Check out the second teaser for Matt Devino's forthcoming snowboard documentary 'Definition: Snowboarding'.
Snowboarding means completely different things to different people. From spinning to win at contests to getting as far out into the backcountry and soul turning until you can soul turn no more, to hiking a street rail, the paths and attitudes in snowboarding vary massively.
Definition: Snowboarding will be an in-depth look into all of the genres of snowboarding through the eyes of those who live it.
Matt Devino has set out to create a documentary that will show all the different sides of snowboarding in a way that will be engaging and insightful to the uninitiated. More often than not, the general public views snowboarding as an 'extreme sport' illustrated by the homogeneity of competitive snowboarding.
As we all know, there is much more to snowboarding than spinning your way to the top of a podium and we think that this movie, with testimonials from a huge spectrum of professional snowboarders, will be an interesting watch.
Shaun Palmer perhaps says it best: "I think snowboarding is fucking freedom".
What is Snowboarding? A sport? A lifestyle? An art form? Or, is it something completely different? It’s not a simple question and it has an unlimited number of answers…
Definition: Snowboarding will be an in-depth look into all of the genres of snowboarding through the eyes of those who live it. “We plan to create a film with the support of core snowboarding that will welcome the general public into our lives," says project director, Matt Devino, “and to share the complete picture of riding rather that just the homogenized competitive X Games style of riding most people associate with snowboarding. Ultimately, we want to inspire new people to go snowboarding for the first time, and reinvigorate current riders to get out there and enjoy their boards more often and continue to live the dream."
Definition: Snowboarding is two year project to be released in the Fall of 2015. It will include dozens of interviews and document all aspects of riding and the lifestyle that encompasses it. Interviews will be shot over the course of 2014, and exclusive riding footage will be shot during the winter of 2014/2015.
