Official Teaser: Parkin Costain and Jake Hopfinger in “Dollar Short”

“What would happen if two skiers robbed a bank?” That’s the question Benshi Creative’s Caleb Chicoine and Alex D’Agostino asked themselves after spending a summer working as editors for TGR in Jackson Hole. No, there was no intention to go out and commit grand larceny – but when an idea sticks in the heads of two filmmakers, it tends to be worth following up on. That’s where Parkin Costain and Jake Hopfinger come in. The two young and hungry Montana-based shredders teamed up with Benshi to work on a film that captures the essence of skiing in a way many ski films don’t. Focusing on the authentic connections, drive, and dedication to shredding with friends, Benshi’s Dollar Short is a must-watch.

We bounced around a bunch of other ideas…we eventually circled back to this joke idea and just said “Screw it, what would happen if two skiers robbed a bank?” After that summer Alex and I moved back to Bozeman and we started to really pick this idea apart with the whole crew. We just kept playing off of the “what if” idea and let it roll, and eventually we came up with what you see in the film. I couldn’t be more grateful for this crew and all the hard work everyone dedicated to making this happen and for all of our sponsors. I feel like this is still just 5% of the way to where we want to take things as a crew and am psyched to get to work on the next one.

If there’s one question Kai Jones is probably sick of answering, it’s got to be “how old are you?” Maybe that’s his skiing’s fault, though. Take one look at the young Atomic Skis ripper, and you’d be scratching your head too. Well, in case you were wondering, Kai was 13 when he filmed for putting down mind-bending segments in Jackson Hole and Japan for the film. Teaming up with friends old (Tim Durtschi + Colter Hinchliffe) and new (literally everyone who skied in Jackson during this epic

The Day Nick Mcnutt Nearly Died in An Avalanche

Last season, while filming for , Nick McNutt’s worst case scenario became reality: he was fully buried in an avalanche. To make things worse, his avalanche beacon stopped transmitting during the slide, and it was only through a stroke of luck that his partners were able to rescue him. Avalanche rescue is already a difficult task, but without a working beacon, it becomes akin to finding a needle in a haystack.
