Check out a nice looking teaser from the new RAD Movie Production crew out of Switzerland.
Judging by the teaser, which has an upbeat vibe and some solid riding in it, 'Olympiks' is set to be a well-rounded flick with pow kickers, slashes, a spot of urban riding and more.
We haven't come across any of the riders in the line up before, but if the quality of the teaser is anything to go by, this is shaping up to be a rad grass-roots production, which can only be a good thing for the Swiss snowboard scene. Big props guys!
Keep an eye out for the full Olympiks movie, dropping in December 2014.
Featuring: Markus Stoffel, Yannick Imboden, Roberto Zumstein, Valentin Zimmermann, William Arnold, Jonas Zbinden, Matthias Schwestermann, Tim Basler, Ariana Bellwald
All riding took place in Switzerland (Wallis). Our movie is all mountain. We got a lot of freeride, BC-Natural, BC-Kicker, Urban! It's all mixed up! Every Rider rides all-terrain. We will have like 5 full parts, 1 friendspart. No Park-Riding!
There is a story behind the name Olympiks, which the Trailer doesn't tell yet. Our intro is gonna be based on Summer-Olympic Sports. We gonna film that on a sportplatz. We gonna film like running, ball butt, etc. as a competition starring the riders. We gonna do this sports like really serious and competing. Olympiks with k should be ironic and kind of a critic on the seriousness of olympics. The story should question, if snowboarders should be athletes or if snowboarding should be the lifestyle it was, more like skateboarding. But we don't want to offense nobody because we have a lot of good friends in this snowboard-competing lifestyle. We just want to represent our independent lifestyle!
The exact story is still in progress!
