A two-year journey following the world’s most aggressive snowboarders through the 2014 Olympics. Telling their stories and sacrifices.

SBXtheMovie is a documentary on snowboard cross and its athletes. It will give an in-depth look at the sport, the athletes and the sacrifices they make year in and out. I will spend the better part of the next two snowboard seasons following the fastest, most aggressive snowboarders around the world, up to and through the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Kickstarter Goal:
Currently, I am looking to raise $9,000 to pay for production costs and also cataloging of footage as we go. Two years worth of filming will just be too much to to catalogue all at the end.  It is necessary to store and cut as I go to ensure the highest quality product and appropriately portray these athletes.

Storyline & Inspiration: 

This past winter gave me a good look at snowboard cross and its athletes. I spent a few months traveling and filming with World Cup athlete, Jonathan Cheever. Even in something as seemingly benign as editing his POV footage from races, I was amazed at how crazy things appeared through the athlete's eyes.  These courses are insane to look at - let alone doing them as fast as possible with other racers inches from you.  

Along with the insanity of the courses and innate nature of the sport, I was also taken aback by how much work this one athlete put into this sport. Through Jonathan,I met a few more of his fellow competitors and quickly realized he wasn't some fluke, either... they all have this admirable work ethic and dedication.  But why the hell would they pour themselves into such a thing that offers:  nearly nothing in return, essentially guarantees at least a handful of some of the most detrimental injuries I've ever seen, costs tens of thousands of dollars each season, and all of this with the possibility of death at every practice and race?!  This is what I am setting out to discover and share with the world. 

In order to show this I will be diving deep into the sport, documenting the races and interviewing the most pivotal people in the industry.  My hope is to walk away with an understanding of just what this sport is, and most importantly, who are these people and why do they do what they do? The timing works out perfectly, as when better to gain an understanding of this sport than leading up to and going to the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia?
