2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

I just saw the BBC’s advert for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi = trailer for a really cheesy Twilight take of Game of thrones! When looking for images for this post I came across these very peculiar images of Clare Balding, Hazel Irvine and Jonathan Edwards. They most certainly have had a dose of the Twilight vampire effect. I don’t really understand why they felt they had to overly process the stills of the presenters. I’m not totally hating on the ad but for me it doesn’t beat the efforts of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

The Art of Flight

Oaft! This is going to be amazing…

Boarders Travis Rice, John Jackson,  Scotty Lago and Mark Landvik, among others, travelled to Alaska, Aspen,Chile, Patagonia, Jackson Hole, British Columbia and more to create The Art of Flight. This film looks like more than your average boarding movie, it’s in a whole new league of its own and I can’t wait until it’s release in September! Goose pimples!
