The Trashparty‘s long-awaited film is finally here. And by finally we mean after 9 years, which is definitely a unique approach in the ski industry. We are not afraid to say that The Trashparty has been ahead of it’s time with spot selection, skiing, and the overall vibe. “:)” features Hallvard Hovland, Sig Tveit, Magnus Støre, Magnus Nørsteng, Chris Helberg, Maria Hilde, Iver Håkonsen, Thomas Reinkjøp, Jonas Fjelstad, Magnus Barbo, Rafael Garrido, Maximilliam Smith, Eirik Moberg and more.
From YouTube: After the 2014 cult classic ‘Video Entertainment’, The Trashparty created hype in the alternative ski scene by teasing the prequel ‘:)’ to release the year after. However, the film remained elusive, giving rise to online rumors and speculation regarding its unreleased status. Now, nearly a decade overdue, the overly hyped movie with the cryptic title finally premiers. The smiley movie is a collection of footage captured through Norwegian woods, streets, and mountains, mixing video from the 2014/2015 season with shots captured sporadically since. With its characteristic low-fi production and trivial approach, ‘:)’ is a nostalgic throwback as much as a valid contribution to the contemporary ski scene – and arguably the lowest effort nine-year project in action sport history.
