TGR's "Light the Wick": Best Cinematography According to ESPN

by Brandon Quinn | October 15, 2010

TGR’s newest film “Light the Wick” took home ESPN’s award for best cinematography in a 2010 snow film. “It’s the best TGR film I’ve seen in years,” Powder magazine editor Derek Taylor says. Here’s what an editor at ESPN had to say about the film:

Imagine Sammy Carlson, John Spriggs and Byron Wells throwing 1260s and switch double misties over your head in a movie theater and you’d have a glimpse of TGR’s 3D experiment, shot at Washington’s Stevens Pass. “Light the Wick” is the first ski movie to incorporate 3D technology, which was done with two RED cameras shot from a helicopter. The 3D was definitely what everyone left talking about. It was definitely next level for ski films. I’m really excited to see where they go with it.” The truth is, though, TGR would win this award even without the 3D: The film is meticulously shot from beginning to end.

Check out the tour dates here. The trailer is below. TGR’s film from last year “Re:Session” is still available for sale.
