It’s been exactly one month since Antti Autti dropped the official teaser for his brand new movie ‘Approach and Attack’ – a project two years in the making following him and his homies deep into the backcountry across seven far-flung locations. Luckily for us Antti shot enough material and decided to release one of his backcountry edits. Sweet!
“Snowboarding in the trees is the best type of snowboarding I know! There is something magical when you are riding in this very stunted scenery. It sometimes feels like I need to achieve this feeling of getting lost to actually realize that in the nature Im purely driven by completely focused motivation” – Antti
Approach & Attack by Anttisworld & Northlight Pictures is scheduled to be released fall 2014. This FULL PART edit showcases Antti’s tree riding footage from winter 2013 while filming for Approach & Attack. It’s difficult not to get jealous when you watch Antti riding those perfect conditions in Japan, Norway and British Columbia. And the shot of his last line, pfff..
About Approach and attack:
Antti Autti is a prime example of a snowboarder who ditched the stress and pressures of competitive snowboarding to follow his passion and do his own thing. Once an Olympic pipe rider, Antti has since focused his efforts on finding the best snow and exploring the most remote and exciting reaches of our planet. And we certainly don’t blame him.
Approach and Attack follows him and his homies’ journey around the globe, where they experience a ton of different cultures along the way – from living with the Car Danchi crew in Japan to finding out how the locals in Alaska can ride such steep lines on such a low budget. The crew have been shooting for the movie all season and if the latest teaser is anything to go by, it’s going to be nothing short of epic.
Approach and Attack will feature the riding of: Antti Autti, Will Jackways, Tyler Chorlton, Alvaro Vogel, Saku Tiilikainen, Miikka Hast, Joel Lahti, Sylvain Bourbossoun and more and was shot in: Tamok, Norway; Hokkaido, Japan; Niigata, Japan; British Columbia, Canada and the Southern Alps, New Zealand.
