Moonlining off Mount Blanc

Moonlining? Never heard that one before this truly elegant video popped along. The skier: Valentin Delluc. And he’s managed to capture some real magic in this moment. Ordinary description doesn’t do it justice.  If you must know how, you can find it below the youtube link. If you’re like me, you may prefer not knowing….

The Imagination of JP Auclair

About six years ago, Canadian freeskier JP Auclair teamed up with Sherpa Cinema to produce one of the most memorable ski videos I’ve ever seen.  It appeared with the ordinary title: JP Auclair Street Segment (from All.I.Can) but it was anything but ordinary.

Banff Mountain Festival Preview

The Banff Mountain Festival. Banff. When first heard about its mountain film festival, I had no idea where that was. If it hadn’t been for the winter Olympics a bunch of years back, I wouldn’t know much about Calgary either, but that’s just me being American. Truthfully, it sounded like someplace in Scandinavia.

Gritty Filmmaking
