Argon Films just released their second teaser for their upcoming movie project. Instead of boring you with a lengthy press release they sent us an interview with the Austrian shred legend Chris Kröll. Here it is in all its glory:
A few days prior to the „Incredible Project“ Session in Sölden, we heard rumors about another big jump in Alta Badia in South Tyrol. In front of the beautiful Dolomites, a quite huge 20 meter jump was built and was just perfect to prepare for the special element in Soelden. Additionally it was time to test the remote cameracopter for the first time. Chris Kröll was part of the gang and we asked him some questions.
Hey Chris, tell us a little bit about the new movieproject from „Argon Films“
Hey. Actually I am quite happy to be involved in this project because all those guys know how to produce good shots. Me and all other riders are pretty motivated and we will see what comes up in the next years!
How was your Season so far?
Pretty good and without injuries! I rode a lot of contests and as always tried to collect photo- and videoshots.
How was the session in Alta Badia?
The weather was just perfect: To ride this jump in front of the massive Dolomites during the sunset was really special, but watch the clip and you know what I mean.
In Sölden and in Alta Badia you filmed with a remote helicopter. How is it different, as a rider, to normal filming?
As these things cannot stay in the air forever, everything tends to be a little bit more stressy. All riders are waiting in a row and have to drop in fast, one after one! Once you get used to that its all good.
Do the riders motivate themselves even more because they know that its really worth it?
Definitely! Everybody knows that you dont get these angles on a daily basis and therefore charges as hard as possible.
What do you expect from the finished Argon movie in fall?
Just a cool movie, which will give a push to the austrian scene and the austrian snowboardfilm business!
The next Teaser from Argon films will be released soon and then ist all about nightshoots. Stay tuned!
