In 2003 Rob Norman finished his first full length Ski Video. It was shot mostly on Video 8, Mini DV and DVCAM in and around the Australian Alps and parts of North America. Its a bit rough around the edges by todays standards but brings back some great memories of good times and amazing people! Really reminds us of how lucky we are to do what we do for a living. Everyone involved in this video did it out of pure passion and most of them are still close friends and ripping up the slopes to this day.
P.s I believe there is not 1 single scenic cutaway which was the style of the time

Knack recently created this profile video on Australian freestyle skier Russ Henshaw for REDBULL – The guy shreds! Born in Sydney, Henshaw strapped on his first pair of skis when he was three. A dozen years later, encouraged by national under-12 slalom titles, his parents moved to Jindabyne, the golden gateway to the NSW snowfields. Now he spends most of the year with his passport in his pocket on a world dream snowfields tour; home maybe for 10 days for Christmas in the northern winter, anywhere from his beloved Perisher to New Zealand or even South America during the southern winter.
Jump aboard and travel alongside Chris Booth as he collides with big mountains and even bigger personalities from Mt Cook’s Aoraki region to The People’s Republic of Macedonia. Across the journey Boothy joins forces with a distinguished bunch of slope shredders and snow-sport pioneers whom together search for unique mountain experiences around the world.
