What's the story behind your project, and why "Fat & Furious"?
It all started two years ago, when we borrowed our mothers camera. We knew that we wanted to make our own project, so that we could make everything exactly as we wanted it to be.So we started doing park videos. The first two parts wasn’t that planned at all, or specially dedicated. Then we made part 3 from Kläppen Snowpark, which we thought got a little bit better than the earlier parts. Then we suddenly realized that we could do everything so much more interesting, only if were ready to put down some more energy on it.
The name "Fat & Furious", is just some random name we came up with while watching a Fast & Furious movie on the TV, some years ago. We thought it sound fun, so we decided to rock it.
Why park edits?
The year before we started "Fat & Furious", we made a full movie with some friends and filmed a lot of street, which was fun. But we realized how much work and time you have to put down on the street filming. And we wanted to ride more and get things happen faster. So we decided to start a web series from the parks, as a side project since we used to compete a bit more back then.
Basically we wanted to ride more snowboard than we got able to do while filming much street. Thats why we decided to make park edits instead. But you'll never know, maybe we'll throw an F&F episode from the streets of Sweden upcoming season…
So you will go for another season of F&F?
That's the plan. We have decided to keep this concept for the upcoming season. We still got some funny ideas we want to make reality, to keep Fat & Furious alive at least one more season!
