This is the first of the shots coming out of the Montreal/Quebec City, Canada urban trip I did back in March with Level 1 Productions with Tom Wallisch, Phil Casabon, Corey Vanular and Level 1 filmer Freedle Coty. The Pyramids, as we called it was one of the must do features on this trip and in the end we really couldn’t have asked for much more on this feature. These weird objects are actually skylights for some sort of building underneath the walkway that we were on top of. The weather had crapped out on us earlier and dropped a lot of rain on us in true Eastern Canada fashion and melted out a lot of the snow we had. Fortunately we are good at shoveling and were able to dig a (huge) in-run to jib and air out of the pyramids. With the glass on the pyramids, it was pretty impossible for me to avoid using gels on this one, as you can see. So aside from the extra time spent digging in rotten snow, and almost getting kicked out this turned out as good as we could have hoped. This shot is Tom Wallisch, shifty 180’ing over the blue pyramid in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on the inside back cover of the 2010 Freeskier Magazine Buyer’s Guide.

I’m stoked. Why? This is the third year in a row Rage Films has gone with one of my shots for their DVD cover. I spent a lot of time with the Rage crew, of course a lot this Spring as well at the park shoots. The last three have come from those park shoots as well, last year this one at Stevens Pass, WA. This year, the little Asian brother Derek Spong got the cover. It’s from the shoot at Mt. Bachelor in Bend, Oregon. If you haven’t seen the teaser yet from the upcoming movie “Pretty Good” check it out here.
