http://mpora.com/videos/hchMoODZG The Oakley Jib-Vid comp is coming back around once again to tickle our snowy visual taste buds (gotta love a mixed metaphor) with a selection of entertaining short films from Mayerhofen’s Penken Park on the 17th,18th and 19th of March. For those who don’t know the score the Jib-Vid consists of 18 teams who have 28 hours to put together the bangin’est, entertainin’est riding film possible. There are a number of challenges or criteria that each film has to meet but otherwise the team’s riding and creativity is the order of the day. In the past we have seen Gestapo-esque ‘Style Police of Death’, Monochromatic mix-ups, remote control riders and even one team that even sacked off the glories of the Penken Park to fly back to the UK and have a late night Sno-Zone session and then fly back just in time for the deadline. All the films are shown at a viewing where they are judged by the teams and a panel with the top five taking home their share of a 10,000 prize pot and a few individual prizes such as best trick and best editing.
This year there were over 40 teams applying to take part in the comp and the guys down at Jib-Vid HQ had a tough time sifting through the entries to whittle it down to the final 18 teams. The final cut includes teams from all corners of the European snowsports scene including teams from Lib-Tech Sweden, Animal UK, Go Pro/Forum and a host of un-affiliated teams but with no less prestigious members such as Marc Swoboda, Gian Luca Cavigelli and James Woods (UK free skier). For the full list of teams, riders and all you other Jib-Vid curiosity head the site here.
Below is a teaser of what went down last year when the Isenseven crew took home the top spot with their awesome movie “Technical Difficulties” which is below the trailer.
