I was browsing around Vimeo this morning – as I usually do to kick off my weeks – and found this gem by Sweetgrass Productions. It’s called “On The Road With Solitaire.” So far we’re only into part III of the series, so it wasn’t too hard to catch up.
“On The Road with Solitaire” is a 12-part webisode series following Sweetgrass Productions in the making of their new 2-year project, the South American backcountry ski and snowboarding film “Solitaire.” New episodes will be released on the 21st of every month.
Episode I introduces Solitaire and some of the landscapes the crew encountered in their first season of filming in the snowbound badlands of the Southern Hemisphere.
In the high desert of South America, winter takes hold, devouring bleached bones and abandoned shacks. Into these most inhospitable of lands, a handful of drifters emerge from the whiteout, ready to cast their lot on forsaken peaks both merciless and magnificent.
Solitaire fuses western-inspired tales of backcountry gambles into landscapes never before visited on film.
Check out all the episodes on the Sweetgrass Productions Vimeo Channel. Here’s episode I to get you going.
