    These are amazing, the story, cinematography, picture quality, colours, music, theme, skiing... Just wow. Output them from my laptop to the LCD in my hotel room last night and it looked like Blu-ray. Everyone needs to watch these.

    Yep. About the most polished, beautiful ski segments I've laid eyes on in a long time. Nice work.

    I'm not sure if words can truly express how beautiful these films are.

    I'm simply stunned. (And really jealous).

    La Grave was incredible... Freshfield Icefield not so much, but a bit more interesting at the same time.

    Both great shorts!

    I'm pretty much gonna repeat what everyone has said....jesus, these shorts are amazing and how ski cinematography should be. Granted, these don't get me 'amped' to ride, but at the same time these communicate so much more of what it means to live the lifestyle. 100% soul.

    Thoroughly enjoyed the first two so far, the colors captured in Kashmir, awesome video cameras or processing. Loved the music choice a ton too, apparently by Ar Ramen, apparently his only good song. Totally creative editing, makes me think in new ways, ur using that software correctly

    Keep rockin em out this year!

    where's the full length feature film by those same filmers? that style is amazingly inspiring and captivating.

    I'm guessing it was done on 5Dmk2's, anybody know for sure?
