1992 - 1998
Promoted Ski and Snowboard films for 6 years in UT
Watched Turkey Film called “No Regrets” Online by Dustin Lutt and Kyle Nicolite. Not hunting turkeys, I hated watching any turkey films… until I saw the edit of this film. The cinematic style was unique an I appreciated the “less talking and more action with music” It told a story that I didn’t need a Host to recap. I shared this on Facebook, and watched it again. Powerful films can even influence haters. I was proof.
