Light the Wick, TGR film

Teton Gravity Research, aka TGR to all ski and snowboard addicts, is attacking Los Angeles tonight.  Their latest visual and athlete awesomeness is called Light the Wick and it’s playing The Rave 18 Theatre in Los Angeles.  No, there will not be kids sucking on pacifiers wearing teddy-bear pants, but instead, well let’s let the truth-speaking mouthpiece of TGR give you the details:

Shot using film, HD and 3D technology, Light The Wick is about sparking the flame and watching the world’s best athletes blast off.

This winter the TGR crew of athletes and cinematographers captured the most jaw-dropping footage ever witnessed. The team traveled around the world to uncharted destinations, as well as some of their favorite stomping grounds. Follow the crew as they discover the previously unskied big mountain playground of Petersburg, AK, find the best snow Croatia has seen in fifty years, ski deep pillows in undiscovered Italy, hit full throttle riding in British Columbia, and experience epic free-riding at Ripley Creek and North Cascades Heli. Don’t miss Sammy Carlson and the Stevens Pass 3D experiment, the first ever 3D ski segment. The groundbreaking dual RED One slow motion arial shots will make you want to reach out and touch the action. Light The Wick showcases the most talented and well-rounded athletes in skiing together in one must-see film.

Address for the shindig is 6081 Center Drive, Los Angeles.  That’s just off the 405 parking lot, and just south of the 90 freeway.  Bar opens at 7:00, show at 8:00.  Every attendee gets a 2 for 1 lift ticket to Mammoth!  This will be a RealD showing!!
