Kimmy Fasani is a frontrunner in women’s snowboarding, and her dedication to the sport has earned her the chance to work with renowned snowboard filmmaker Standard Films.
Last season, Kimmy spent time in the Northwest backcountry to score a part in Standard’s highly anticipated 2012 release “2112.” The film premiered last week in Denver in front of a bunch of rowdy riders, so we caught up with Kimmy to chat about what it’s like to work with Standard, and what the highlights of the premiere were.
How long have you been filming with Standard, and what’s your favorite part of filming with the legendary company?
I have been filming with Standard for three seasons now. Having an opportunity to work with Mike Hatchett and Travis Robb has been amazing. They have been making movies for 21 years and to have a video part in that stack of history is pretty humbling.
Where did you film with Standard?
I spent a couple months of my season in the Northwest, which was cool. There was a lot of snow, and I got to explore a bit.
What were the standout moments from the “2112″ premiere in Denver?
We had a great turnout for the premiere, and it’s always fun to hear people cheering for the movie. Seeing all the people getting amped for the season gets me more excited!
What is your favorite part of Standard’s “2112″?
My favorite parts are the ones with Fredi Klabermatten and Victor and Xavier De La Rue. They all killed it!
What was the craziest thing you witnessed at the Denver premiere?
When we were throwing out free stuff before the movie people were on the floor wrestling for it. That’s always entertaining!
What was the overall vibe of the premiere in Denver?
The premiere was great. The People movie and the Shaun Palmer movie played before Standard’s, so the energy was really high and everyone seemed really hyped on the movies. Snowboard Colorado did a really good job organizing the event.
What are you most looking forward to this winter season?
I am looking forward to riding a lot of powder and I’ll be spending the early season in Mammoth, California, shredding park. Excited that another season is around the corner.
