The Sheridan Arts Foundation and Bootdoctors presents Matchstick Productions’ latest ski film “Drop Everything” on Thursday, Dec. 21 with screenings at 6 and 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for each film for adults and $7 for kids 18 and under at the 6 p.m. screening only. The screenings are sponsored by BootDoctors, who are generously providing swag to be given away and raffled off.
The winter of 2017 provided the team at Matchstick Productions with a clean slate and an opportunity to get back to their roots. As illustrated by the new trailer for “Drop Everything”, that shift in thinking meant that everyone involved had the time of their lives making this new ski film.
“Drop Everything” is the brainchild of veteran director Scott Gaffney, the man behind “There’s Something About McConkey” and other Matchstick classics. “As a film company, it seems we’ve been working to impress viewers in so many different ways – moving stories, elaborate cinematography, and cutting-edge editing techniques. We’ve been after the ‘wow’ factor,” says Gaffney.
Audiences can expect unparalleled performances from many of the top skiers in the world. “Drop Everything” features Mark Abma, Markus Eder, Eric Hjorleifson, Michelle Parker, Sammy Carlson, Cody Townsend, Elyse Saugstad, Tanner Rainville, Chris Rubens, Aaron Blunck, Sander Hadley, Connery Lundin, and more. The next-level action was captured in world-class destinations including Meadow Lodge, British Columbia, Lake Tahoe, CA, Whistler BC, Crested Butte CO, Revelstoke BC, and Silverton, CO.
Always on the leading edge of camera technologies, Matchstick Productions filmed the entire movie in 6K ultra high-definition. According to Matchstick co-founders Steve Winter and Murray Wais, the difference will shatter viewers’ expectations. “Pricing of UHD TVs and other devices has come down while streaming bandwidth has simultaneously improved, meaning it’s easier than ever to access ultra HD content,” says Wais. Winter adds, “This will easily be the best-looking film we’ve ever released. Vivid colors, precise picture detail, and rich audio will make this a very memorable viewing experience.”
“Drop Everything” is presented by Under Armour with support from Avery Brewing Company, Freeskier Magazine, and a host of industry partners.
The new Opera House SHOW Bar opens at 5 p.m. and will be open throughout the entire evening. Bootdoctors will be raffling of tons of great swag at both screenings.
