Seeking Sherpas

Last year, the world was treated to seeing a jaw-dropping, POV shot of a 185ft drop by one Julian Carr over the notorious Air Jordan, courtesy of a group of plucky filmmakers.

Anyone in the ski world – hell, anyone in the outdoor sports world – knows of the multiple award winning crew known as Sherpas Cinema. Their last two outings, All.I.Can and Into the Mind, have raised the already high bar up into the stratosphere as far as sports films go. No longer just ski porn, the Sherpas team have injected the idea of a message into their work, and the result is a piece that has you thinking more about the bigger picture rather than the sick drops and death defying avalanches.

Would you sleep for weeks outside even if it wasn’t even necessary? These are all important questions.
