In case you have been recently comatose or in the 8% of the world where Facebook and the internet don't exist then you know that the new BrainFarm Travis Rice movie, The Art of Flight, has been released. Hopefully you've seen a big screen HD version otherwise you are missing out. Well, actually, I wouldn' know cause I haven't seen it yet but that's what I'm told. I'm holding out for Wednesday's Vancouver premier where I will be front row with my 3D glasses and garbage bag of popcorn.
I was lucky enough to go on a trip with Travis, Mark Landvik and the BrainFarm crew to Southern Chile's Patagonia region almost one year ago to the day. Followers of this blog will have seen those posts. If not, go here.
Now a year later, the movie is out. There is also a very limited edition book that contains some of my photos from that trip to Chile. I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure it's awesome. I will have copies soon and if I get enough we'll be doing a giveaway for sure.
In honour of the anticipation of the movie and book and a good night out on Wednesday, here are some unseen outtakes from my trip to Chile with BrainFarm Cinema. Hopefully I'll have some photos from the premier night as well:
Look really close and you'll see Antarctica..........Ok, not actually but it was only about a 1000 kms away as the crow flies.
Travis with the Red, White and Blue.
Apparently there are a lot of these in the movie.
If you were following the original blog posts you would know that we had less than ideal snow conditions on this trip. On an off day we took the super charged Chilean military helicopter to the moon. This is director Curt Morgan after being told by the heli pilot that he couldn't bring any moon rocks home with him.
This is Alejo, our Chilean logistics coordinator. He spends his summers guiding in Antarctica. He had so many stories and became the trip guru. You just never knew what he was going to say next.
This is Fan Fan (Stefan) our french ski guide. His home base is Chamonix so he knows how to get really gnarly.
Rice and Landvik charging to the next unknown, unexplored descent.
Alejo once again just because he was so fucking cool.............
