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
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.
