kOnneX: the ski film

The time has come! Our new experimental ski film kOnneX by filmmaker extraordinaire Hanno Mackowitz with original ?sound design by Marcus Loeber is now online, free of charge! Take five minutes ?timeout and immerse yourself in powder snow. 

Ski films present perfect sequences, everything looks so easy and elegant; the line, the conditions and the skier’s skills, everything is in perfect harmony. That’s why it is easy to forget how large and difficult a task it is to make all the elements come together perfectly.

The real attraction to the sport comes from the relationship between the rider, his or her skills, and the environment, which when combined, make for exceptional experiences in often cold and hostile surroundings. kOnneX is the continuation of last winter’s experimental film Lorraine. The Movie. Unlike other ski films, this film’s focus is on the perfect interaction between the individual elements of snow, ski and skier, and the resulting fluidity when these elements are connected. The film doesn’t require dialogue; the long-lasting impression is forged in the sound effects and music, which have been composed specifically for this film.

Make sure you plug in some good quality speakers or earphones to get the full experience. 

 

Filmfest St. Anton

„Berge – Menschen – Abenteuer“ so lautet der Untertitel des Filmfest St. Anton, das nach zwei erfolgreichen “Außenterminen” in Wien und Kufstein in der letzten Augustwoche (28.8 – 31.8.13) bereits zum 19. Mal wieder in St. Anton am Arlberg, im stimmungsvollen Arlberg-well.com, stattfindet. Vermittelt von Filmen begeben wir uns wieder auf die Suche nach Naturerfahrungen, Abenteuern und Herausforderungen. Das Festival präsentiert sich dieses Jahr ganz europäisch – Szenegäste aus Italien, der Schweiz, Frankreich, England, Polen, Deutschland und Österreich werden erwartet.

Ich bin dieses Jahr erstmals beim Filmfest St. Anton als Moderatorin dabei, und darf unseren Film “Lorraine. Freeriden am Arlberg zu G-Dur” gefilmt von Hanno Mackowitz präsentieren.

Einen Schwerpunkt der Veranstaltung bildet das Thema Frauenklettern: Ines Papert, Barbara Zangerl und Nina Caprez sind vor Ort und führen mit ihren Filmen vor Augen, dass schwere Kletterrouten keine reine Männerdomäne mehr sind.

Film clip about my training

Our new film clip about my training for the upcoming competition season is online! It was filmed and edited by Hanno Mackowitz, with whom I worked with for the first time during the Warren Miller shoot at the Arlberg in 2009. He did an awesome job. We filmed in my home mountains in Lech/Zürs am Arlberg. Let me know what you think and give me your feedback; if you like it they’ll be more to come 🙂

Warren Miller Film Shoot @ Lech Zürs am Arlberg

Last year I was lucky enough to film a segment for Warren Miller’s “Dynasty” in the Lyngen Alps, the very north of Norway. So when Kästle told me I was to film with Warren Miller again this season, what’s more in my home town, I felt like the luckiest person on earth.

For once, snow and weather conditions totally cooperated, the film shoot from 7th to 17th March was a huge success with cold powder and one sunny day after another. My Kästle buddies Karine Falck-Pedersen and Hugo Harrisson were with me, and I found myself guiding the crew including camera director extraordinaire Tom Day and camera assistant Hanno Mackowitz to my favourite spots around Lech Zürs.

The segment will touch on the long history of skiing at the Arlberg, as well as my own family history in Lech, which goes back 400 years. One of the oldest families in Lech, the Huber family resided in the “Huberhus” for 200 years, one of the oldest buildings in Lech and currently a museum.

And here's a taste of what's to come in next year's Warren Miller movie!
