This past April, the Rome SDS was one of four brands selected to participate in the first annual Transworld Team Shoot Out. It was a week-long, resort-bound contest to make a short video and shoot photos. Rome teamed up with Big Bear Mountain and brought in Bjorn Leines, LNP, Marie-France Roy, Eiki Helgason and Will Lavigne to do the shredding. Over the course of a week, the crew spent seven days, or more accurately seven nights, filming a short shred flick called “A Hard Days Night". The film will be released exclusively through iTunes on July 27th 2009, in a package with the three other videos in the contest.
The Team Shoot Out was a “contest" of progression and creativity, through film, photography, and feature construction. Transworld Snowboarding invited four teams, paired them up with four separate mountains and gave each team seven days to build and seven days to shred and shoot. Each team had five riders, two filmers and one photographer. Once the brands submitted their films in early June, Transworld got together a panel of people they trust to pick the winner based on the creativity of the video and the photos.
You can get a sneak peak of the teaser for the Rome film now on Rome's Shred TV; and be sure to check back on July 27th to download the entire movie from iTunes.
