Legs Of Steel are heading back up the mountains to film Bene Mayr, Paddy Graham (both pictured, above) and pals in action, and they’ve given us an exclusive first look…
If you hanker for the good old days when ski movies featured a banging rock soundtrack and the obligatory wipeout section, then you’ll love the latest offering from Legs Of Steel.
LOS have followed up their acclaimed debut offering The Pilot – a heavy rawk-driven freeskiing flick starring Bene Mayr, Tobi Reindl, Thomas Hlawitschka and Paddy Graham – with Nothing Else Matters, a project that looks likely to win the Austrian filmmakers even more fans when they release it exclusively online in Autumn 2011.
Over the past few years, LOS have left their unique mark on the international freeski scene, partly thanks to their skiing skills, but also because of the chemistry among the crew and the 'band of brothers' mentality that exists between them.
LOS was formed in 2009 after deciding it was time to work on a project unique to them and their ideas – which basically revolve around having as much fun as possible.
Slated to star in the project are the likes of Sven Kueenle charging lines, Fabio Studer killing it on the jumps and young guns Tobi and Lucas Mangold making their first appearance on the international stage.
As well as being hard at work on Nothing Else Matters, LOS’s Andre Nutini has also been filming behind the scenes for a series of five special webisodes, which will be shown exclusively on redbull.com. These sneaky peeks will bring us closer to the action and the crew, as well as showing candidly what it takes to get a ski film made.
The first instalment – which you can see below – takes in the back country of St Moritz, Switzerland, followed by a kicker session in the Swiss resort of Davos, before heading to France and the Red Bull Linecatcher event in Vars.
Future episodes will show what the crew get up to on and off the mountains, what it takes to score shots in a less than co-operative European winter, and what happened when the guys lucked out on a trip to British Columbia.
