The second trailer for the freeski film event of the year, JOB In Space, is now online. To celebrate, we’ve got some more sneaky behind-the-scenes peeks at this impressive endeavour…
To send ﬁve innovative ﬁlmmakers out to shoot impressive pictures of the best freeskiers is one thing. To keep control of the resulting creative chaos and combining them into an engaging ﬁlm is something completely different. The difﬁcult task of organization and art direction of the ﬁrst ﬁlm of the JOB project fell on the shoulders of The Distilleryʼs Jan Schötler in collaboration with young ﬁlmmaker Clemens Purner, an experienced designer and producer with a passion for mountains and snow.
Numerous top athletes and some of the most progressive ﬁlmmakers on the action sports scene took part in the extensive project. To transform all the pieces into a seamless and engaging ﬁlm, the seriously talented production crew worked tirelessly for more than a year on this unique project.
Jan Schötler and Clemens Purner together ﬁgured out how to combine the different concepts into a cohesive whole, and the result is a futuristic space saga about a stranded extraterrestrial astronaut who must complete an odyssey on the winter planet he has crash landed on.
Clemens and Jan not only put their organizational and artistic talents to work. Throughout the complex production they clocked countless kilometers on their BMW X1, traveling all around the Alps to stay up to date with all the various production teams.
The adventure of the astronaut and, naturally, all the epic ski action will be available for your viewing pleasure in the ﬁrst ﬁlm of the JOB Project at the start of Autumn.
