In 2013, skiers took a note from skateboarders and BMX riders and started creating their own solo film parts, often leaving more established ski movie production companies in the process. The projects ran from Tom Wallisch's "The Wallisch Project" to Henrik Harlaut and Phil Casabon's B&E Show, to Sean Pettit's new production company, Super Proof Inc., to Parker White and Chris Logan's new webisode series, "The Big Picture." "It's the future," Tanner Hall said. "This is an opportunity for athletes to film everything and put it into their own hands."
