The Nike Snowboarding Project continues with Justin Hostynek of Absinthe Films taking the helm. Chapter 3 takes us deep into the backcountry with riders Danny Kass, Nicolas Muller and Gigi Ruf. The crew is kicking it old school and capturing all the action on Super 8 film.

The world of video has changed a lot since the old days of shooting on film, but there’s still something special about capturing a moment on physical medium.

Super 8 cameras manage to capture a completely different vibe than digital. The resulting footage is incredibly unique and picturesque. One could watch this video and begin to seriously question when snowboards were invented.
