Before the world premiere of The Art of FLIGHT at the San Sebastian Film Festival, we break the Travis Rice-starring snowboard smash-hit down to its numerical parts…

That’s the date in September that The Art Of FLIGHT 3D and Storm Surfers 3D will join forces to create the Big Friday event at the San Sebastian Film Festival. The ultimate sports-action double bill – now in glorious 3D – will be showing at the Antonio Elorza Velodrome as part of the festival’s 60th anniversary celebrations. Click here to more info.

 

3(D)...
Already released to great acclaim in its big-screen and IMAX incarnations in 2011, The Art Of FLIGHT has received the extra-dimension treatment from the good people at Venture 3D. A Los Angeles-based company that has done great work on Titanic 3D and many more blockbuster releases, the team is headed up by Todd Cogan, a former assistant to the great James Cameron – so we can be sure the transfer has been done to the highest possible standards.

 

14...
The 2011 screening tour took in 14 stops in some of Europe’s biggest cities and on even bigger screens. Munich, Vienna, Innsbruck, Milan, Zurich, Madrid, London, Oslo, Brussels, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Stockholm, Paris and Moscow were all on the tour – if you didn’t see the film then, where the hell were you?

Two years in the making, The Art Of FLIGHT started filming in deepest winter in January 2010.

2,683...
Hours of footage was shot between January 2010 and August 2011 – that’s nearly 112 days of rushes!

Such a huge amount of footage needs a massive amount of hard drive space. In this instance, 210 terabytes of storage were required to keep all the film files safe.

 

10,127...
If the tons of footage weren’t enough. More than 10,000 photos were snapped by on- set photographer Scott Serfas during filming.

 

22,660...
Snowboards weren’t the only mode of transport in the making of The Art Of FLIGHT. Snowmobiles were predominately used to get around the off-road locations – and they came in handy when carrying around 10 different types of camera and 65 cases at various points during filming. The snowmobile mileage at the end of filming topped twenty two thousand.
