September has arrived and it’s time for the brands to roll out the big guns, show off their teasers, and get ready for the movie premieres. We’ve selected three more edits from this week that got our snowboard juices flowing. Pirate Movie Productions, Bear Mountain, and People Films stood out among the pack.
“Unique 8″ from Pirate Movie Production: The Euros are back in 2012 with another teaser that made us drool. While North America’s winter was a bit lack luster, the shredders featured in “Unique 8″ seemed to do pretty damn well overseas. This trailer is equipped with urban features that made us a bit nervous and powder sprays that made us a bit bitter. Gigi Ruf, Marco Feichtner, Arthur Longo, Nicolas Muller, Kalle Ohlson, Teo Konttinen, Chris Sorman, and Werni Stockare the eight riders that make up the cast. We think that’s enough talent to go around.
“Feature Factory” from Bear Mountain: Here’s another film from California’s Bear Mountain showing off how much better their park is than yours. “Feature Factory” displays all of the creative and progressive jib setups that Bear and Snow Summit conjured up along with a cluster of jib masters stomping endless amounts of tricks on them. This trailer also makes it seem like Bear never had a cloud in the sky. The mountain is full of natural hits, features for all levels, and a wide variety of jibs–and “Feature Factory” highlights all of it. The movie features Scott Stevens, Jussi Oksanen, Joe Sexton, Durell Williams, Scott Vine, Mikkel Bang, Spencer Schubert, Chris Bradshaw, Lucas Magoon, Daniel Brown, Zak Hale, Dylan Alito, Mark McMorris, Ethan Deiss, Brandon Hobush, Lauri Heiskari, Tim Eddy, Erik Leon, Dave Downing, Jonah Owen, and Hans Mindnich.
“Pretty Wise” from People Films: Last year’s “Good Look” premiere at the Oakley Headquarters was one for the books, and it’s almost as if everyone expects People Films to disappoint at some time or another. Yet they just keep one-upping themselves. “Pretty Wise” takes a different approach than past films–where they switch up the usual list of riders–and uses a group of 11 up-and-coming riders as well as three veterans. We think change is good and this little alteration is sure to bring more diversity and excitement to the film. In true People form, “Pretty Wise” takes us into the backcountry for some huge big mountain riding, into the streets for the stylish and burly urban snowboarding, and keeps the core youthful vibe of snowboarding alive. We’d be lying if we said we weren’t counting down the days until this one is released. Featuring Scot Brown, Shaun McKay, Johnny Lazz, Lonnie Kauk, Mark Carter, Robbie Walker, Jason Robinson, Shayne Pospisil, Marco Smolla, Rusty Ockenden, Will Lavigne, Jake Koia, Elias Elhardt, and Jason Dubois.
