This year I have been traveling a lot, mostly thanks to snowboard/ski related matters. We have been doomed in the past two winters and had to chase snow like we usually chase waves here on the “inland”. Search is always on, hehe.
Untouched project‘s main skier, Bine Žalohar, had a misfortunate injury in the start of our second filming season, so we were at a crossroad… should we make a snowboarding only video or push over our budget, put in some own and get stuff done in summer. Four heads looked at each other and smiled… it was on, we are going to Chile!
I always had a great wish to go to South America, but it is funny to drop there in summer and basically hit the middle of winter… Sanka moment on the airport, haha.
Discovering a big and totally new country, trying to get good powder shots and gain some travel experience was super stressful and amazing at the same time. We visited three ski regions, surfed, partied, hottubed, BBQed with locals… and drove and hiked more than ever in my life. Yet, we can say with out a doubt that we got lots of what we wanted and more… Chile is a nice place to be.
Thanks to the rest of the crew for putting such an effort in… Bine was sick pretty much the whole trip, but really came through with the sheer determination to get his share in the video (also cooked and drove most of the time), Maček was the proper balkan PR/manager like always and became some sort of an director/screenwriter in the mix of things and Katja got everything documented for the project (and resort tickets, hehe).
We posted regular updates on the Untouched blog, so check there for more pics and story… teasers will be dropping in November and the video premieres around Christmas, so check back…
