“You either feel it or you don’t. With this statement starts the trailer for “ODA”, the third project from Skilluminati. In fact, SKLMNTI (Abbreviation) aren’t professional filmmakers. They are just regular guys, who ski just a couple times a year, but when they do it, they do it extremely passionate and wild. All technical things like camera work and editing they taught themselves.
“ODA” was filmed for three seasons. Movie engages with the local environment, Baltics architecture and their society. In past three years it changed Skilluminati vision on skiing in many different aspects. With “Oda” they want to engage with spectators more personal and show them what their lifestyle is really about.
Oda (from the ancient Greek word ᾠδή or ōdḗ) construction consists of 3 parts and this is their third movie, would it be Skilluminati last project they won’t address it. One thing is for sure – they want to leave legacy and strong imprint on their name in Baltic’s and worldwide.
