THIRTYTWO - MT.HOOD, OR
Finally some news about the project Mark has been working on in June and July at Mt.Hood near Portland, Oregon. The project itself is a snowboard movie called "ThirtyTwo - Euros invade Mt.Hood" which was shot at Timberline ski resort. It features the best ThirtyTwo / Etnies riders from Europe ( Toni Kerkela, Dominik Wagner, Nejc Ferjan, Dani Rajcsanyi, Benny Urban, Julia Baumgartner, Flo Achenrainer and James Niederberger ). Hanging out and shooting with those guys was a really a lot of fun with no stress included (maybe just Racoon stressed us a bit).
The first plan was to shoot a snowboard documentary movie during the stay in the States. By working very hard each day from both sides ( the rider's and production team's ) and getting more and more good footage and tricks, it became possible to make a true snowboard movie, with a bit of documentary styled footage inside. ThirtyTwo Europe is going to present one of 5 parts from the movie each week. At the end they will also realese a full "ThirtyTwo - Euros invade Mt.Hood" movie and you will be able to get it for free. Second thing we took care of, was a product review video, where Nejc, Benny and Dominik talk about the gear they use and the gears' features. After all ThirtyTwo is the biggest snowboot company in the world, known by its quality and design.
We would like to thank the whole team for making this project possible. Especially we would like to thank Windells Camp and the whole Windells Media Crew for hooking us up with some extra footage from the riders (thanks Tyler Malay, Paul Heran, Alexandra Erickson, Jake Strassman, Jake Durham). Thanks go also to the MHSSC (Mount Hood Ski Sommer Camp) for letting us privatly shoot in your park. Big ups go to Tassilo Hager and ThirtyTwo Europe menagement. And last but not least the photographer who really showed some interest in helping with shootings with any kind of stuff, Said Burg. He also sent us the amazing pictures from the trip down below.
