Setting the scene(ry): The winners of the GORE-TEX Experience Tour at the “Nine Queens” freeski event
Instructed by experts from the European Outdoor Film School, the four winners of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour get to shoot a professional outdoor film. The movie will be shown during next year’s E.O.F.T
Impressive mountains, quaint little villages, a majestic panorama: Serfaus is picture-perfect – and perfect for the next project of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour. For four lucky winners, instructed by experts from the E.O.F.T (European Outdoor Film Tour), this magnificent scenery will serve as the set for their very own outdoor film. The theme of this film will be just as unique as its setting: During the legendary “Nine Queens” freeski event, the winners will accompany the German freeskier Caja Schöpf at first hand, capturing her spectacular rides on cam. Born and bred in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, she first took part in the freeride world cup in 2010/2011 and achieved an exceptional sixth rank in her half-pipe debut.
Outdoor enthusiasts: on your marks, get set – action!
The application process was run via the Facebook fanpage of the GORE-TEX Experience tour, where candidates were asked to state their personal motivation for applying and to present their latest film project. A vote among the Facebook community and an expert jury then decided on the winners. The four lucky participants are from different countries all over Europe, and yet they share the same passion for outdoor sports and film making. Paul from the Netherlands, student and production manager, has always been fascinated by the subliminal mountains. Dave from Great Britain, having turned his passion into profession, works as an editor for an online platform for outdoor sports. Ben from Germany, is into climbing and outdoor in general. The only female participant is Nora from Italy. She is enthusiastic and passionate about climbing as well as filming. They all hope that, by taking part in the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour, they will improve their filming skills and be able to share them with their friend.
This is where the action is
The “Nine Queens” freeski event will take place in Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis March 24th 2012.
