JOB-In-Space-1 To Infinity And Beyond With JOB In Space (© Clemens Wirth | JOB 2012)

JOB In Space isn't just any freeski film, a lot of love, passion and technical know-how went into making the first in this ongoing series. And we've got the pictures to prove it...  

"Action sports movies from a completely new angle." That's how The Distillery, the production house behind the first Junkies On a Budget film JOB In Space, describe their brand-new approach to freeski movies.

"The purpose is to root out Europe‘s five most talented filmmakers and give them a once in a lifetime opportunity to make their wildest visions come alive, they say. "Our job is to implement these five visionary ideas into a next-level movie experience complete with a compelling plot, innovative filming and editing techniques… And banger action shots!"

Those 'banger action shots' come to fruition after a lot of hard work. Not least finding the perfect filming spot high atop a mountain.

Rarely for a film series of this type, a sense of narrative and plot is thrown into the action-sports mix. This means that you get some story in amongst all the killer moves.

Innovation is the name of the game when it comes to setting up the shots. From strapping a camerman to a pulley system (above) to investing in specialist next-gen equipment (below), nothing is beyond the realm of possibility with Junkies On a Budget.

All the hard work setting up the shot is paid off when incredible shots like this are achieved.

Not only is JOB a technical and sporting achievement, but it's strategically impressive too as the filmmakers had to figure out how to get skis, cameras and other film-making equipment to unreachable places.
