This Autumn 2012 will see the release of the third instalment of the Britain’s Got Skiers film. Consisting of a series of short films highlighting British freeskiing, the movie is the culmination of a competition to find the best skiers and editors in the fast-growing British freeskiing scene and will be sponsored by British protection specialists Forcefield Body Armour.
From May onwards, edits will be entered in to the competition on the ‘Britain’s Got Skiers’ Facebook site, with the best edits being chosen at the end of August. This site will be available to view with all the entries as the competition progresses. Once the best edits have been selected, the movie will be produced for release at the London Ski Show. Entries included in the film will be announced weekly over the month of September and shown on the Ellis Brigham website. The overall winners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced at the premiere.
Prizes are available for best overall edit (£500 cash), best skier under 16 (GoPro camera pack) and a Judges Special Prize based on creativity (GoPro camera pack). In addition there will be prizes for best female, best slam, most entertaining clip and also monthly spot prizes.
The final film will be put together by Eddie ‘Slavemonkey’ Thelwell with skiing from dryslopes, indoor domes, European glaciers and parks, as well as backcountry freestyle and freeride sessions. Extras will include some of the UK’s top freestyle events, and trailers for other UK ski movies. It’s expected that over 2000 copies will be produced and distributed.
