It’s time to break the silence and shout from the mountains that the Jib-Vid is back, and with Oakley as title sponsor, Europe’s premier riding and filming event is guaranteed to raise the bar yet again in 2008. The Oakley Jib-Vid is also relocating to Mayrhofen, where the Vans Penken Park will provide the backdrop to much of this years riding and filming, whilst Scotland Yard Bar holds the Jib-Vid poker party and the Arena Sports Bar hosts the premier screening of all the films and the awards ceremony before starting up the biggest party in town.
2008 brings new challenges for the teams, amateur and professional alike, with a bigger park to play with and new terrain to discover, but past experience indicates that storytelling and creativity are key ingredients to any winning Jib-Vid. With the competition open to all (entries are limited to 15 teams, see the website for all details) walking away with the coveted Oakley Jib-Vid title will go to any ski/snowboard/film trio that has an innovative idea and the skills to transfer it onto film.
Each team of three has 26 hours to film, edit and produce their own perfect two minute Oakley Jib-Vid, a task which can mean no sleep for most involved. The reward comes in the shape of a limited edition Oakley Jib-Vid cheque along with some great extra prizes, and with the great parties and unique competition experience full of good times and memories it is sure to become the highlight of any season or holiday.
Check out the event website for all the details including the top 10 films from 2007, the schedule, entry forms and resort information. You can also listen to the Jib-Vid jukebox, from which the teams choose tracks for their Jib-Vid film, and it is a unique opportunity to hear the freshest new beats and talents the music industry has to offer.
So, put some film where your ideas are or just book that time off you need to get some snow and good times in your life!!! We can guarantee you an unforgettable experience but ask not to be held responsible when you need another holiday to make up for your lack of sleep!
