Red Bull is set to take flight on another project with Travis Rice and director Curt Morgan. The film is a follow-up to the best selling snowboard documentary, The Art of Flight, made in September, 2011 and will be produced by the same crew, Red Bull Media House and Brian Farm Digital Media.
“The multiple-year project will build upon the success of these earlier films, employing higher levels of cinematography, the use of cutting edge technology, rich storytelling, and exploring even more remote and untouched locations than ever before.” The film will be shot entirely on 60 pound 4K ultra high-definition cameras. Curt Morgan has been in pre-production for two years planning every step of the way with Red Bull and Rice, trying to provide a “state-of-the-art” experience for viewers from every mountain top. They will be traveling to new mountain peaks and untouched terrain never witnessed before. Curt Morgan says “between scouting new locations, developing our storyline, and working on the creative aspects, I feel the time invested will be the differentiating factor in this production.”
Currently shooting on location, the team gears up for the long year ahead filled with countless hours of production. Travis Rice says:
“This film is an incredibly ambitious project. After pushing the limits in The Art of Flight we knew that it would be tough to take it to the next level without seriously getting out there. I can’t reveal where we’re going yet, but I can say we are headed into the unknown, and it’s an entirely new approach to following winter for me. Our team is going all in on this one.”
Check out what Curt Morgan and Travis Rice have to say about Day 1 of production for their new film.
