Holy Shit. What a privilege it is to experience this video. Watch it on a large screen if you are able.
Here’s the thing. I almost felt guilty watching this for…free. What kind of expense, (and risk) went into filming this masterpiece?
A skiing buddy just sent me the link to this video, today. You know how you get a bunch of stuff…overload these days, of all kinds of links to videos, jokes, petitions, etc.
Some I look at. Some I delete. I looked at Speed Riding Mont Blanc just now. And I sure am glad that I did.
My jaw dropped open the entire ten minutes.
I am here to share this, and equally as important, thank the filmmaker, the athletes, and those that provided the wonderful music.
It kind of sucks that you are not compensated for all of us watching what I am sure took you much time and heart.
I mean, how cool is it that we can sit on our couches, and quasi-experience this adventure without freezing, spending a dime, or shitting our pants? Mind boggling.
Merci, merci, merci. I want to send you money just for watching! What a blast.
Thank you Vision Films, Didier Lafond, the camera crew, and the athletes! (And David for sending the video.)
Any time you want some music for your next brilliant project, I would be honored.
Personally, I think it is a shame that many people take art for granted. Artists, musicians, and filmmakers, struggle to make their art, while others just take it, without consideration of what blood, sweat, tears, time and money go into our passion.
HUGE RESPECT TO YOU DIDIER LAFOND. I am the fond of you. Can I at least buy you a fondue? (Yes, stupeeed American humor.)
