The crew that went to town to tackle making "The Art of Flight" apparently got into some shit. When you are involved in something as huge and awesome as this film, things are bound to go wrong a few times. Here's the most recent teaser from Red Bull showing that their latest project wasn't exactly a cake walk. Lots of yelling, swearing, overturned snowmobiles, and falling.
Get ready for the world premiere in NYC tomorrow - Wednesday Sept 7.
It's Travis Rice's world and we're apparently just living in it. The tidal wave of ridiculous riding and talent that is "The Art of Flight" has made more moves in making us antsy for it's release. The latest World of Red Bull TV spot showcases T. Rice and more insane footage from "AoF". The world premiere of Red Bull and Brain Farm's most recent project is next week in New York City and is shaping up to be absolutely banger.
Are you ready to have your mind blown?
The second teaser for Brain Farm Cinema's two-year project "The Art of FLIGHT" may cause a bit of cerebral damage. The high-intensity shredding from the world's top snowboarders combined with cutting edge cinematography is so insane your little brain may not be able to handle it.
Travis Rice, Red Bull Media and the whole Brain Fram Cinema Crew have truly outdone themselves with this project and the magnitude of this movie is evident simply from the teasers. There hasn't been a snowboard film that's pushed the limits like this since the crew's last project "That's it, That's All," and "The Art of Flight" is gearing up to be even better. The second teaser provides an explosive look into the crew's ridiculous global shred adventure.
Yep. That just happened.

Santa Monica, California (July 11, 2011) - Brace yourself for a new breed of action sports film as Red Bull Media House, in association with Brain Farm Digital Cinema, present "The Art of FLIGHT," a Curt Morgan film. Premiering September 7, 2011 at New York City's Beacon Theatre, "The Art of FLIGHT" combines meaningful storytelling and character development with sport progressing action, all captured on state-of-the-art filmmaking equipment, much of which has been custom designed just for this project.
Equal parts stunning action and harrowing adventure mix with the inevitable drama encountered along the way, presenting viewers with an exclusive opportunity to experience these endeavors virtually firsthand. With unprecedented access, the audience will share in the experience as snowboarder Travis Rice, along with a cast of the best riders in the world, complete a two-year quest to redefine what's possible on a snowboard.
"Through the riders' full immersion into the making of this film, we are able to show in the truest way what it is like it for us to travel to some of the most remote places on earth and search out the most dynamic terrain and conditions," says Rice. "Our triumphs and tribulations are conveyed in this darker, more dramatic film. Throughout we walk a fine line between when to keep pushing it and when to pull back."
Rice handpicks his accomplices from a list of the best snowboarders of our time including two-time Rider of the Year John Jackson, Mark Landvik, Olympic medalist Scotty Lago, Nicolas Muller, DCP, Jake Blauvelt, Pat Moore, Jeremy Jones and more. Join in their sometimes successful, often trying quest to open up new mountain zones and approach unexplored mountains from completely unique angles. Chilean Patagonia's Darwin Range, Alaska's Tordrillo Range, Wyoming's Snake River Range, Aspen, Colorado, the Andes, as well as British Columbia's Kootenay Mountains, Revelstoke and Goat Range are the stage for this epic production.
Brain Farm Cinema captures the dramatic beauty of the culture, wildlife and of course snowboarding on their ever-expanding arsenal of filmmaking technology and tools. Stabilized aerial cinematography from the Cineflex V14 mixes with the Phantom HD Gold's ultra slow motion footage, point-of-view angles and countless other cameras and tools to create this unique, immersive look at snowboarding.
"The Art of FLIGHT" comes to Blu-ray™, DVD and iTunes worldwide on September 8, 2011. Check out the trailer and learn more about the film at http://www.artofflightmovie.com.
It's time for another one. The Frends Crew has dropped the latest edition of FrendsVision and it's one of the funniest to date. In this episode the crew is in Aspen, Colorado filming with Brain Farm Cinemas for the Art of Flight.
This highly anticipated two-year project is the follow up to That's it, That's all and it's supported by Red Bull and Travis Rice.
As far as snowboard films, this production is as mega as it gets and and all the pressure is visibly wearing on the Frends Crew.
Scotty Lago, Danny Davis, Jack and Luke Mitrani all appear to be at their wits end and hilarity ensues as they try to push through the tiring shoot.
From the starting gym scene, to Kevin Pearce's cameo, and Scotty Lago's sweet dance moves, you'll be highly entertained throughout the whole thing.
Who knew Scotty Lago had such a temper? In this extra footage from the Art of Flight shoot in Aspen, Scotty goes crazy on Eric Willett for a minor mistake while salting the jump. It's all fun and games until someone salts the landing.
