The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents Teton Gravity Research’s “Way of Life”
Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013, 6 & 8 p.m., tickets $15
Sheridan Opera House, Telluride, Colo.
The Sheridan Arts Foundation presents Teton Gravity Research’s “Way of Life” on Thursday, November 7, 2013. There will be two screenings at 6 and 8 p.m. and tickets are $15. The screenings are sponsored by Gravity Works and Osprey Packs who are generously providing swag to be given away and raffled off.
“Way of Life” is the first film shot with the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera platform in the world, the GSS C520.
This fall, follow the TGR team as they set out on a mission to find snow’s most hallowed ground and experience a brotherhood that has no language and knows no boundaries. Shot during the winter of 2013, “Way of Life” takes you on a journey to the mountains with today’s top athletes.
With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Digital Cinema and Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska from TGR’s Fantasy Camp and the U.S. Freeskiing Team’s quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons as well as the backcountry of British Columbia.
The film stars Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Sammy Carlson, Dash Longe, US Freeskiing Team and many more and was shot on location in Jackson Hole Wyo., Akaska, Austria, British Columbia, and Mammoth Mountain in California.
“Way of Life was created to tap into the global community that embraces this way of life we’re so passionate about,” says Steve Jones, TGR co-founder. “TGR has over 15 years of aerial cinematography experience, and this film, which marks the cinematic debut of the GSS system, contains the most stunning footage we’ve ever shot.”
“We really put the GSS system to use at TGR’s Fantasy Camp, which is the most cutting-edge heli outpost concept ever devised,” adds Todd Jones, TGR co-founder. “The camp gave us a home base from which to pick off first descents in Alaska’s remote Neacola Mountains, allowing TGR to continue our tradition of exploring the unknown.”
Founded in 1996 by Steve and Todd Jones, TGR works with the top athletes in their respective disciplines to capture, celebrate, and bring to life the passion and enthusiasm associated with action sports. Known for its media and lifestyle products, TGR has significant production experience on all seven continents including commercial work, branded entertainment, original television programming, and 30 award-winning feature films. TGR is a proud member of 1% For The Planet, BICEP, Surfrider Foundation, and Protect Our Winters.
