Then we heard about this competition for the local “Bergfilmfestival” in Salzburg, AUT. Stating that the movie placing 1st will be shown at the festival. We did a quick brainstorming and started to work on some ideas. The short film you’re about to see is what we came up with. We roughly had 6 weeks of filming and spent 4 of those 6 weeks in Norway on a rock climbing trip. The whole team hopes you good folk out there enjoy what we ended up with!
Did we think it will be easy? Maybe?
Was it easy? No?
Was it one hell of a trip? Deinitely!
Even though we had supreme conditions in the Alps, we were eager to see what the rest of the world was like in terms of skiing. Japan impressed us with some of the nicest food and the realest people you will meet.
I hope you like the Video as much as we liked making it.
Eric Hjorleifson is not just a legendary skier, he is also a well known tinkerer. Known for his knowledge about ski boots and bindings he set out to conquer the world with the ultimate ski boot. Here is some of the work Second Unit Media has done documenting the progress of inventing and building a ski boot from scratch with the help of Fritz Barthel and “the dungeon”.
When Eric asked us to work with him we had little financial room for this project and not the best gear available at that time. We still wanted to be part of the project though since we knew that it is going to be game changing in the ski boot industry. Also the chance of working with Hoji was a big factor why we said yes.
