Leave it to European freeski filmmakers to come up with this unique approach to making a ski movie.
A new concept called Junkies On a Budget (or JOB, for short) gathered five separate film crews from around Europe and had them produce and edit their own segments. Austrian filmmaker Clemens Pruner and art director Jan Schöttler then set about mashing them all together into one unified film called "JOB in Space," for which the trailer dropped on Tuesday.
"After many years of making traditional ski movies, we decided that everything looks the same and feels the same, so we started to create a new concept," JOB's director Nico Zacek told ESPN.com. "We thought that we could get a better outcome if we were looking for people with creative ideas, be it really crazy tech (camera or after effects), good or funny storylines, or creative shooting. We realized that it's easier on filmmakers to make an incredible five-minute segment than it is to make a whole movie."
