The Gold Line - 12min
I wanted to recreate great memories from my youth of skating with friends.
A Line in the Snow - Greece - 9min
"Skiing in Greece? Really?" was the usual response when we said where we were going. With a desperate lack of snow in the Alps we were looking as far away as Morocco and Nepal for inspiration. We had been told that there was good snow in Greece, but we didn't quite believe it. With just five days planning we headed to Greece to explore the beautiful mountains of the north and meet the people that live and work there.
Pleasure Island - Britain's Abandoned Playgrounds (Episode 1) - 15min
Channel 4 commissioned up-and-coming Sheffield-based Salt Street Productions to produce a six-part series that explores some of Britain‰Ûªs most interesting locations via a group of young, talented urban athletes.
Travelling across the UK on a converted double decker bus freerunner Katie McDonnell, highliner Jediah Doohan, BMX rider Pete Catherall and skateboarder Calvin Ligono will breathe new life into six lost locations as they physically explore each space through their chosen sport.
The Curve Of Time - 23min
Due to climate change, by 2050 ski seasons will be markedly shorter. Lower elevations will receive significantly less snowfall. Two veteran professional skiers contemplate the impact their love for adventure has on the very environment that sustains and fulfills them. As they peer into the future, they realize there is a more sustainable path ahead, but it won't be easy.
Tsirku: Director's Cut - 20min
In late March of 2016, the team arrived at a base camp in Haines Pass, a region straddling the borders of the Yukon, British Columbia and Alaska. While awaiting better conditions to venture onto the Tsirku Glacier, they took the opportunity to explore the terrain surrounding Haines Pass by helicopter.
Faced with a sixty-kilometer snowmobile route across a massive glacier marked by crevasses, seracs, severe wind, and avalanche terrain, the journey soon became as relevant to the story as the destination. Due to the constantly changing weather and snow conditions, the team took over a week to develop the route and drop fuel and gear caches before completing the full day mission from Haines Pass to Corrugated basecamp.
One last thing stood in between the athletes and the face of Corrugated; mammoth cornices were blocking their access. Led by Mountain Guide Sam Anthamatten, the team works together to find their way onto the spine wall.
Ushba - 13min
Team riders Leo Slemett, Sam Anthamatten, and Markus Eder attempt to complete the first ski descent of the eponymous mountain in Svaneti, Georgia. From steep skiing to freestyle and pillow-lines 'the team climb the 4,694m high northern peak of the "Witches Sabbath' to attempt what has never been done before.
