Water The Plants might be the least amateur amateur ski movie that you watch this year. The skiing, the spots, the filming and the editing—just about every aspect of this project screams not just “up-and-coming,” but rather “just about there.” So it’s small wonder that this crew picked up not only Amateur Film of the Year at iF3, but also Amateur Skier of the Year for Jacob Belanger’s well-rounded closing segment.

From YouTube: Featuring skiing from Jacob Belanger, Kyle Coxworth, Luca Natale, Cat Agnew, Will Fossum, and Shondra Charbonneau. Supported by Vancouver Island Brewing and RMU. Dedicated to Jack Spettigue, Owen Hawkins, Hugo Labelle, and to all of our loved ones. To the ones back home, the ones here, the ones no longer with us, the ones we see every day, the ones we don’t. Thanks for making life great.
