5 years!

Russman got it right.

Our local avalanche center brought it to town for a fund raiser. Meh movie, I hope at least KPAC got a percentage of the bar revenue and made some money.

I felt like I was watching Into the Mind lit up on equal doses of meth and acid, not just the handful of Newcastle's in my belly. Speed up, slow down. Overlayed images, like the half pipe scene? Projected scenes onto active scenes? ADD editing? Lots of film making gimmickery, but lacking cohesion. Yeah yeah, Sherpas, I get it, but I didn't really like it.
One thing I've always hated in snow porn flicks is quick editing, or the so called "trick film". I've always preferred editing (which comes top down from the production company), a film that shows more of the run; I felt Into the Mind was pretty much a trick reel.

Valhalla was much better. That one I would watch again. It has naked ladies!

Just that little dcp teaser clip had too many edit cuts. Granted the water to snow transition was fucking sick but barley any riding. Those pillows are the sex though.

I loved valhalla, sweetgrass never fails.

Agree Russsman. That was my same issue with art of flight, and on a different level my hatred of all things TGR culture related. i'm tired of uncreative 19-31 year old white kids getting handed free money to "express themselves". <----- I fully include myself in this except i'm not getting free money.

Some good rants in here.

I just saw this flick and really liked it. I'd say that if you've seen Koyaanisqatsi and at least know who Joseph Cambell is, you'll probably dig this movie. It's 'experimental,' fer sure, but I liked that it was ambitious, and there are a few moments that are mind blowing (like the super slow zoom in to a tiny skier riding a nice couloir). My :twocents: .
