Following the success of their award-winning film Nothing Else Matters the Legs of Steel crew are back with another full-length riot of freeskiing madness and derring-do.
Hurt So Good is the latest collaboration between freeskiing gang (and housemates) Legs of Steel and Canadian cinematographer Andre Nutini. The Canadian film-maker joined forces with Bene Mayr, Paddy Graham, Tobi Reindl and Thomas Hlawitschka back in 2009 and has been making breathtaking films with them ever since.
The first film they were involved in together, The Pilot, was a terrifying look at the world of off-piste skiing. But it was last year's follow up that really put this film-making team on the map. Nothing Else Matters, which recieved its online premiere on RedBull.com, had even hardened freeskiers soiling their keks at the sheer audacity of the tricks.
Made with the assistance of the Red Bull Media House, Hurt So Good promises more of the same, only we can expect the action to be even more intense. The housemates are joined by the usual array of freeskiing pals in tackling self-built obstacles up various mountains to a pumping hard-rock soundtrack. You'll get an idea for Nutini's style of film-making by reading this interview from 2011.
To whet your appetite, here's the official trailer for Hurt So Good.
And if you do still need convincing that Hurt So Good is going to be anything but brilliant, here's a clip from Nothing Else Matters, which, incidentally, won two gongs at the 12th annual Powder Awards last year. Their Best Manmade Air prize was for a clip in which 13 different skiers hit three seperate jumps at the same time while Nutini filmed from a helicopter.
Stay tuned for the online premiere of Hurt So Good on redbull.tv…
