Another Fabian passion seems to be filming: you’re highly productive and that’s the second season of your and Rado own project: Spot Hunt. What’s the project is all about exactly
Yeah, I love filming, especially in the streets, it’s like an addiction to get a good shot. So many unexpected things can come up on a street spot from start to finish. It can be a serious challenge to figure out how to approach a certain feature. Sometimes the in run even takes longer to build up than the actual feature itself.
I founded Spot hunt together with my friend and filmer Rado Kapralcik. We produce multiple Episodes throughout the season packed with creative spots and cinematic filming.
the first episode of this season just dropped make sure to check it out if you haven’t seen it yet.
Why webisodes (which are harder to realize because you need to ride a lot in order to bring always something fresh and hi quality each time) instead of the classic full part?
I feel like with all this Instagram posts and stories nowadays, people get so overwhelmed with content that its impossible to keep track of everything going on in the snowboard world. Webisodes have the potential to brand that name into peoples minds so they can recall what they saw and maybe even have something to look out for.
Like who wants to wait a whole year for the next videopart of a particular snowboarder comes out.
Do you think full length snowboard movie still make sense nowadays?
If you have already a big name in snowboarding and get a lot of budget to film this one year project, that a tone of people already look out for, then I think it makes a lot of sence to do a full movie for sure!. But for me and other snowboarders on the come up it makes more sense to constantly put out content rather than saving up everything for that one movie. Yeah u may get some fame and glory for the first few days after release, but in long term you are better off with multiple shorter episode throughout the season. It it a lot more work? – YES. But I feel like people can relate more to that, also because the shots happened recently and are not from a season ago. You know what I mean?
in the end you can still make a full length movie out of the webisode shots anyways. Of course nobody gonna pay for that, but who is willing to pay for a snowboardmovie in 2019 anyways?
What about those shiny red boots?
They”re the “Bloodline“ ID Team Boot from Deeluxe which quickly became my favorite boot to ride in. They’re perfect for tweaking out grabs and getting low on rails, but at the same time gives me enough stability for onefoot landings. Btw. It also looks sick AF.
