Movie Monday: Ralph Backstrom’s “GoPro Hero2: This is Valdez”


Ralph Backstrom had the pleasure of spending 2 months in Valdez, Alaska last winter filming with Teton Gravity Research for their film The Dream Factory. Snowboarding steep and deep pow was the main focus of the trip, and helicopters, snowmobiles, and hiking were the means used to shred as much powder as possible. Shooting guns, snowmobile glacier travel, hiking spines, and winter camping seemed to take up the rest of the time. This was shot exclusively on the GoPro Hero 2.
