The Wallisch Project
The Wallisch Project is awesome. Ski movies are commonly referred to as “ski porn” and The Wallisch Project takes it the next step and delivers all the money shots in a tightly edited, well-crafted, 9-minute segment of pure fantasy. Wham. Bam. Thank You, Ma’am. Over and over again. Except, it’s all real in the world of Tom Wallisch’s super-human urban-skiing moves. Up rail, big gap, down rail? Hell Yeah. Corked 1260, switch landing? OMFG! Remember when people used to say the hardest, technical thing in professional sports was to be able to hit a major league pitch in baseball? That was before the advent of extreme sports and well before what gets thrown down on a regular basis today in free-skiing. You are best advised to be wearing an adult diaper while watching The Wallisch Project – you may need it as Tom lays out a compendium of the toughest moves in pro sports today. The Wallisch Project deserves it’s place right up there with Nyjah Huston’s 2011 skate board mind-blower Rise & Shine in the category of best value for money spent on iTunes.
Roping in Level 1’s Kyle Decker to lens and edit The Wallisch Project is a stroke of genius. His flow puts you right there and his smart use of slow motion is like an exclamation point, making The Wallish Project all the more inspirational.
What a great way to start the 2013 ski movie season. It’s August but I want snow now. By Mark “The Attorney General” Quail
