Nike Chosen Sessions Final Film Crew Edits | News and Views

What do you get when you combine one of the most ridiculous snowparks we have ever seen (80m Nike swoosh anyone?), slushy spring conditions and three amateur film crews? Well, said amateur film crews spent a week riding and shooting in said park and in other locations around the Silvretta Montafon area in Austria as part of the Nike Chosen Sessions. Their goal was to produce an edit that, once voted on by the Nike pro team, could potentially bag them 40,000 Euros and a trip to Baldface in Canada.

All three amateur edits have now dropped and the winners announced. So without further ado and presented in order from third to first place, here are all three edits in one convenient location for your viewing pleasure:

 

Smallzinema (Finland)

Overall, the Finnish crew have conceived a feel-good edit with plenty of diversity and some on-point riding. Featuring backcountry lines, night builds and kicker shots, these guys really covered all of the bases. You can also catch a glimpse at next years Ride Buckwild and DH snowboards strapped to a couple of the riders, which we previewed out in ISPO back in February.

 

This Must Be The Place (USA)

This jib-heavy edit is the finished product from US crew This Must Be The Place. With a Midwest jib-flick feel to it using a jangly tune accompanied by lots of creative riding, fish eye, skinny stances and balaclavas, it kind of reminds us of a High Cascade summer camp video which is most definitely not a bad thing. The edit demonstrates some great riding but doesn’t really bring anything new to the table in the way of originality.

 

RockonSB (Germany)

German crew RockonSB, in our opinion, deservedly took the win for their edit. Like the vampire themed video that brought them to the Chosen sessions, the production values are top notch, the riding is sick and a dash of light-hearted humour always goes a long way. This one’s well worth a watch.

Were RockonSB the rightful winners of the 40,000 Euros? Let us know what you think!
