Looks like we have more Michigan riders in this forum. Workman and Johnnymac. They need to start posting in here. It would be sweet if all of us could get a trip together at Crystal next season. That place is so much fun when you have a group. More eyes for spotting things to do and motivation!

By the way, you guys need to like this page!

Don Thomas Sport Haus

It's Don Thomas in Birmingham and they post shop only deals there all the time. Spread the word!

Man, companies want to know how to reach out to customers and when I toss out an idea they just stomp on it.

Modern Skate & Surf in Lansing in particular.

I've been in contact with a local theater (Celebration Cinema) about showing Art of Flight and they've been open with communication and are looking into it...

So I mention it on MSS's facebook in response to their post asking which snowboard vids we wanna see. I suggest maybe they team up with Celebration to host a viewing or something and MSS replies with "why would a theater want to do that?"

*sigh*

I was embarrassed by that response because sadly I linked MSS to my email with Celebration, so now they will see that.

Am I missing something here? Is Art of Flight theater worthy? The cinematography looks amazing. They have theater openings listed on the website..

Take it with a grain of salt. Social media managers are usually low on the food chain. Trust me, I know lol. I would try to contact someone higher up.

We've collabed with theaters before to show ski/snowboard movies. The only reason I can think of that MSS would say that on FB is because the dude is talking out of his ass.

Yeah, he/she back tracked a little when my response was along the lines of 'duh'

"Because it's Lansing, MI. Snowboarding isn't a HUGE deal here like it is in California, Colorado, Utah, Oregon... But if it works, that'd be sweet. Let us know if we can do anything to help. Maybe we could get Red Bull and MSU Snowboard Club to help put on an event. But doing it at NCG (in East Lansing) would make more sense if you wanted to do that."

They hit a pet peeve of mine by dogging Lansing but I dropped it because they had a point in that there's no hill here. They're on your side of the state and up north but dogs man, we have two shops here selling boards, clearly someone is buying them.

Regardless, I've got the program coordinator to contact with the AoF film team to see if they can bring it to Lansing in October/November. She seemed genuinely interested. Could have been just good P.R. and nothing serious. We'll see, I guess.

Maybe I'll contact Summit. lol

so what other films are people looking forward to? I think my list goes something like this:

1. AoF
2. TB20
3. Defenders of Awesome
4. The Shred Remains

There are still a bunch of films that I didn't watch from last year...

40-60 minutes depending on crew. I think Deeper was 60 minutes give or take. Now/Here was closer to 40. TITA was about an hour, etc.

That doesn't count the extras, a lot of the bigger-production ones like AoF or Deeper will come with bonus material, probably another hour give or take.

That surprises me, kind of... I was thinking about grabbing an NS last year, and I remember talking to them around July and they said they had ordered their stuff way back in March. Hell, they will be stocking shelves with Burton stuff in September probably.
