I’ve uploaded the Heli-boarding out-takes from the 2006 Rookie Academy heliboarding trip…
They’ve gone on sale!!! yupiee! You can now buy early bird Mt Ruapehu lift passes at $399, for both sides of the mountain Whakapapa (which is new zealands largest developed ski field) and Turoa. Its interesting to see the price difference to europe nearly 4.5x more to get a 3 valleys season pass, but hey its a bigger skiable area
Off to snow planet tonight for some snowboarding. Its open 365 days a year. I asked them how many people came on christmas day and they said it was totally packed out! Bizzare!
Oh in tech news McAfee FAILED the 100% virus scan at VB. Virus Bulletin tests a load of virus scanners for “100% virus detection”. They failed to detect viruses running on Vista, ironically enough Microsofts’ OneCare also failed.
Many moons ago at the start of time my Bro and me created a film… the film was for a competition. The rules were to create a film which was 60seconds in length and to do with “Lost Identity”. So we took the challenge. We did learn a lot doing the shoot… I think the main one being its impossible to create a complex storyline and fit it into 60seconds. Oh and never work with animals, children or matches.
The first is the actual 60second film and I remember having about 3 hours of other footage which made the thing make sense but we strangly couldn’t fit it into 60secs. The second is a test reel we did to try out a couple of locations and how we were going to do things…
Well you have to start somewhere!
