AWARD WINNING JOB IN SPACE IS NOW AVAILABLE ON iTunes!
Innsbruck 22.10.12 – Good news for all freeski fans: One of the best freeski movies of the season is now available to the general public. GORE-TEX® JOB In Space presented by Marker Völkl, the movie that won the “Best European Movie” award and the “Coup de Coeur” at the iF3 Annecy and Montreal respectively, can be downloaded from iTunes from today on. It’s a viewing experience that is not to be missed! Of the five creative and inspiring segments, particularly watch out for the final one by German director Daniel Seideneder that got voted “Best Segment” by audiences and judges during the first five stops of the JOB movie tour.
The International Freeski Film Festival (iF3) in Innsbruck was another highlight for the Junkies On a Budget project. Taking the honor of being the final screening of the event, GORE-TEX® JOB In Space presented by Marker Völkl once again excited the audience to ecstatic cheers. After the screening all votes for “Best Segment” were tallied and newcomer to the freeski scene, Daniel Seideneder, took out the top spot. The hugely successful premier tour throughout Europe brought the concept of JOB to the masses, and movie goers from Montreal to Stockholm agreed; this concept has a bright future. All most all the screenings were packed to the rafters; in Stockholm and Innsbruck freeski fiends even filled the aisles. At each screening the audience got to vote for their favorite segment in the movie, along with four specialists from the freeski and cinematography scene. Innsbruck saw the culmination of this incredibly democratic system, where all the votes from every screening were tallied.
Although it was a close outcome, the winner at the end of the day was the team of Daniel Seideneder, who impressed judges and the audience alike with miniature time-lapse effects of the Nine Knights castle, ultra slow motion footage, sleek editing and great sound. The segment can only be described as beautiful and captures the vibe of the Nine Knights perfectly, quite astonishing considering that Daniel and his team had never filmed or edited freeski footage before. For this achievement the team won a BMW X1 for the season; quite an apt reward, and one can only hope that they use it to cruise around the Alps this winter to capture some more freeski video.
Having someone from outside of the freeski Industry win the award for “Best Segment”, while surprising, still quintessential sums up the Junkies On a Budget ethos; it’s about breaking boundaries and finding new ways to approach established ventures. For those who haven’t seen the movie yet, you have to see it to fully understand it. Check it out at one of the remaining dates of the JOB premier tour – dates can be found on the JOB facebook page – or see it on the internet. With the online release there is an exclusive 24-hour online premiere on redbull.com and following this the movie will be available in HD on iTunes. Don’t miss it!
