Music and philosophy of Grateful Dead inspire incredible short film
The folks from Teton Gravity Research, makers of some of the finest adventure sports films on the planet, have made their incredible film Fire on the Mountain available for all to see via YouTube.
"Improvisation is the silver thread that weaves this crew together. Just as the Grateful Dead did not ﬁt their music into an established category, this short ﬁlm ﬁnds a cast of some of the world’s best athletes on a spontaneous journey of skiing, snowboarding, surfing, and music, complete with a soundtrack comprised of only Grateful Dead music,"
The film is narrated by basketball legend Bill Walton and features a whos-who of action sports legends including snowboarding’s Jeremy Jones, Danny Davis, Kimmy Fasani, surfing icon Rob Machado, and skiers Michelle Parker and Chris Benchetler.
The film was captured over the course of the winter by cinematographer Tyler Hamlet with the help of Sweetgrass Productions.
It's an incredible experience. Enjoy.
