The traditional action sports formula is matching fast paced action, with a catchy song. After several years of being a professional skier, producer Leah Evans wanted to disrupt this formula. She wanted to capture the feeling of the trip through the soundtrack as well as the visuals. She set out to assemble a team who could translate the feeling of backcountry skiing and the landscape into song. Last Winter 4 musicians and 4 athletes traveled into a backcountry cabin where musicians wrote and recorded music live in a cabin while the riders explored the terrain and great snow conditions. The soundtrack was inspired by place, and reflects the feeling and landscape they were recorded in. The goal is tying together a more complete story of backcountry skiing among friends.
Jamie Tanner started his career in NYC working for Atlantic Records filming tour blogs and music videos for Philadelphia rock band Circa Survive. Knowing he wanted to pursue film as a career he then studied Fine Arts at the University of Victoria. Once completing his degree, he gravitated to the outdoors and transitioned into filming action sport and skiing. His love for wild landscapes and shared adventure with likeminded individuals has him continually inspired and loving the opportunity to tell story through film.
