Making Films, Photos & Life DIFFERENT not just BETTER with World’s Best Snowboarder Travis Rice + Brain Farm Cinema [LIVE Today]

Travis Rice on chase jarvis live by

UPDATE: the LIVE broadcast is TODAY. Check out the post below and be sure to tune into — 11am SEA time (2pm NYC -19:00 London) — and enjoy the show. See you on air in a few…

You’ve heard me say it before – don’t sink all your effort into being incrementally better. Instead be DIFFERENT. Be BOLD.

This upcoming episode of chasejarvisLIVE is focused specifically on this simple idea. And my special guests for this episode epitomize this ‘different’ and ‘bold’ mantra as well as anyone I know. Like all of my guests, these guys aren’t ensconced in the “this is how it is” photo industry – they’re innovators from a parallel universe…. (and they are giving away some insanely cool stuff to promote the show – scroll to the bottom).

Yes, Travis Rice is the best snowboarder in the world. But what makes him the subject of this #cjLIVE is not really his skill. It’s that he is an innovator, a risk taker, a visionary the star of the most progressive action sports film ever made (The Art of Flight). He’s a bold and creative leader in his crowded and noisy industry.

Analogously, Chad Jackson hails from Brain Farm Digital Cinema. He and his partner Curt Morgan are the makers of the most innovative, high caliber and DIFFERENT action sports films in the world (eg. The Art of Flight). By using unique techniques and special cameras (like the phantom), leveraging relationships and their special vision, they have broken away from the old action sports film paradigm to set a new bar, a different bar. Tune in.

    Nobody could ever claim to be the “worlds best snowboarder”… and nobody who knows anything about snowboarding would call somebody that. Travis might be the best freerider right now, but he would be easiely stomped by some guys 1 decade younger in street, halfpipe, big air and slopestyle. And in my personal opinion Black Winter, That’s It That’s All, They Came From and some other movies were just as good as TAOF.

    Looks like it’s at the one time that I won’t be able to tune in this month.

    You going to ask how much of the Patagonia segment was creative storytelling, and how much was from screwing up logistics?

    I was down in Puerto Williams 2010-11 working on a boat, so I know how hard it can be to get things done with the Carabineros and Armada, but unless they were incredibly limited on time they should have been able to cache fuel for the hell either with the heli or by boat and make it possible for more flight time then they did.

    I have the art of flight limited edition board and the photo journal to go along with the video and it’s facking sick!!!.

    I have a few pilot friends & we just watched the ART of Flight again the other day and one of them said they heard one of the pilots in the movie – got fired for Travis jumping off the basket/letting him ride on it. Some great pilot’s in that film!

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is only placing the other person’s website link
    on your page at proper place and other person will also do similar for you.

    Look closely and you might see a ding in the paint, or a
    spot where water has gotten under the polyester and made
    a bubble. It is also the expertly trained crew on a fishing charters that know
    how to find the perfect spots and how to treat the guests on the boat that
    makes it well worth finding the right luxury yacht charter.
    The cost may seem higher than regular villa stay or a hotel but the stay is
    worth it.
