Jour Blanc de NewReal Pictures
Short ski film by Newreal Pictures.
Summary of the 2015 – 2016 season in Leysin, Switzerland.
This year, as it seems to become the standard, we had a late start to winter with pretty warm temperatures which brought many gloomy & rainy days. All of a sudden it would snow a lot, but the heavenly light pow would never last for long. With no project in mind, the camera was brought out on various random occasions, often overcast days in low-light-white-daze conditions, to capture some underexposed shots of slashes through the trees, hucks off of what ever backcountry feature seemed worth the hike and casual runs trough the park. Some days, the sun did show itself nonetheless! In the end, there was enough footage to make a movie. All in all, a fun season spent on the mountain.
