Thinlines

This has to be the last snowkite film of the season right? Will Taggart and the crew from Jackson Hole have put out this awesome edit that showcases what the last two months of the season was like for them, amazing powder days, ridiculous hangtime and lots of back country exploring…

“We dedicated this film to our good friend Marty Lowe. He is a Rocky Mountain snowkite and wind chasing legend. I was deeply inspired when I first met him and was so impressed with his knowledge of the area and his explorations. He was always a strong supporter of the Jackson Hole Kiters and always encouraged us to keep filming and exploring. Marty passed away just as we were finishing this video and the entire kite community in the western USA will miss him deeply.

Thinlines is a cinematic snowkite short documenting the last 2 months of the 2014 season. This video was shot at a number of places in the Jackson, Wy area including 3 Waters Mountain in the Wind Rivers, the Absaroka’s, the Buffalo Plateau, Togwotee, and a little Bondo. Many of these shots are documenting the first snowkite sessions ever in these locations.

We’re taking our filming and snowkiting to new places each time. We are excited to say that aside from the shot of lines in the intro there wasn’t a single tripod, glidecam, or slider used in this video. GoPro mounts on kites, skis, RC plane, and helmets. The DSLR was all filmed by hand. We are taking stabilization a step further with zen focus practice and proper editing. This may be one of the most cutting edge aspects of this film along with the snowkiting itself. This filming and editing technique will undoubtedly move to other expedition oriented sports since you can give a cinematic feel to a video with nothing but the camera and your hands in the backcountry.”
