Party Hard, Ski Harder with Sean Pettit

A pro ski­er decides he wants to infuse the world of ski and snow­board films with a lit­tle Hol­ly­wood glam. Enter “Super Proof,” a pet project of pro ski­er Sean Pet­tit, along­side cin­eme­tog­ra­ph­er Bran­don Kel­ly and edi­tor Leigh Powis.

As if his plate weren’t full enough with mul­ti­ple ski movie seg­ments and shoot­ing with Red Bull TV, Sean Pet­tit decid­ed that this would be the sea­son that his idea, Super Proof, would come to fruition. His mis­sion is one we’ve seen before: to reimag­ine the con­ven­tion­al ski film by adding a new twist. Super Proof’s secret ingre­di­ent is final­ly revealed in its first offi­cial video launch, “Learn to Fly”, fea­tur­ing none oth­er than Mr. Pet­tit himself.

Part “Wolf of Wall Street”, part clas­sic (albeit spec­tac­u­lar) ski shots, the Super Proof approach is def­i­nite­ly new. Does it work? Does it feel forced? It’ll be worth com­par­ing this first launch to the rest of the series, which will be dropped through­out the 2014 season.
