September 2, 2011
Brace yourself for a new breed of action sports film as Red Bull Media House, in association with Brain Farm Digital Cinema, present "The Art of Flight" a Curt Morgan film. Premiering September 7, 2011 at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, “The Art of FLIGHT” combines meaningful storytelling and character development with sport progressing action, all captured on state-of-the-art filmmaking equipment, much of which has been custom designed just for this project.
Equal parts stunning action and harrowing adventure mix with the inevitable drama encountered along the way, presenting viewers with an exclusive opportunity to experience these endeavors virtually firsthand. With unprecedented access, the audience will share in the experience as snowboarder Travis Rice, along with a cast of the best riders in the world, complete a two-year quest to redefine what’s possible on a snowboard.
“Through the riders’ full immersion into the making of this film, we are able to show in the truest way what it is like it for us to travel to some of the most remote places on earth and search out the most dynamic terrain and conditions,” says Rice. “Our triumphs and tribulations are conveyed in this darker, more dramatic film. Throughout we walk a fine line between when to keep pushing it and when to pull back.”
Rice handpicks his accomplices from a list of the best snowboarders of our time including two-time Rider of the Year John Jackson, Mark Landvik, Olympic medalist Scotty Lago, Nicolas Muller, DCP, Jake Blauvelt, Pat Moore, Jeremy Jones and more. Join in their sometimes successful, often trying quest to open up new mountain zones and approach unexplored mountains from completely unique angles. Chilean Patagonia’s Darwin Range, Alaska’s Tordrillo Range, Wyoming’s Snake River Range, Aspen, Colorado, the Andes, as well as British Columbia’s Kootenay Mountains, Revelstoke and Goat Range are the stage for this epic production.

Stabilized aerial cinematography from the Cineflex V14 mixes with the Phantom HD Gold’s ultra slow motion footage, point-of-view angles and countless other cameras and tools to create this unique, immersive look at snowboarding.“The Art of FLIGHT” comes to Blu-ray™, DVD and iTunes worldwide on September 8, 2011.
