Hyped!

We were able to sit down with the busy man behing our upcoming Nitro snowboard movie "Hyped!" and ask him a few questions about the movie. Here we go:
 
 
What is the idea behind Hyped!?
The idea for Hyped! is that the film shall convey the feeling of ultimate excitement. We are trying to focus more on how fun snowboarding actually is, not how hard it is. People can expect seeing their favorite Nitro riders riding stuff that the viewer hopefully can relate to more. Instead of only showing the best tricks on the perfect locations (we will show that as well), we are trying to show how the Nitro riders are snowboarding when all pressure is off. The goal is to capture that feeling you get when you are riding with your best friends, on a perfect day, and you never wanna stop riding.
 
What was your favorite moment filming for Hyped!?
I think it was our whole trip to China. The conditions were not the best, but we had such a blast. It was me, Austin Smith, Bryan Fox, Knut, Nils Arvidsson, Anton Bilare, Bob Plumb (Nitro photographer) and Mark Welsh (also Nitro photographer) to name a few. We were just filming on a really shitty half pipe á la 1992 and having so much fun. Between runs legends like Ingemar Backman, Scotty Wittlake and Michi Albin were dropping in and hitting the same thing. It felt like we were in a time machine.
 
What was your camera set-up?
Panasonic HPX-170, Canon 7D, Nizo Professional Super 8, Casio Highspeed, GoPro Hero2, iPhone 4s.
 
What is something that you always have on you when traveling?
Too many bags, too many cables, earplugs, headphones, a book, too many cameras and a coffee cup in my hand.
 
What are your intentions with Hyped!?
Our intentions for Hyped! are to try and make a slightly different snowboard movie and try to see snowboarding with fresh eyes. My goal is to try and see past all unwritten "rules" that filmmakers go by, and then see what happens. 
 
During which trip did the weirdest stuff happen?
I have to say China again, it is such a weird and interesting country. Highlights included weird food, the Chinese Mafia and a drunk Austin (not a good combo), man made resorts, interesting animal transports, man-dancing at weird clubs and too much rice wine (crazy stuff happens).
 
Who are the people behind the Hyped! movie, filmers, etc...?
Pirmin Juffinger and myself have been filming most of the stuff, but also Clemens Prankl. A lot of the riders have been filming as well, Knut Eliassen have probably filmed a ton of stuff. Knut and Andi Aurhammer have also helped to produce the film.
 
What other movies have you made before this?
Pony Tale by Actionhorse Films, a beautiful film about the love for horses. I also worked on Escramble and some other stuff.
 
What made you want to get back into making snowboard movies?
I once wanted to be a p
