Sports films have seen a renaissance in cinematography, from the AMAZING “The Art of Flight” by Brain Farm, to the series of shorts on Vimeo “A Skier’s Journey”. These athletes show and amazing skill in not only being awesome in their fields of snowboarding or skiing, but in creative camera work and expression of emotion through film. So imagine my delight when a behind the scenes featurette of the award winning skiing film “Into The Mind” is posted online for free. It has an ethereal quality to it, and I always love it when film makers share their secrets about how they do their craft. But this film is special in that they have worked a lot of symbolism and subtext into their finished film, which they all too kindly explain in detail here for us.
