Last weekend I was asked to participate in a 48 hour film competition as the composer for a 5 minute film. I’ve never been in a timed film competition – let alone – score a short film in under 48 hours, but I’ve been wanting to do more creative projects lately before I head over to the UK and it seemed like a challenge, so I accepted.
For those of you who don’t know what the guidelines of a 48 hour film competition are – at the beginning of the weekend the crews are given 3 prompts. For this years competition – it was you had to add someone saying the words “I was born ready” – you had to show a watch – and you had to have a flashback sequence – and now here’s the kicker – you have to film, edit, score, etc… all in 48 hours.
So with knowing all of the prompts – the directors, Nick and Howdy aka Door In The Floor Pictures, had an interesting idea to show off a heist of some sort. Immediately I got excited about the idea, because I was thinking of all the music I had been listening to at that time – i.e. Makeup & Vanity Set, Trent Reznor, M83. So I talked with Howdy about what kind of feel he wanted and possibly the direction of the tracks. So with knowing that I ended up working on three tracks til 7 in the morning – it was late – but thats the price you pay to make a 5 minute short film in under 48 hours.
The whole day on Saturday – I spent fleshing out the three tracks and mixing them to get the sound I wanted.
And also – for all the electronic music producers – the best plugin that helped me out with a couple of these tracks was Dada Life’s Sausage Fattener. Gave my bass tracks a huge grit and fatness that I was looking for. Another good thing about it was that it was only $29.
Anyways – I ended up working on another track on Saturday night. So in all I wrote 4 tracks for a 5 minute short film. One of them ended up not making it in, but I think it was for the best. It was a good one, but the songs that the directors chose to feature ended up fitting perfectly.
I put all of the tracks on bandcamp – even the one that didn’t make it in the final film – and if you want – you can download all of them for free.
And now here’s the film…
Would love to hear what you guys think about the music or the film in general. Facebook me and let me know.
I’ve been working on a video and a new song for a while, and finally it’s all complete to share with all of you.
This summer I got to take two weeks off from work and spent them traveling around Alaska and filming some of my advenutres. I went to Seward and hiked a couple trails, saw spawning Salmon, climbed a mountain, played frisbee golf, ate blueberries, and the list goes on. It was a perfect couple of weeks with the gorgeous summer we had. I took all this footage with the help of my iPhone 4S and an app called Dollycam that helped to stabilize the shaky parts. Once I had all of the footage I wanted to create a song that would be the perfect summer time companion for the video.
My brother Rick Cornfield helped along the way by adding some color correction and all those pretty flares you see.
It’s taken a while, but it’s all complete and I’m pretty excited how it all turned out. If you’d like to listen to more of my music…take a look at my Soundcloud and let me know what you think.
If you’re around Anchorage tonight and looking for something to do – there’s some cool things happening all over the place, but the one that I’ll be attending is Alaska Mobile Photo‘s First Friday gallery. They have compiled over 13 of Alaska’s mobile photographers including yours truly and 3 pics from each all taken from a phone camera. Pretty excited about it, and feel completely out of place with such a great roster of photographers tonight.
Downtown Kaladis – 5pm. See you there.
Alaska has been turning out some really cool things lately in every art department – music, fashion, film – the list goes on. It’s actually really exciting to see my favorite state start to branch out and create things of their own and really succeed at it.
One of those things that’s fairly new is Hipster Rehab. This actually showed up on my Facebook feed one day, because my friend Garret started it. Not only is it a blog / style guide – it also has some really dope things in the store. Like these new pair of sunglasses made out of zebrawood and redwood.
These glasses boast a handcrafted simple design with an added bonus of being eco-friendly. Pretty sweet and they’re only $89 on their website – which for a well designed pair of sunglasses is not too shabby.
Some of you might know that I’m in a band up here in Alaska called Thera. I play the bass, once in a while play the guitar, and help out in the synth department. It’s probably one reason why I’m still a little sane to make music on a larger scale then just on my computer in my room by myself.
A little while ago – we announced that we’re heading to the UK for a 2 week tour in November with Alaskan heroes 36 Crazy Fists. Which is a huge opportunity that we never expected to get to do. There’s a couple reasons why I’m stoked about this tour. First – it’s in the UK. Second – it’s with 36. Third – it’s in the UK. I’ve never been overseas (never been out of North America for that matter) and have always wanted to, but here’s my chance to see the world while playing music.
