Solid Powder 2 – 3rd episode

The filming of the third episode of the Solid Powder- series, Internet distributed skiing- and snowboard movie,
is proceeding as planned. While the main focus has been on the Scandinavian scene, the cameras have been rolling all the way from France to Japan and the US. Without a doubt the biggest sessions were held at a brand new Snow Park in Levi, Finland. Some of the biggest jumps ever seen this far up north were captured from a helicopter giving awesome bird-eye views of the action.
The filming will proceed all the way to the end of July, the next stop being the Lyngen-fjords in Norway and Riksgransen resort in northern Sweden.

We would like to get all the tapes before 15th of June.

Here are some practical tips that are worth while considering when filming and sending us tapes.

– Send a tape that only includes the best tricks. It saves us a lot of time when we don't have search the whole tape for good stuff.

– Use a tripod whenever possible.

– You can do wonders with different types of lenses.Don't bother with the really cheap ones, though. They don't do anyone justice.

– Mini DV's have the ability to capture sound pretty well. Keep this in mind when you're filming rails.

– All tapes have an internal timeline. Try to avoid cutting this timeline, since it makes the capture of clips a real b***h… Use the End Search- function of the camera whenever possible.

– You don't necessarily need a 3 CCD camera to get good stuff. However, single chips are only sufficient when the weather is perfect. Don't bother taking the camera out if it's cloudy.

– Label the tape(s) clearly and include your contact information with it.

– Unfortunately we can not guarantee you any dough of the tapes, but hey, how does your trick in front of world wide audience sound?

– Please send us MiniDV, DVCam or better tapes.

– Contact us before you decide send anything.
