Matchstick Productions announces two-year film project, “Days of my Youth”
Matchstick Productions, with Red Bull Media House, presents the announcement teaser for its 2014 film, Days of my Youth. The two-year project will be released in the fall of 2014 and, as stated in this morning’s press release, will “take a look into the lives of skiers everywhere, offering a peek into the journey of self-discovery that every skier experiences. The film will lay out the joys and struggles of shredding in the big mountain arena, and it will showcase the delight of childlike discovery that skiing can offer as more than just a form of recreation, but as a way of life.”
MSP has been making ski films for over 20 years, and are now taking a break from their annual film projects for the first time. “After 20 years of filmmaking, it’s been great to step away from the year-to-year model and work on something so different than what we have done in the past,” says executive producer Murray Wais. “Red Bull Media House has been instrumental in allowing us to fully develop the script, and to film this movie over three winters and two years. Having a six-month post schedule instead of six weeks makes all the difference.”
The film will feature Richard Permin, Mark Abma, James Heim, Michelle Parker, Cody Townsend, Markus Eder, Bobby Brown, and more. Be on the look out for the official trailer and web series this fall.