We’ve toured the US before, and we were thankful for the opportunity to do that, but it was tough being a no name band traveling through the states and trying to get people to come to our shows. So – the US was a little tough – let’s try the UK!
The only downside to the tour is we are having to pay for everything ourselves. And even though we thought about doing a Kickstarter again – we didn’t want to keep bogging down your Facebook feeds with a post everyday that says “Help us go on tour by giving us money!!” Even though Kickstarter is a huge help to get projects goin – we wanted to do this on our own and work really hard for it. This will be the biggest thing we’ve ever done…and the most expensive.
So we came up with one idea…it’s not the biggest idea we’ve had, but hopefully it helps. I designed a special t-shirt just for the people that want to help us go on tour to the UK. It’s my first dive into the t-shirt designing business and am really excited how it turned out.
If you’d like one for yourself – you can send $30 our way via PayPal with the email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – we still have a bunch of shirts left including XS, S, M, L & XL. If you would like one – we only have a limited supply – around 100 – and they’re selling pretty fast, but make sure you add your size and address with the purchase. If we sell out of all of them – we might get more – so don’t be discouraged if we sell out of the first batch.
If you don’t want one – totally cool – I’m curious if you like the design I made. Like I said – it’s my first t-shirt design – and I would love to get feedback from the people out there. You can leave a comment on here or on Facebook. Thanks for reading!
If you like ToC on Facebook…then you might have seen the song “Electricity” I posted a while ago from one of my new favorites “FMLYBND” (pronounced Family Band … they took out the vowels – because vowels aren’t in anymore and they just don’t care).
They released a new song a while ago that apparently flew under my radar, and I am just now getting to it. It’s called “Far Away” and it’s just as killer as the first track. Literally…it’s killer. I don’t say that very often. So yea…there ya go. History in the making.
I’m gonna make a prediction…I have a feeling FMLYBND will be the next big thing soon. Once the word gets out and these guys have more then just 2 songs…they’ll be everywhere. Well…even if they don’t record any more songs…they’ll still be big. Their live shows will be super quick…but totes worth it yo.
I need to bring ‘em up to Alaska. I feel like they would do really well up here.
I know most of you aren’t from Alaska and probably have never been here – and you probably won’t care about this – but if you’re one of the special few who have ever wondered what it’s like to go to a concert in the big AK, look no further. Matt Collins of the Anchorage Press has released 10 interesting behaviors you might see at a concert or festival in Alaska.
He hit the nail right on the head for some of them…like the ‘Unwavering Appreciation’ – spot on. I also like how he started out with ‘Shirtless fat dudes in the moshpit’ – because let’s all be honest – we know that guy. Or at least we know he’s going to be around when we need him the most.
A couple months ago my buddy JJ told me about a new iPhone app he was working on called “The Beer Up Here” – showcasing what Alaska has to offer in the brewery department. He showed me the quick ins and outs of the app – and needless to say I was stoked.
The Beer Up Here is “your mobile field guide to what’s brewing in Alaska.” It covers every brewery and pub in Alaska – and each beer they offer now or used to – giving a brief description of the beer to go along with a gorgeous photo. It also has a rating process where with each beer you drink from the 49th state – you can rate on a scale from 1-10. As an added bonus they keep you up to date on the blog from Dr. Fermento, a local beer connoisseur who knows everything about beer – especially in Alaska.The interface is sleek and easy to use. Making it a breeze to find the beer or brewery you want and keep a tally of what you like and what you don’t. You can also follow their travels on their photo blog.
The price of the app is $4.99 and is a must have if you are a fan of craft brewing and Alaska. Available now on the App Store.
Over Wednesday and Thursday this week my friend Benny and I got inspired to go to Seward (a 2+ hour drive) just for the night. At first I was reluctant – I had a lot to do at home and gas isn’t cheap – but the idea sounded too good – so heck yea – we went. Honestly – trips like this don’t come around every week, well they do for people who have normal weekends off, but I have the middle of the week off and have to work during weekends, so it’s just a little tougher for me. So yea…I’m glad I said yes.
The drive there was filled with new music…I think we listened to the new Relient K, some Dubstep, threw in some metal with Bring Me The Horizon, and a couple ToC mixes (Yes…I listen to them too).
