Drop Everything, by Matchstick Productions

 

From the production company that gave us ‘The Way I see It’ and ‘Days of My Youth’ comes this latest effort: ‘Drop Everything.’ The movie features pro riders Eric Hjorleifson, Michelle Parker and Cody Townsend, with a tongue-in-cheek approach that sets it apart from the competition. Aside from all the huge drops, epic lines and spectacular locations you’d expect, Drop Everything is just refreshingly funny!

 

 

Dick Moves, by Next Generation Media

 

The latest full-length ski flick from Norway-based Next Generation Media, ‘Dick Moves’ takes viewers from the snowy stairways of Oslo to the soaring peaks of Verbier. It features boundary-pushing street and terrain park skiing from the likes of Emil Larsen and Elias Kvarekvaal, with bold cinematography. Check out the official teaser here.

 

This is Home, by the Faction Collective

 

The Faction Collective’s first full-length feature, ‘This is Home’, follows the story of pro riders and skiers returning to their roots — showcasing the slopes where they each honed their skills. Covering Europe and the US, the movie offers valuable insight into the terrain the riders know and love best. The highlight? Surely Candide Thovex in his backyard of La Clusaz, France.

 

 

Wishes and Reality, by Midiafilm

 

Wishes and Reality is as much about showcasing the riders’ skills as it is about the stunning mountain scenery. The movie takes in sweeping descents and soaring valley views across Italy’s Cima Tosa peak, the Japanese resort of Hokkaido, the Silvretta Montafon in Austria and Vorkuta in Russia — just north of the Arctic Circle. ‘Wishes and Reality’ features the talents of pros like Felix Wiemers and Neil Williman, and you can check out the teaser here.

 

Rogue Elements, by Teton Gravity Research

Teton Gravity Research is a production company based out of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Since being founded in 1996, they’ve put together some of the skiing and boarding world’s most exciting movies — each with a message of extreme sports excitement and care for the environment. ‘Rogue Elements’ continues in the same vein and features filming locations across the Sierra Mountains in California, the Mont Blanc Massif in France, the Cordillera Real in Bolivia and Chatter Creek in British Columbia.
