The Ski Channel presents an original production about Will Bogner, a living legend whose work stretches from iconic fashion to the Olympic games, all the way to filming James Bond.  He goes into depth of his story of skiing in the Olympics while also launching his film career combining his love for skiing and filming. Willy skied with the German team in the Olympics and made a small video while skiing, which was unheard of at the time. He was one of the first skiers to ever ski at high speeds while carrying a camera, that’s when he caught the attention of the James Bond production crew. He has a very inspirational story and thanks to him skiing got its break through in cinematography and gained more exposure than it had ever had before. Meet Willy Bogner.
