Alter Ep2 - 3 minutes
In “Alter” we see the world around us through the eyes of our athletes who, via sport, have totally changed the way they see the world. In this second episode, we tell the story of Jamie Foy’s fantastical freestyle with a standard stair-set and its surreal double life, all set to the voice of 1979 Skater of the Year, Steve Olson. You may just see a set of stairs, but Jamie sees a world of possibility.
Charge - 4 minutes
Four top freeskiers and a World Champion drone pilot are dropped at Chatter Creek, BC for one week. Their instructions: charge as hard as you can everyday. Featuring Stan Rey, Cody Townsend, Chris Rubens, Alexi Godbout and Jordan Temkin.
Floe State - 3 minutes
While we thrive on following adrenaline fuelled adventures, this opportunity to take some time and embrace the peace and tranquility that Gilly experiences in her time ice swimming was a true pleasure. Whilst a hostile and unforgiving environment, to most, the presence of mind and calmness is a true inspiration and something that actually translates to all of our day to day encounters.
Going Nowhere. - 4 minutes
Focusing on Simon Pitman, this piece follows a two day one night adventure to a bothy in West Scotland. Simon, Sarah and I drove and then cycled to a mountain Bothy surrounded by stunning Scottish scenery. Simon talks about his beliefs of why people should get outside. In many ways when we go into the mountains we head into NOWHERE.
Hors piste - 6 minutes
The two best rescue workers of the region are ready for their new mission. Despite their professionalism and their determination, it will not go as planned...
Urban Nature - 2 minutes
On a road trip through Alberta Canada we experienced the philosophy of First Nations and how they connect their urban life with nature experience. This love for Mother Nature was the foundation of the film's philosophy. We are all stuck in our daily life and To Do Lists. But when heading out into nature, we can all forget about those for some time and find our inner spirit. The soundtrack was sung by the Warrior Women with a song from Sherryl Sewepagaham in the woods. The song was then orchestrated by Sebastian Linda, the director of the film. The synergy of all elements is what makes Urban Nature a thrive of connection we all long for.
Full Circle - 4 minutes
This film was a project with a focus on going back to one of Ampisound's very first styles of parkour video, getting as close as possible. The legends at Wiral and GoPro hooked us up with a wire system and a 360 camera, so we knew it was perfect for a unique parkour video. The shots you can get with the wire cam especially are beyond anything we've ever done before and its so much easier than a drone. We shot the project over a few months with the Ampisound team and some of our friends, mostly grabbing one take wonders with the 360 cam on a long selfie pole. The editing for this project was particularly challenging, with lots of complicated reframing and transitions for the 360 footage.
Land Escape - 3 minutes
Portal - 3 minutes
Filmed in March 2019, during an expedition to the island of Olkhon, the purpose of which was the suspension and the passage of the slackline over the lake Baikal with a length of 62 meters at an altitude of about 100 meters.
Solstice - 5 minutes
A tribute to the shortest and coolest days of the year when the sun arcs low over the horizon and ice crystals linger in the air. The days skiers love more than any other.
Wibmer's Law - 8 minutes
Witness my escape from the daily life, a busy life. Traffic, chaos, commuters. Follow me on a journey through the streets of Austria where the city with all it's daily situations becomes my Playground.
