sHORT FILM selection


DPS - The Space Within (The Shadow Campaign Volume IV, in association with Outdoor Research)

"Exploring the tidepools of a deserted tropical beach, a young boy finds a mysterious treasure washed upon the rocks. The space within whipsters of another world, holding magic unlike anything he has seen before."

Run Time - 5min 28sec


Salomon - Pedal to Peaks 2: Norway 

"A small team of skiers strapped an obnoxious amount of gear to bicycles and rode through arctic Norway.  Connecting craggy islands by underwater tunnels, they climbed and skied mountains along the length of the Lofoten archipelago.  Gear failed, partners bailed, and spirits waivered.  But after camping on snow-covered beaches, what they found at the end of the peninsula made them look deeper inside themselves and their motives."

Run Time - 8min 25sec


Burton - Hail Mary: A Snowboard Short 

"Introducing 'Hail Mary,' a snowboard short by Burton team rider Ben Ferguson and filmmaker Tyler Orton.  Driven by his pure passion for snowboarding, Ferguson documented a year in snowboarding for the 'World of X Games.'"

Run Time - 19min 46sec.
