Project: Sammy Carlson / OVER TIME
Role: Director / D.O.P
“What you are, and what you become, depends on how you use your time.”
Sammy Carlson and CK9 Studios’ new project OVER TIME is a reminder to make your hours count. There are a lot of unknowns in creating a high caliber ski film. You need a vision. You need storms to deliver snow. You need the weather to work in your favor. You need to consistently be at the top of your game. You need a good crew. You need good terrain. And more than anything, you need time for all of these things to align. Filmed purely in the heart of the backcountry, Over Time’s got it all: Powder, pillows, lines, backcountry booters, and incredible follow-cams.
It’s beautifully filmed and, of course, the skiing speaks for itself. We hope it inspires you to use your time wisely. It’s always snowing somewhere.
Project: Grind Now, Shine Later
Chris Boucher wasn’t supposed to be in the NBA. But he is. ‘Grind Now, Shine Later’ is the story of how he made it this far. It’s that unlikely underdog tale told again and again, but never ceases to amaze. It’s about overcoming adversity, against all odds, and turning negatives into positives. It’s about inspiring others through action. It’s about grinding now so you can shine later.
Project: Children Of The Columbia
Role: Cinematographer + Drone Pilot
Join big mountain skiers Dane Tudor and Christina Lustenberger as they travel up the waterway that shaped them, the mighty Columbia, home to some of the best skiing in the world. From Trail through Revelstoke and on to Kinbasket Lake, through the famed Selkirks, Monashees and Rocky Mountains, Dane and “Lusti” move northwards through a unique mountain culture. A land of stark contrast, where dams and development give way to wilderness, massive snows, and a sea of peaks.