Got there around 6:30 – and ready for some good eats. Luckily my bandmate Ronnie was in town for work, and came and hung out with us. Our plan was to walk around Seward, since it’s not that big, and find somewhere to eat that we all agreed on. We walked like 20 steps and saw the very young Seward Brewing Company – and I was immediately enticed.
The Seward Brewing Company is less then a year old, so they don’t have that much beer, but what they do have – I was a fan of. I tried a sample of 4 beers (which you can see in the above picture) – the Golden Ale, White, Red Ale, and IPA – which I just found out my friend Kevin helps in the consulting of the brewing process for each.
My favorite was either the IPA or the White. I’m usually not much of a white fan, but I read the description of the beer before drinking it – “with hints of chamomile, coriander, sweet and bitter orange peels” – and I could taste every ingredient like it was the main one. Spot on description. I think I liked that experience of tasting the ingredients more then the beer though. I’ll have to try it again.
After beer and an amazing bowl of clam chowder, we headed down to the docks. I like to do this whenever I’m in Seward – the process of seeing the boats in the water and coming up with stories of the owners or dreaming about owning a yacht someday. It’s a good mind relaxer – and I have so many memories that I’ve made in Seward – that it makes for a very nostalgic time.
This video was one of the first Instagram vids I took – I was so impressed with how this turned out, because of the image stabilizer and the filters. It definitely makes your video’s look more professional and I couldn’t get enough of it.
After rock climbing and dock exploring, we headed to a buddies house where we were gonna sleep. We staid in his RV outside his house and brewed up a campfire a little ways away and talked for several hours. A perfect way to end the night.
It was an amazing time – even though it was less than 24 hours – I still had a blast. The rain clouds stayed away and let the sunshine through – which made the drive there even more beautiful.
Here’s another video I had to share of Benny and a waterfall right before we left Seward. You can see that this seems like pretty quality stuff, but it’s just Instagram on my iPhone. Really stoked on how this one turned out.
One of the coolest things that happened to me because of this website was I got to join my favorite local Alaskan band, Lavoy. It started with THIS interview about their new CD “Bearly Merry” – I thought it would help them out and would be cool to give a sneak peak behind the album. Because of that interview – me and singer, Tyrell, decided to grab lunch – and during the hour we set aside for lunch we found out we shared an interest in the same music – next thing I know and a couple weeks later…I’m in the band. What an honor it was to play with these guy for about a year. Such an inspirational set of guys and their encouragement throughout my time with them was legendary – also the songs we wrote were dope. They have an amazing mindset and focus for music that I didn’t appreciate until I left the band.
Lavoy is about to move on to bigger and better things, and I wish them the best – couldn’t be more happier for them…but before they do…they’ve been talking about something big coming out June 1st. So follow them on their Facebook for the big update.
Here are some of the new songs I helped write. Really stoked to hear these songs getting a great overhaul with new parts and sounds.
I love Alaska. Every time I go out of state I keep moving back here. Honestly…not sure why…I hate the winter and it’s dark – cold – wet half of the year, but for some reason I can’t get enough of this place. When I think about it – part of what draws me to Alaska – is it’s “compactness” – for example: it’s a lot easier for a band to play shows or to start up a business in Alaska then it is in New York – mostly because you have less competition and criticism. Artist’s up here get a lot of recognition for their work – whether it’s painting or photography or whatever – the tight knit art community that Alaska has put together is growing and is turning into something amazing.
I don’t talk about my home state as much as I should on here. I’m proud of the things that are coming out of Alaska, and in the future I will begin to write more and more about it – the music, the events, the people, the places, etc…
To kick it off…I want to talk about Anchorage Community Works, a new place that is opening up this summer. It’s dedicated to putting like minded thinkers in the same room to learn from each other or work together. ACW will be a multipurpose building being used as a concert venue, art studio, shared classroom, and collaborative workspace holding classes on health, art, bike making, business and as a added bonus – have film screenings and art shows. They started a Kickstarter to help them get ready for the grand opening. I posted the video below which gives you a little more insight into who ACW is and why it’s a necessary addition for Anchorage.
Something like this is crucial for this city. A place for artists and like minded individuals to come together instead of a Kaladis or a bar. Check out their Kickstarter – and if you feel so inclined – drop a few dollars off while you’re there.
I try to stray away from plugging myself or my projects…but lately I’ve been thinking “Why not?” – it helps me get feedback from you guys and you to know me better. So I decided to post the new 24 minute documentary I recorded, “scored,” and edited for my band, Thera.
