Super unconventional: With its tenth film, Field Productions continues to turn skiing on its head

Super unconventional: With its tenth film, Field Productions continues to turn skiing on its head

Field Productions’ new ski and snowboard flick, Supervention 2, is right up there with the season’s biggest Hollywood flicks—in literal terms, at least. The film was advertised on the marquees of over 150 theaters in Norway, alongside the likes of blockbusters like Snowden and Deepwater Horizon. It’s not all that surprising when you consider Norwegians regard skiing like Americans do football, baseball or basketball. But, Field didn’t get to where it is today by simply following the trends.

Founded in 2002 by Filip Christensen, Field Productions has grown from a group of young skiers toting Mini DV camcorders around their local ski hill to a full-fledged studio operation that produces high-end commercials and second unit work for blockbuster feature films in addition to its world-renowned ski movies (10 so far to date) and ski-centric web series. The company markets itself as a video house that specializes in “daring, innovative and fearless” techniques and, gimmicky as it may sound, Field has more than backed up this claim over the course of the past two years, the time in which it produced Supervention 2.

Take for example Field’s unwavering efforts to build a massive jump in a spot where such an endeavor seemed downright insane—a project that took three years to come to fruition. Or, Field athlete Jesper Tjäder’s completion of the “loop rail;” spanning 14 months from Tjäder’s first attempt to his last, it was a project that seemed, forgive the pun, totally “unrailistic.” Or, Field athlete Anders Backe’s year-and-a-half long mission to jib a rail atop a 734-foot-long cruise ship in Oslo Harbor. It’s clear, from one shoot to the next, the production company captures out-of-the-box skiing at its finest.

But, don’t take our word for it, just check out the stories, below, and soak in some prime illustrations. And when you say to yourself, “Damn, that’s sick,” amplify the stoke by visiting supervention2.com and downloading the film in its entirety.
