Seth Hill has been climbing the ranks of pro snowboardism for the past few years. He broke onto the scene as a contest rider but has since reestablished himself as a well-rounded ripper, thanks in part to several respectable video parts he’s produced.
Last season, in addition to filming with Wild Card Movies, Hill filmed with Colorado-based film company Aunti Radd for their entertaining full-length film “Mother Falcon Ship.” Hill’s full part just dropped, so we got in touch with him for the low-down on what the project was all about, how he got so good at jibbing, and what’s on the agenda this season, in this edition of Say Anything.
Your full part for Mother Falcon Ship just dropped; can you tell us about this project?
This project was a pretty awesome experience. Honestly, it was kind of a bonus part for me. I was already in the process of filming my part for Wild Card Movies’ “Shred-A-Vision” and was just looking for a good crew of dudes to film with when I was in back in Colorado. I had worked with Brenden Barry at HCSC, so I knew he had skills behind the lens and when a buddy introduced the rest of the Aunti Radd crew to me (James and Travis) I knew they’d be producing something awesome. “Mother Falcon Ship” just had a good vibe; the crew was always down to work hard and do whatever we could to get shots. Plus everyone was nothing but smiles and had a good attitude the entire time we were filming.
The first part of your section is heavy with jib shots–when did you become so sick at the rail game?
I wouldn’t say I’m sick at the rail game, but I’ve always dabbled at hitting street stuff. About five years ago, I worked on a film project that had some street stuff in it, and since then I haven’t really dedicated much time to it. When I had this opportunity with to film a couple parts with MFS, I figured it was a good time to get back on the grind.
Where did you spend most of your time filming for this project?
Ninety-five percent of the video was filmed in Colorado, but a couple jump shots are from Hood this summer. One shot is from Europe, but overall, the rail shots are from Denver and Boulder.
If you had to pick your favorite trick, from one location in your part, what would it be?
That’s a hard one. I think I’m most stoked on the Miller Flip over the fence with the Denver skyline behind it. Not only did cameraman James Mccotter kill it behind the lens, but also it was a unique location and I had really wanted to get a cool Miller Flip shot in my part.
Who are you filming with this season, and what other awesomeness do you have up your sleeve this winter?
Haha, well depending on what Aunti Radd is doing, I’ll be trying to work with them again. Most of my efforts still will be going towards contests and trying to stay on the level with all the amazing contest riders. With that said, I will be filming with Wild Card again out in the Northwest. The Wild Card Crew is pretty unique–it’s nice to really get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Plus, I’m from the Northwest, so it’s nice to be back there; I have a super motivated crew, my snowmobile is there, and it’s kind of a new terrain for me.
