Edits, webisodes, videoblogs, webisediveogs…These days the online ski industry is all about moving pictures. Riders are taking it upon themselves to keep the fire stoked with new original content. The introduction of helmet and body cams has had a definite impact on the present and future of ski porn, with no end in site. Power to the people!
Nipwitz is one of those projects that has spawned via this new revolution. To them the ski film industry had become stagnant and predictable and they saw a need for change. The Nipwitz project started last year with four short movies. From the About section of the Nipwitz site “We did not like the way ski movie industry followed the same pattern year after year making the films predictable and uninteresting. Therefore our goal was to make some good movies that we would enjoy watching them ourselves.” The movies were a hit and the Nipwitz project was awarded the 2010 Best Webisode award at the International Freeskiing Film Festival in Annecy, France. “Nipwitz is a group of passionate skiers changing the way you think about skiing.” I think that’s a statement that rings clear when you watch their work. Enjoy!
