Anybody else excited???
Hmm, did you try putting it on a lower setting?
It looks great, I doubt it will come within a 100 miles of me...
100 miles? It won't come within 3000 miles of me.
I would love to see the movie come to CT. The Warren Miller is playing at the Bushnell in Harford CT. on Nov. 11. I will be going to that. Greg Stump needs to have his movie play there.
Would anyone out there like to produce their own movie? I could edit.

Made it to the preview last night. 2 1/2 hour drive each way, but well worth it. Almost full house, raucous crowd, several ski legends in attendance, including Kim Reichhelm, Chris Davenport, and especially John Clendenin, which was cool for me because Thanksgiving evening I watched "The Performers" with a couple of friends, and footage from "The Performers" was featured in "Legend". Scott Schmidt was also in attendance, and came onstage briefly. Alas, no Hattrup or Plake.
"Legend", if you haven't seen the trailer, is a bit of a history of ski films, including interviews with Warren Miller, John Jay, and Dick Barrymore, and footage from some of their films, as well as some incredible film of a young champion ballet skier, Gregory Stump. "Blizzard" is featured prominently in the middle, including additional footage from that time and some back-story on the making-of and how Plake actually came to be in the film. The last part of the film dealt with TGR, Matchstick and others who were inspired by "Blizzard" and evolved the form from there.
This was a preview, not a premiere, so even after 2 1/2 years it's still a work in progress, and may well change before/if it ever gets released to DVD. But I think all you diehards will enjoy it thoroughly, as I did, when you get the chance.
The Baron came out for a few words before the film began...
Everyone who attended was offered a free poster...
I was pretty damn happy (and grateful) to be able to be able to ski a little bit today, and very inspired by thoughts of all those great skiers doing their thing!
