On the Road with Solitaire

For the past year Sweetgrass Productions has been releasing webisodes that go behind the scenes in the creation of their ski/snowboard/adventure film Solitaire. These short online videos are nothing short of amazing. Like Solitaire, they were beautifully shot and edited. The narration is well written and well spoken, adding to the enormity of the expeditions the Sweetgrass crew set out to conquer. They show you just how difficult it would be to travel to an extremely remote location to summit and ski/snowboard menacing mountains. All the while bringing along enough camera equipment and film expertise to know how to turn it into cinematic beauty. These webisodes make you wish you were there but at the same time glad you weren't. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about adventure, but I'm not all about 4 days in a Bolivian dental office (see episode 6).

Sweetgrass just recently released episode nine of their twelve part series of webisodes. Check it out below. And if you want to see more, which we assume you will, check out the other 8 episodes (Episode 5 is a trailer for the movie) even further below.
