Paul Gemignani is a fellow Michigander from the U.P. who I met last year on the MMW Tour. We had the chance to get together in Colorado with friend and photographer Terry Ratzlaff to try and get some shots. It wasn’t the easiest of days but while looking through SBCM I found out that it paid off. There on page 61 was a method that I recognized and sure enough it was Paul. As far as I know the video never made it out anywhere so I created a short from that day to show to Adam at SBCM.
For a month I was on the road, traveling the Midwest with a revolving crew of shred heads from all over North America for the Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour. Bringing with us our passion for snowboarding to share with as many kids as possible, we made stops starting in Colorado continuing into the Midwest hitting Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan. All told, there where 8 stops with 2 days at each camp. Without fail, at every stop I was amazed by not only the talent, hunger and passion of all the kids who showed up, but also by the wonderful hospitality shown to us by families, friends and strangers alike.
For the tour I was the video guy, part of “Team Media” including myself and photographer Terry “The Rat” Ratzlaff. For every day of camp I would produce, film and edit a video short for the tour sponsor SoGnar. For those of you doing the math, that’s roughly 16 edits. Of course, none of it would have been possible without everybody who was involved the tour, a huge thanks to all of you!
The edits in this post are a few of my favorites, if you enjoy them be sure to check out the rest of them!