It’s about a year in the making. Mostly because I slacked off and it just got pushed down the to-do list, but…I buckled down and was able to finish and release it last week over on our Facebook page. We got the pleasure of doing our last EP with legendary producer, Matt Goldman and this is the documentary of the process. Hope you enjoy!
I know it’s not the most professional thing you’ve seen – mostly because it was filmed on a Flip camera, but it gives you a little insider look at the making of our album which we wanted to show.
I’m a big IPA drinker, and one of the beer’s that I can not forget about, from the Alaska Beer & Barley Wine Festival, is Gigantic Brewing Company‘s IPA. Gigantic is based out of Portland, Oregon and has been making waves since it’s opening in 2012. Which is pretty impressive – seeing as that it is already in liquor stores up here and hasn’t even been opened a year. But enough about the brewery…let’s talk beer.
The pour had a nice clear, orange-golden color to it, with a pretty substantial head of foam – which for me is not always too bad. I kind of like a little foam, just because it’s part of the beer – a lot of people want to skip it and move straight to the liquid – but it doesn’t bother me a whole lot, unless it’s half the glass…then that’s a bad pour. But I digress.
The taste of the beer, from what I can remember, was, for me, 85% hoppy, 10% citrusy, and the remaining 5% the other ingredients fight it out. I’m a man – and I like my hops – that’s why I’m a fan of this beer. After the swallow, your left with a little bitter hop aftertaste, but nothing that’s out of control. I’m giving it an 8 out of 10 – because it was a memorable beer and had the taste that I like in an IPA. A good strong hops flavor is a great way to win over my approval.
Try Gigantic’s IPA for yourself and let me know what you think via Facebook / Twitter / or comment on this post. I’d be curious how many beer drinkers we have reading and maybe start a good discussion.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of heading to my first beer festival – the amazing Great Alaska Beer & Barley Wine Festival. I had heard a lot of good things about this event in the past, but never had the chance to go, because I was always out of town or just flat out broke. This year I got the chance to partake in the festivities, and bought tickets for me and some of my friends. I plan on this post being a little informative on the beer festival, and hope to follow up in the next few days with some beer reviews that we got to try while we were there.
Our tickets were for the 6 – 9:30 session, the last out of 3 sessions. We got there around 6ish and had to wait in line (which you can see below) for about 20-30 minutes, because this thing is apparently very popular, and we were not the only people that bought tickets. The three and a half hour time we had there gave us plenty of room to “drink in” the sights and send our “tasters” out for a good time.
We got in and were immediately handed bracelets after showing our ID and tickets, then our commemorative 2013 6 oz. glass with 30 drink tickets and our Festival Beer Guide, with brewery bio’s and beer stats.
Here’s how it’s set up for someone who has never been to this festival. There are tons of breweries, 75 this year, from all over the United States – a lot from Alaska, some from the Northwest, but they all have one thing in common – they all bring their “A Game” beers on tap or in bottles. You use one of your tickets to try one beer (sometimes more then one for a beer, but those are the greedy breweries who think their beer is better then everybody else’s). The tickets are basically used as a “limiter” so people don’t go too overboard, but it seemed as if the ticket rule wasn’t enforced a whole lot. After you rinse your glass with the complimentary water pitchers and dump buckets, you hand them the glass and fill it with whichever beer suits your fancy. And trust me…30 tickets is more then enough.
We started off with the local brewery, Sleeping Lady Brewing Co. and their Old Gander Barley Wine, a brew that boasts an ABV of 10%. Definitely a strong one to start the night out with, but with a nice sweet aroma and subtle hints of vanilla, it kicked us into high gear. We rated most of the beers we tried on a scale from 1 to 10, and gave this one a 4. Mostly because we’re not huge barley wine drinkers and weren’t 100% sure what to look for in drinking one. But their Fish On! IPA is a must try.
One of the things the Great Alaska Beer & Barley Wine Festival helped me with was personal preference. With so many great beers to choose from – I got to narrow down my taste buds to the few things I really look for in a beer. I got to try an IPA, a stout, and a cider back to back, which you don’t get to do very often. That was key in discovering new flavors and judging what was the best part of a certain beer. Another thing I took away from the festival was my pace (thanks to the Dr. Fermento’s forward in the beer guide)…I didn’t want to drink too much, too fast, and not enjoy the beer (I paid too much to get weird) – So I drank some water and popped some sourdough bread bites they had at the booths, in between samples, to slow down the effects of the alcohol.
