FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (September 13, 2010) – With the announcement of its 20th feature length movie, MSP Films is proud to present “The Way I See It.” The film’s Utah premiere is scheduled for October 9, 2010 in Salt Lake City, at The Rail Event Center. “The Way I See It” is a modern take on the extreme sports genre featuring state-of-the-art, high definition cinematography and unique POV angles. This film joins MSP’s award-winning catalog featuring films winning Powder Magazine’s prestigious “Movie of the Year” honors an unprecedented six times. With the winter of 2010 providing record snowfalls and a roster featuring the best skiers in the world, this film leaves audiences inspired and excited for the coming season.
“The Way I See It” was shot on location in Alaska, Japan, British Columbia, Colorado, Switzerland, and many other locations worldwide in high-definition and features the most dominant cast of athletes ever compiled, including Mark Abma, Sean Pettit, Eric Hjorleifson, Henrik Windstedt, Bobby Brown, Colby West, James Heim, Richard Permin, Cody Townsend (Utah), Rory Bushfield, Ingrid Backstrom, Gus Kenworthy, Jacob Wester, Russ Henshaw, and others.
MSP filmed Bobby Brown’s emergence as the single-most dominating park skier in the world, Sean Pettit’s follow-up performance to his 2009 “male skier of the year” and “full throttle” awards, the epic powder skiing of northern Japan, and one of the most incredible trips ever to Alaska’s Chugach Range. Each trip topped the last, including shooting two perfect days in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia with an HD Cineflex unit and culminating with a trip to Alyeska Resort and one of the largest park features ever built.
“I definitely had some all-time moments shooting for ‘The Way I See It,’” said executive producer Steve Winter. “One that really stood out for me was the night of May 9th – we filmed for two hours on a jump at Alyeska with Bobby Brown, Gus Kenworthy, Russ Henshaw, and Richard Permin. It was a throw-down session like I have never seen before; Bobby did a few triple-flip variations and everyone stomped a ton of amazing tricks. Shooting from 7-9 from the heli was a total blast and the images from that night were some of the most epic shooting I have ever done!”
