Happy winters SLR Lounge readers! Our staff always strive to find inspiration across all genre of photography and cinematography, as well as other activities in life. Since we are now in the thick of winter and since many of us are avid skiers and snowboarders, we thought it that it would be a great idea to feature the behind-the-scenes look of one of the most viral winter sports films from 2012, the “JP Auclair Street Skiing” from the feature length film All.I.Can by Sherpas Cinema.

The behind-the-scenes video explains how pro skier JP Auclair and filmmaker Dave Mosso tackled the challenge of fleshing out a relatively simple concept of skiing in an urban environment and the ways that they can film the various parts of the shoot. From the creative composition to shooting the scenes with the EPIC camera to the tight editing, there are a lot of great ideas that can inspire both still photographers and cinematographers alike.
