About the Movie
Olympic bronze medalist and ten-time X Games medalist Mark McMorris wants the world to know there’s more to snowboarding than tricks & trophies. Traveling the world & riding with the sport’s best, he explores snowboard culture as he seeks to push his progression beyond the competitive realm and into the endless frontiers of the backcountry.
Another insiders look from a different persons perspective
Met Mark at a NY Burton store last week, he’s really an awesome and chill guy. I wasn’t able to say anything I wanted to talk to him about (like snowboarding tip, snowboarding gear, upcoming events, how he’s one of my top snowboarders, etc) because I got insanely shy meeting him, he’s the first professional snowboarder that I’ve met in person. The film was great, it’s nice to see another snowboarders inside view on the snowboarding life. I have to admit, I was really happy to see Danny Davis being apart of this, he honestly seem like such a down to earth, goofy, go to fun guy. The cinematography was absolutely beautiful, snowboarding seems like such an art form especially when they’re out in the mountains where it’s just them, the mountain and the snow. Whoever edited the film did a great job, transitions from clip to clip were very smooth, not choppy. Congrats on the film Mark and everyone who contributed to the film! Good luck on the upcoming events, kill it man! :) Hopefully I’ll be able to meet you again and hopefully next time I won’t be too shy to have a conversation with you.
So happy to see mark get out of the competition phase a bit! There's a wide range of riders and the price isn't outlandish for how well the film was produced.
Okay, but not what I expected..
This film had some great riding and benefitted from some backcountry greats such as Nicolas Müller making appearances. However, as presented by Red Bull’s advertising, In Motion neither “explores snowboard culture” nor does Mark travel "into the endless frontiers of the backcountry." I’d say far more than half of the movie is park riding and Mark doesn’t have the charisma to be the face of a snowboard movie. Three and a half stars for the production quality and lots and lots of spinning. Park riding is fun, but watching people go over the same groomed park jumps over and over gets old.
