My good friend Caroline Gleich (whom you would possibly acknowledge from the quilt of my e book, “Stretching For Cyclists“) is knowledgeable skier… and this yr she was featured within the new Warren Miller ski movie, “Like There’s No Tomorrow”.
Caroline bought me into the Park Metropolis screening of the movie only a couple months in the past and about half-way by means of the film I began considering to myself, “I ought to make a film like this… however with bicycles!”
What I noticed whereas watching “Like There’s No Tomorrow” is that the movie consisted of 10 completely different segments – every section happening in a special location someplace all over the world.
For instance, the ten segments included in “Like There’s No Tomorrow” are: India, Squaw Valley, Tuckerman Ravine, Portillo, Norway, British Columbia, New Zealand, the Rahlves Banzai Tour, Utah and Alaska.
Every section of the movie was roughly 6-12 minutes in size… and with 10 of those segments edited collectively, you had the makings of a feature-length movie.
With this mannequin I noticed I may do one thing very related with a movie about biking. I noticed that I may journey to varied elements of the world and shoot quick 6-12 minutes segments in every space that may later be edited collectively right into a feature-length movie that may actually span the globe.
You possibly can’t actually get a really feel for the ten completely different movie segments inside “Like There’s No Tomorrow” by watching the trailer above, however the factor you’ll be able to pull from watching this quick 4-minute video is that the movie as a complete truly conjures up you (because the viewer) to get off your butt and go snowboarding.
That’s the foremost factor I need to create with this movie about biking all over the world. I would like the film to not solely be academic and fantastically shot and edited, however I would like the movie to really encourage folks to get off their butts and go for a motorbike trip – whether or not that be a motorbike trip across the block or a bicycle tour across the phrase.
So there you have got it! Inspiration generally strikes within the strangest of locations… and on this case, inspiration got here from a movie about snowboarding.
