Posted By: The Ski Channel on December 22, 2011 11:30 am


In Part 4 of Powder & Rails we conclude our journey with Standard Films. The video opens with some of the crew reminciing about the old days when Kevin Jones landed the first ever frontside 1080 as well as their lamenting about the arduous nature of shooting action sports using 16mm film.

Twenty years later Standard is still here shooting footage in the hopes of capturing the essence of snowboarding. Dave Hatchett, Lonnie Kauk, Mathieu Crepel all lend their thoughts on the history of Standard and the type of filmmaking they are striving to perfect.

The video finishes out with the premiere of TB20 which debut to a crowd of loyal fans in the town of Red Rocks, Colorado — the place where it all began. Jeremy Jones closes with the ultimate question: “Will there be a TB30?”
