Even though it was waiting over two months on Vimeo to be discovered we only just realised the mellowparks team in China produced this nice teaser. It’s from the same guys that have been behind the Red Bull Nanshan Open, and this does not look too bad, either. Here’s the official PR chit-chat. Mind you, the letters stand for the People’s Republic…
With the “Niu” year behind us, we’ve now entered the Year of the Tiger – ‘Hu’ in Chinese. This year’s movie ‘Hu Am I?’ showcases the best of Chinese snowboarding, as our favourite pastime grows momentum in the Middle Kingdom.
The third full-length snowboard movie from Mellowparks.cn, ‘Hu Am I?’ features shred sessions with well-known riders Wang Longsheng (Andrew), Steve Zdarsky, Marco Huang, Wang Lei, He Wei (Xiao Hu), Sun YiMing (Mingming), Zhang Wei, Xiao Guo, Li Jie (Jay) & Liu Li as well as all our friends that stopped by along the way!
Shot primarily at our home base in the Quiksilver Nanshan Mellow Park, we also travel to Wanlong Ski Resort for some freeriding and hit up the Nike 6.0 Summer Lab over the off-season for some indoor shredding.
A big thanks goes out to Quiksilver, Nitro, Dakine, Nike 6.0, Nanshan Ski Resort, Wanlong Ski Resort, Capita, Union, Raiden, Nixon, Kagen, CityWeekend and Speed Snowboard for all their support – without them this project would not be possible.
The full-length ‘Hu Am I?’ movie will be released FREE for download October 2010. See you then!
And as a bonus (because it looks farking rad) we throw in the same press release in what looks to me like Chinese:
在中国农历的”牛”年过后，我们迎来的是新的一年’虎’年。今年最新的单板片子’Hu Am I?’记录了过去的一年中国单板最精彩的瞬间 和最难忘的记忆。
‘Hu Am I?’是Mellowparks.cn出品的第三部单板片子，几乎囊括了中国最好的业余单板滑手的倾情演出王龙升(Andrew), 史总, 黄雪峰（Marco）, 王磊, 何伟(小虎), 孙仪鸣(鸣鸣), 张伟, 小果, 李捷(Jay) 和唐喆（琉璃），当然还有很多其他的朋友们！
整部片子的主要拍摄地点 当然包括我们的老窝Quiksilver 南山麦罗公园，当然还有在中国滑野雪必需要去的雪场万龙，最后也不能少了我们夏日的训练场地Nike 6.0实验室了。
非常感谢Quiksilver, Nitro, Dakine, Nike 6.0南山滑雪场, 万龙滑雪场, Capita, Union, Raiden, Nixon, Kagen, CityWeekend和极速滑雪的鼎力支持，没有他们的支持就不能有这部片子的完成！
完整版的’Hu Am I?’片子将于2010年十月正式上线免费下载，我们到时候见吧！