At the end of the night I was happy and leaving with a better understanding of what brewery I need to look for at my local store and changed what I look for in a beer. If you get a chance to visit the Great Alaska Beer & Barley Wine Festival next year – I highly recommend it. Definitely a great time – just don’t do it alone. It was fun to have people to go back and forth with on the beers.
A long, long time ago…I posted about Brain Farm and it’s dope-tastic snowboarding film “The Art Of Flight.” All this time I have gone without watching it…I know…it’s dumb, but I just found out the series, which seems to be the film broken up into seven episodes, is officially on Netflix. I just watched the first two episodes – and I have to say – it made me want to learn how to snowboard; which a lot of people would be surprised about…because I live in Alaska…but it just never happened.
Seeing them party and board in Alaska makes it that much more enticing to throw away any goals and dreams I’ve ever had, and work on becoming a pro-snowboarder. You cannot tell me after watching the second episode…that you would want that too.
Apparently Brain Farm’s own, Curt Morgan, and M83′s, Anthony Gonzalez, worked together on the song in the trailer calling themselves – The Three Corners Of The Earth. It gives me great pleasure that my favorite musician had something to do with this. The song – “Fire Shall Devour Them” makes me want to listen to this while snowboarding or snowmachining (snowmobiling for you lower 48′ers). You can purchase the song on iTunes and listen to it below. Plus I had to add the artwork below too…because it’s stellar…I’m a fan.
I’ve seen a bunch of timelapse videos that showcase Alaska in amazing ways, but I’ve never wanted to post one until I found Zan Butler‘s Anchorage By Winter. His 7 month long process of filming really paid off since he’s getting a lot of recognition for the video. I love the Aurora Borealis shot about 1:30. I’ve only seen it this strong once in real life…it’s amazing that he caught it on film.
“So this is what I did over this past winter when I was not making people coffee.
It’s all time-lapse footage shot in and around Anchorage, Alaska, with the emphasis on the nature around the city rather then on the people and buildings. This is a collection of the nicer stuff I shot of the northern lights, stars, sunset, and the tide. All of this was shot between October 2011 and April 2012.”
Check out his other videos over at vimeo…
Some of you might know that one of my band’s, Thera, is releasing a new CD, entitled “From The North” next month. We just released our single over on our Facebook. We went all out on this album, because we wanted it to be the best representation of our new songs and where we were at, so we traveled down to Glow In The Dark Studios in Atlanta to record with producer, Matt Goldman. You may recognize the name from his work with Underøath and The Chariot, just to drop some names.
To go along with our quality recorded songs, we wanted the artwork to convey the album and the band in a new light. The songs are a different breed of what we used to be, because each of us has grown in a lot of ways from dedicating 2011 to the band with moving, touring, and recording. So we wanted to find an artist that knew us and knew what we wanted. So we turned to our friend Nik Burman.
Nik used to live up here in Alaska, now in California, we stayed at his apartment in Chico on tour last summer, so we all knew him pretty well. He actually made a cameo appearance in one of our tour vlogs. When we stayed with him, we saw most of his artwork up close and fell in love with all of it. So when it came down to decide who was going to help us design our new record – it was kind of a no brainer.
The idea for the design was to play off the elements fire and ice. Mostly because we have two new songs where fire plays a big role, and “From The North” is talking about how we’re from Alaska…so we wanted to play off the ice factor of that. We told Nik our idea, and trusted him to go off on his own and be creative with it. And even before we were done recording the songs, he had sent us some artwork that helped fuel us in the recording process.
I wanted to interview Nik for ToC to show off more of his work, so I did. Click ahead to read the interview, see more of his handiwork, and get a special inspiration mix compiled by Nik himself.
(sorry about all the lines)
A lot of people think that being up in Alaska there’s not a whole lot going on and the music scene is non-existent. Not true. Alaska has tried to wrestle with the big dog cities and by doing that – we have a lot of cool stuff going on. I wish I could go to everything that happens up here, but I just can’t.
One thing that I’m for sure going to is Lavoy‘s CD release show for their new album “Bearly Merry” at the Bear Tooth‘s First Tap – this thursday. I have had it on my calendar ever since I found out about it while in the lower 48. I’m very excited for this show and the new album.
