Read how it happened and watch all the movies now!

So, the 2009 edition of the Oakley Jib-Vid has come and gone and left all who were present amped on the insane level of films that were produced. Now that the hangovers from the epic premiere night party have finally abated, we can bring you a run down of what went down along with giving you a chance to watch all the films right here.

Pre-premiere dinner.

After a day on the mountain with a best trick comp going down on the Jib-Vid Nessie that saw a solid turn out of riders, locals and punters alike, attention focussed once more on the main event. The location for the premiere had been moved downstairs into the more expansive Arena nightclub to give even more people the chance to take in the crew’s creations and it looked proper good to boot, with a cordoned off area where the teams would sit and judge and plenty of room for the masses to get a good view of the films. And masses there were as word had spread round Mayrhofen drawing all and sundry with a penchant for shredding and partying like bugs to a flame.

Getting ready for Team Meth-Headz 3D affair.

From witnessing the action in the park and beyond on Friday it was clear that the riding had gone up a notch, and from the moment the first films were shown it was apparent that the filming, editing and ideas the crew had been working on had stepped it up to the same degree. From Team Grenade’s Scarface-inspired shootout, complete with Molotov cocktails, to the screaming wit of The Aristocratic Style Police of Death in Team Chamonix 9000VerticalFeet’s affair; the bold madness of Team Burton who got the 3 park shots and then actually jetted to the Milton Keynes Snowzone to film their riding to the powder angle taken by The Strangers team; the post production effects and anal close up of Team Whitelines, the self-spanking secrets of Tyler Chorlton in Oakley Snowboard’s vid or the dark arthouse from The Seeker and Lift Op Productions teams.

3rd for Team Onboard.

Judged by their peers and 3 external judges, the scoring was broken down into riding (60%), filming (20%), editing (20%) and creativity (20%) and after the initial round of screenings it was only those that managed to marry those criteria most successfully that would get the chance to be shown, and judged, again to determine the final standings. With the bar at a higher level than ever before it proved interesting to see what had made the cut.

2nd place for the Oakley Tigers.

In no particular order, the top 5 were announced: Onboard, O’Neill/Isenseven, Meth-Headz, Oakley Tigers and Protest all had great shredding, tight editing, and legit filming. After the films had been shown a final time it was ‘drum roll please’ time and the final results were announced. 5th place went to Richard Prendagast, Kalle Ohlson and Chris Sörman of Team Meth-Headz whose über-ambitious 3D offering, though buggered slightly in the encoding process, worked good and had everyone looking like we were in a US drive-in cinema in the 50s with 3D glasses stuck on their faces.

Speaker extraordinaire Henry Jackson and event bossman Graham MacVoy.

4th went to the Protest team for their amusing offering that involved a couple of aliens crash landing in the Zillertal and needing 4999 euros to buy a new engine to get home. Fortunately, the Jib-Vid prize was 5000 euros and so the aliens robbed local riders and got on it in the park, to finish with the plea to ‘Please help us get home.’ Funny. Last year’s winners, our own Team Onboard, had a sequel to their previous effort, Joonas 3000, with the nefarious robot Joonas Mustonen plaguing the dreams of young Niki Korpela in a Michael Gondry-inspired dream sequence. Niki was damned close to nailing the front 10 double cork too, but had to settle for the Best Trick award for his regular front 10.

Party time for Team Onboard’s Niki Korpela and Joonas Mustonen.

In second place was the Oakley Tigers team of Fips Strauss, Erik Botner and Niko Jentsch who, in a deviation from the Jib-Vid norm, dispensed with the idea of making a film with any kind of concept and instead let the filming, riding and editing do the talking. The camerawork bagged them the Best Filming award too. But in first place were Jib-Vid debutants O’Neill/Isenseven comprised of riders Frederik Evensen and Andre Kuhlman, and filmer Alex Schiller. Their film Technical Difficulties 2.0 was a killer concept involving malfunctioning camera equipment making the black and white-attired riders switch mid trick and had solid riding, a banging soundtrack and great editing.

Kalle Ohlson and Chris Sörman were stoked.

With the awards wrapped up it was time for the party, a debauched affair the likes of which Ollie Reed would have been proud. Anna Greenwood dropped some Guilty Pleasures tunes, followed by the heavy beats of the Drunken Masters, fluoro zinc was spashed around with gay abandon, t-shirts and pants were torn and, obviously, booze was flowing.

With monumental hangovers and memories of good time, we have now left the valley, but mad thanks to all involved at the Oakley Jib-Vid and we look forward to the next edition that doubtless will step it up once more. We hear Rice, Morgan and Landvik are placing pre-orders for gyroscopically stabled heli cams in Billa markt right now… Enjoy the visual feast.
