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!



Ohh to spend a night in one of these cosy looking Whitepods

…and then to wake up and do a bit of this…

Sweet dreams.x

The BBC have written the following article…

Arthur’s Seat avalanche warning

So with such warnings a mass shred has been organised! Freeze have posted this event on their Facebook page,  SHRED-INBURGH, Arthurs Seat Flashmob Downhill this Sunday from 3pm. Brilliant!


Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010

I want to pay homage to the beautiful work of StudioAKA, who have produced the new BBC Sport – 2010 Winter Olympics Animation in Vancouver. If you haven’t seen it or noticed it, shame on you (or you just have a life and don’t watch TV or live abroad) Watch the ad below and enjoy.

Directed by Marc Craste and Designed by John Klassen

Here’s a reminder of how good the BBC advert for the 2008 Beijing Olympics was.

Good job Beeb!
