Finally, I got to see this...

Art of Flight

Probably the most artistic gorgeous film I’ve witnessed. If you watch the ‘Making of’ it becomes obvious why. The makers of the film invested in some of the best Cineflex camera’s available and used every method available to make the footage just awe inspiring. The technique’s (slow-mo, ultra slow-mo, helicopters, RC copters, cranes, attached camera’s, etc are mixed and balanced throughout.

I believe filming snow landscapes has its shares of challenges, but these guys captured it perfectly.

This is more an art film than a documentary. Pretty much just capturing amazing moments. Its artistic filming where they are capturing these athletes performing on a backdrop of earthly snow canvases, few humans get to see.

The snowboarders: These guys are true athletes and I now know what No Fear means. Jaw dropping stunts down the side of mountains.

I’m sure some people are confused by the title of flight, especially if they are not familiar with snowboarding, but flight is demonstrated in so many ways here. The hang times these guys get are just tremendous.

For a snow boarder, this is a wet dream of a film. I loved it despite I will never do it or want to do it. It was just amazing to watch. It did feel a little long towards the end, but that’s a very small nit. Most of the music fits nicely with the editing. There was one song just annoying.

Very little talking except for some comments and a voice over. The movie is all in the visuals.
