Competitive Freeskiing Movie Trailer, "Linescore" by Coreshot Films

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Finally, a current movie focused on the competitive big mountain freeskiing circuit. I've been waiting a long time to see a movie following who, IMO, are some of the best skiers in the world and they get very little recognition considering the risks they take. I've been really excited to see this since I heard about it early this year....and it looks like it's off to a great start with this trailer. Can't wait to see the finished product.

All I know is what's available on their website:


http://www.coreshotfilms.com/about.html

Coreshot films was founded in the fall of 2006 by O.J. Abben and Frank Foley. Both are Lake Tahoe residents whose goal is to show the lifestyle element behind ski filming. This new production company will focus on the athletes they are working with in a broader spectrum. Unlike the "strictly skiing to music" films of today, Coreshot Films will focus on behind the scenes aspects of skiing culture as well as the ongoing saga of their athlete's lives. This documentation hopes to shed light on an amazing sport and the characters who make it their life.

About this years film:

The Subaru U.S. Freeskiing Series events are scheduled at some of the best and most challenging resorts in the United States. Telluride, Colorado, Squaw Valley, California, Snowbird, Utah, Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Kirkwood, California are the five mountains hosting the events this year.

Coreshot films will have a crew of athletes and filmmakers to capture the action, lifestyle, and sacrifice of competing on the tour. Profiling not only the intense action of skiing in the competitions, but also constant behind the scenes documentation. Giving an in depth and exciting portrayal of life on the tour will be our mission.

Most Skiers in TGR and MSP were podium finishers in freeskiing events before they started filming

The world was given a sad reminder of those risks as recently as April:

Yes. RIP Neal Valiton. It was eerie skiing with him in the Kirkwood comp and then hearing about this tragedy just a few weeks later. From the trailer, it looks as though Neal will have a few shots in the film at the very very least.

This is a great and thought provoking article on the subject:

Any idea whether they're planning a tour, or just DVD sales?

Not sure. I'm hoping there will be at the very least a premier showing somewhere around South Lake since that's where these guys are based out of.

It'll be nice to buy a ski movie with a good narrative and some quality competition (instead of the usual ski porn).

Seconded. That's a great idea.

great stuff Shoe, really cool project and teaser. PM me if you guys end up wanting to do a tour and need some $upport.

In my opinion, people who shred big mountain are probably the most talented, as well as brave skiers in the world.

Respect.

Echoing PhilT, many of the Matchstick guys graduated from freeskiing before they became "movie stars.

Be advised that the production quality in the latest MSP movie Push is really excellent, and the soundtrack is fantastic. Anyone ever hear of Pinback, with their tune Fortress. Really excellent music.

^^^BUMP!^^^

Bumping this back to the top because the movie is shipping and I just watched it today.

If you're a fan of big-mountain comp skiing, or just curious about it, are thinking about entering a comp, or would just really like to see skiers destroying in-bounds resort terrain that nearly anyone can ski (i.e. rather than your typical exotic location movie segments)...then get this film!

It does a great job in following two skiers (Craig Garbiel and Josh Daiek) around through each and every US Tour stop (Telluride, Snowbird, Jackson, Squaw, and Kirkwood. it's amazing to watch these guys throw down in every concievable conditions from pow (which anybody can do) to filling-rattling hardpack and ice (i.e. the Jackson comp & Telluride & parts of Kirkwood). Some of the Jackson billy-goat footage by Griffin Post is just unreal considering the conditions these guys were facing.....

the production isn't as polished as some of the bigger movie production companies (i.e. TGR, WM, MSP, etc.), but the skiing seems more 'real' to me, and it's got a great grassroots vibe.

I've seen 3 ski movies so far this year (PNW by Theory-3, IDEA by Eric Iberg, and Linescore) and Linescore is by far my fave of the 3 (followed by PNW then IDEA I'd say...)

I rate it two thumbs up and 5 golden popcorns

:::::



(plus I snagged some shots in the movie in the Kirkwood Day 2 segment and in the Kirkwood qualiying bonus footage so I am stoked!!! but not biased in any way I swear )

Awesome. I am stoked to see this movie since I hard about it 2-3 weeks ago. I have seen some comp footage from other movies and online and always wondered why there wasn't a documentary of these guys sorta like hoop dreams or whatever. :

Any chance anybody knows the dates for each location for this years tour? I know they wont be technically released for another few weeks but I'm wondering if anyone has the inside scoop.

I'de be pumped if the JH dates matched up with the week I'm going. But then again it might close of some sick terrain off the headwall.......

Dangit....we gotta talk about this idea.

Problem is....the bozz has no advert $$ to spend. OTH, we just got somewhere over 600 for the film premier in the store last Saturday. (And it was a danged snowboard flick)

Bring some ammo later this week when you come in with your boots. I'd love to do this, but we'd have to figure a way to get sayyyyy 400 or so to make it work.

BTW...we already sell the vid.
