If you haven't seen Jess Kimura's video 'The Uninvited' we highly encourage you to take a look. The all woman's snowboard video is packed with 10 very talented snowboarders on a journey to learn all the professional fundamentals of snowboarding yet having fun and filming full parts while doing so. So take a look at the trailer below and follow Jess Kimura for the full lenght video and more.
"I want to show girls that care about snowboarding what they're capable of. I'm not trying to make a pop album that everybody likes. This is an indie garage band release for the ones who are hungry for this kind of inspiration. Some will be stoked, and for the people that aren't, who cares? I want to get these girls sponsors and give them a chance to climb the ladder into pro snowboarding. The thing with all-girl projects is that they need to be there. Guys aren't going to put three girls in their movie. You've got to create opportunities for women to film. I filmed with Peep Show the year before I filmed for Think Thank, and that's what prepared me for Right Brain Left Brain.
What I did this past season with the girls was almost like a film school, their school on how to film a video part--learning how to build spots, usable versus throwaway shots, and just how to go about the process of the season, so if an opportunity to film for a bigger video comes around, which hopefully will, they'll be ready. They won't be making rookie mistakes. Crews aren't going to treat you special because you're a girl or give you extra time. There are limited budgets and resources for snowboard movies. In my experience, you have to use the resources to their maximum potential so that the results are multiplied… You have to be like Jesus with the fish and the loaves of bread--take what you're given and make it into more."
