Making snowboard films is a lot like life. It’s always exciting, filled with plenty of surprises, and with enough hard work, you’re granted some really amazing moments. But most of all, they’re a real pain in the ass. I should know, I’ve made fifteen of ‘em, in addition to commercials, music videos, major movies—you name it. But snowboard movies are the worst. Anyone who has ever worked on a half-assed snowboard movie knows just how much work it is, from dealing with riders who won’t get off the couch to crappy weather and snow conditions that plague film crews all year. Then there’s the snowmobiling—man, don’t get me started on snowmobiles. There’s nothing worse than getting stuck on a snowmobile. It suuuucks!
