Without further ado, this is The Fourth Phase. For the first time since releasing in 2011 what’s widely considered to be one of the best action sports docu-film of all time, ‘The Art of Flight’ Travis Rice and some of the best talent in snowboarding will be returning to the big screen for our viewing pleasure. Rice's highly anticipated new project will premiere sometime in fall 2016, and it promises to raise the bar yet again for the genre.
This teaser is an exclusive taste of what we can expect from Rice and the Brain Farm crew next year. It will be the first snowboard movie filmed entirely with 4K cameras, and no expenses were spared en route to this compilation of what is sure to be some timeless ripping from a very stacked cast; Rice is joined by Mark Landvik, Mikkel Bang, Eric Jackson, Pat Moore and Bryan Iguchi and they're filmed in a fashion like you’ve never seen before.
The Red Bull sponsored project has been a multi-year production starting in 2013, and Rice has run a pretty tight ship over the course of the filming thus far. His social media accounts have become vague and useless tracking mechanisms for his travels, as he makes sure to digitally cover up his footprints after every step onto fresh powder. That means that every drop of information we get from Rice between now and the film premiere will be substantial, intentional and likely mind-blowing.
The film is under the directorial savvy of a two-man team, Curt Morgan and Jon “JK” Klaczkiewicz, both action sports heavyweights and visionaries within the snowboarding world.
