Despite not being a snowboarder or even much of a skier, a few years ago I watched a snowboarding film called The Art of Flight. It was awesome.
It was made by Travis Rice, an up-and-coming snowboarder from Jackson, WY. The film had heavy financial backing from Red Bull and featured some incredible images. Think the BBC’s Planet Earth-style videography mixed with people heli-snowboarding down ridiculous avalanche-prone Alaskan mountains.
In addition to the impressive action shots and videography, The Art of Flight has a really killer soundtrack. It features two songs by The Naked and Famous: Young Blood and No Way–the Jam of the Week.
No Way is sweet and relaxing until it kicks the power on for a guitar solo chorus. Then it is relaxing again, until it is not. The calm and the intense continue to mix and meld throughout the song. I just love it and hope you do too.
