Nicky Keefer (skier), Jonah Williams (skier), and Jacob Callaghan (film maker) joined forces with Atomic Skis to make a film that captured a piece of the soul of skiing.
“There’s a quiet rythym of leaves as they make their descent…” the narration begins. The music seeps in as the opening credits disappear, and the characters welcome us into their world.
In this world, we find endless, bottomless blankets of powder. Perfectly sculpted jumps and sunsets deep in the backcountry.
The editing flows like a dream, and the harmony of the narration, music and images create a profound feeling of whimsical purpose.
This short film will connect with something deep within you, whether you are a full time skier, or have never seen snow in your life.
