Snowboarder Travis Rice and director Curt Morgan nearly blew the doors off the Ellie Caulkins Opera House the last time they were in town, showing their 2008 film Thats It, Thats All to a sold-out crowd. Now Rice says that was a mere baby step on their way to truly learning to fly.
We learned so much making that project, but so much of it was just off-the-cuff running and gunning on the fly, doing what we could with what we had, Rice says. We took a year off in preparation for our next project and we went into it with much more focus.
You might also want to bring some earplugs. Its really an honor to be able to crank it up, blast our music, and know that were showing snowboard films in places more accustomed to hosting operas and stuff, Rice says. Were making these films knowing that well be bringing them to first-class venues and playing to huge sold-out crowds of core snowboarders, so were always going to be trying to bring a worthy show.
The screening is at 8 p.m. at the Ellie. Tickets, $15, and more information are available at www.artofflightmovie.com.
