Meathead Films Unveils Wild Stallions Ski Movie
TRUCKEE, CA - Award winning Meathead Films has released the DVD for their latest ski film project, Wild Stallions, presented by Subaru of New England. A public movie premiere in conjunction with High Fives Non-Profit Foundation will be held at 50/50 Brewing Company (fiftyfiftybrewing.com) on Thursday November 19 at 9:00pm. Admission is a $5 donation to the High Fives Athlete Endowment Fund, with all ages welcomed.
The screening will also include free giveaways, a raffle with hundreds of dollars worth of prizes, and an actions sports movie that will excite people for the upcoming ski season. Merchandise from Meathead Films sponsors as well as prizes from UVM, Trew Clothing, Orage Clothingand Unofficialsquaw.com will be up for grabs. The night will also feature a vast gathering of Lake Tahoe-based UVM alumni to enjoy the first ever CA premiere by Meathead Films. DJ Silver Boom-Box Thief will provide music following the movie.
Wild Stallions was filmed exclusively in the Eastern U.S. and Canada while following the region's most talented freeskiing athletes to spectacular terrain throughout various resorts, urban areas, and rare backcountry locations including cat skiing in the Chic Choc Mountains. What the East lacks in vertical drop, Meathead Films makes up for in unveiling tight tree skiing, deep powder, unique jump sites, creative urban terrain, and of course, die hard locals.
Filmed in High Definition, 16mm, and Super 8mm film formats, Wild Stallions is truly a unique mix of visual mediums. Last year's offering from Meathead Films, Head For the Hills, won the category for "Best Jib" at Powder Magazine's Video Awards. This event is considered to be the Academy Awards of the ski film world and Wild Stallions is sure to stir up similar excitement in the industry.
Boasting one of the largest movie tours in the game, Wild Stallions will premiere at over 60 stops and returned as a feature presentation at the 3rd annual International Freeskiing Film Festival (IF3) in Montreal on September 18. A complete list of tour stop locations and dates are available on MeatheadFilms.com.
The DVD will be distributed in the U.S., Canada, Japan, and the U.K. by VAS Entertainment, the world's largest action sports distributor. Content from Wild Stallions will be broadcasted to millions on RSN, an ESPN affiliate, as well as The Ski Channel, an on-demand network carried by Comcast and Time Warner.
