Hey everyone! Its been crazy here at Premonition Films over the last couple months! I’ve filmed well over 3 Terabytes of footage, had a hard drive crash (so glad I had a backup), and had to reformat my laptop twice, so needless to say it’s been a bit hectic keeping everything in order and moving forward! After missing some pow days due to work in April, I had had to make this happen when we got this late snow. I managed to get a break from working three jobs, to make it up to the hill a couple times in Mayuary to get some fresh powder and I wanted to share my POV footage so I threw this together in a couple hours for your viewing pleasure! In fact one day I was so excited that I forgot to clean the inside of my lens oopps! Oh well hope you enjoy, cause after a May like this you just have to shake your head and hope for more sun next year! Looks like we are going to have a sunny last day so we will get ya one more video before I go to work for the summer!
Just got a link to this article that Annie Fast did on Transworld’s website about getting the last rides of the season and she linked our video for Timberline! Thanks Annie!
I’m sure you guys have heard me talking about this group at some point or another and for good reason! The Sandpeople have been hard at work for years progressing Hip-Hop towards a more positive message with lyrics that have great depth and content. I’m very picky when it comes to Hip-Hop you won’t hear much about cash, cars and chicks on my playlist! That is where the Sandpeople fit in, from their first album “Points of View” they captured something I was always looking for in hip-hop: reality. No I’m not talking about them rapping about how “real” they are (if you have to claim it all the time, it’s probably to cover for how unreal you really are) but how they manage to put daily life into their songs and create something I think a lot more people can relate to. The one thing I know for sure is they keep putting out great music year, after year and every time I play it for somebody they ask “who is this? It’s really good!” so I wanted to share this with my friends who haven’t got a chance to ride in my car or hang out at my house! They have three free albums you can download at www.sandpeoplemusic.com. With their main producer Sapient at the helm they’ve been getting even better! I recommend downloading all of the albums, but “Famine Friends” Sapient’s latest solo album is one of the best I’ve heard in a long time. After you are done playing those out make sure to grab The Prime’s “One Uppers” Sapient and Luckyiam from Living Legends combine to one up the industry!