If you don’t know who Lavoy is – which I’m sure some of you that aren’t from Alaska haven’t had the pleasure to have your ears listen to the beauty, Lavoy is a rough tough band of scoundrels born and raised in Alaska. Haha. Ok, a little too much…got carried away…but really that’s not far off. They all do live in Alaska…and even though their exterior is soft and cuddly…they are very passionate about the music they make and their belief in God.
They’re latest album, We Met In The Arts, was “more raw” then their debut album, Said The Quiet Hands, which is more electronically influenced. They’re new album “Bearly Merry” is a good combination of both albums together.
Here’s a new song called “Smile”…
Yes please. The first thing you notice is the bass. Great crisp tone with Ryan Monson (who designed the artwork for ‘Music To Drive To‘ last year) slapping dat bass with Kipp Riley keeping the beat with the kick. Sean Riley, has this really cool phaser effect or whatever it is on his guitar for the striking chords you hear (he has really cool vintage gear that gives him great tone), and then Tyrell Tompkins’ voice comes in soothing and refreshing your ears from years of letting yourself listen to bad music.
They have a lot of experience combining elements of different genres into their songs. Which is a good way to go, seeing as now they’re able to do anything they want and all of us fans are ok with it and expect it, and love them even more for trying new things.
If you want to hear more – come out to February’s First Tap at the Bear Tooth where Lavoy will be releasing their new CD and playing old and new songs. And sorry to the Under-21 crowd, but this is for 21+, which I know sucks, but you’ll get your chance I promise. We all used to be there. It sucks, but one day…
I recently got to sit down with the frontman of Lavoy, Tyrell, to talk about the new album, the recording process, and the future. Read the interview and get a special Lavoy mix after the jump…
Wow…it’s been so long. I apologize for dropping the ball on making mixes for you guys. It’s been a busy couple of months…but I’ll be better…I promise!
For the first one back I made “Music To Wake To” to go along with what I did a couple months ago for “Music To Sleep To.”
I tried to make a playlist that would wake you up out of your slumber gradually, and then as it plays on, the songs get faster paced to wake you up more.

Some of you might know that I’m in a rock band called Thera, and that we’re on tour right now through the midwest. It’s part of the reason my blogging habit hasn’t been getting much use just because of the lack of WIFI and lack of time. BUT – right now I’m sitting in a Starbucks in Nashville’s Green Hill mall killing some time and am determined to finish this.
In the light of the tour…I’ve been documenting a lot of our activities and shows and have been editing them into tour vlogs. They’re not really “vlogs” but more of clip compilations. The first one done is when we traveled through Oregon.
The place where we spent most of our time was a tiny town called Cannon Beach. Beautiful place – as you will see in the video. Most of you might recognize the big rock (Haystack Rock) which stars in The Goonies, because this is where they filmed the entire movie – which made me geek out every time I saw something that was in the movie (I grew up on that movie…and the first 2 Home Alone’s:). We got to visit the Goonie house (as you will see at the end of the video) – which has been a highlight for me.
Anyways…we stayed around Cannon Beach with my good friend, Kyle (who’s a great photographer – hopefully link will come soon) and other friends from Ecola Bible School, which is a great place for people wanting to further their relationship with God.
Near the end of our stay there we decided to do a house show…outside. Which was a horrible idea looking back at it – I see that we should have probably not done that, but we were just itching to play and wanted to skip the realistic complications of the idea. Needless to say…we got busted by the cops. No big deal, now we have joined an elite club of musicians! Ha.
More on our trip coming soon…watch the rest of the video below…and follow me on twitter for updates on our tour.
If you like what you see on here…don’t just keep it for yourself…share it!
There’s not actually much to say about Lance Lekander, except that his work is so Pixar talent-worthy, it makes me a little ill (it’s a good thing!).
There’s a lot of great talent running around Anchorage these days.
“Brain Farm has gathered an arsenal of the most advanced and progressive film making technology to bring the masses a snowboarding adventure of epic proportions. Filmed on location in Jackson Hole, Alaska, Chile, Aspen, Patagonia, British Columbia and more, FLIGHT brings the viewer along for the perfect blend of adventure/travel drama and high-energy snowboarding action. The Art of FLIGHT releases September 2011.”
Holy crap. This looks like the best snowboarding movie of all time.
Jump ahead to see a video of the people behind the camera…
