Level 1 Productions' new flickRefresh
is a celebration of the Denver-based production company's decade of badass freeskiing filmmaking, a simultaneous look back and glimpse of the future.
Native New Yorker Josh Berman, Level 1's mastermind, started shooting his buddies skiing after he suffered an injury in the winter of 1999-2000, and he's going very strong 10 years later as one of the most innovative directors in the extreme ski movie business. Of course, it doesn't hurt that his buddies are some of the best freeskiers in the world.
Refresh, which premiered at the Bluebird in September, is playing at Woody's Wood Fired Pizza in Fort Collins this Friday and West Portal in Winter Park on Saturday, and at other locations through the winter. Check out Level 1's events page for details. And as its creators recommend, watch the killer trailer above in HD and fullscreen mode -- you won't regret it.
