About the Movie
In the winter of 2012/2013, Teton Gravity Research unveiled The Co-Lab, an open-source film competition. With a $100,000 cash prize on the line — the largest in free skiing history — the contest attracted both established professionals and unknown athletes from across the globe. Abandoning the conventions of traditional filmmaking, The Co-Lab handed the reins over to the people. With the platform and freedom to express its creativity, a new generation of athletes and filmmakers stepped into the spotlight. You chose your favorites. This is their film...
It is cool to see this movie. It is much different than a lot of the other videos out there, in that it is like an open source film. I saw some of the stuff during voting, but to see the top edits together is pretty wild. It makes me realize how good these guys are. I have always been a fan of TGR films and never missed one. While this film is different in that other people made the segments of the film, I just realized that this is a TGR film. They came up with a crazy idea to encourage people to create high quality videos in hopes of winning the $100k prize. The result is a cutting edge movies created in an interesting way.
