1242 Productions Releases Fifth Film
FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif., Oct. 1, 2008 - Oakley, Inc., in conjunction with 1242 Productions, announced today the upcoming release of "Uniquely," a 35-minute travel inspired women's action sports film shot exclusively in High-Definition (HD).
"'Uniquely' showcases the diverse personalities, lifestyles and athletic talents of the Oakley women's team," said Liesl Holtz, "Uniquely" Executive Producer. "The film exposes the joys and challenges of being a professional athlete while inspiring us all to create our own adventures."
"Uniquely" takes viewers on a cultural journey through Japan, Russia, Colorado, California, Indonesia, Australia and beyond. Explore the remote corners of the earth with the women of Oakley, as they search for perfect conditions while building lasting memories and lifelong friendships.
The film stars snowboarders Gretchen Bleiler, Marie-France Roy, Elena Hight, Anne-Flore Marxer, Chanelle Sladics and Etsuko Tominaga; skateboarders Lauren Perkins and Lyn-z Adams Hawkins; surfers Karina Petroni, Leilani Gryde, Layne Beachley and Claudia Goncalves; skiers Kristi Leskinen, Grete Eliassen and Angeli VanLaanen and wakeboarder Amber Wing.
"To me, 'Uniquely' is a reunion of passionate girls who want to share their passion for their sport," said Oakley snowboarder Marie-France Roy. "It's a mix of adventures and portraits that show how beautiful life can be when you find what you really love and you sacrifice everything for it."
The film was shot, directed and edited by John Roderick, who used HD and RED cameras to capture progressive action while creating a vivid picture of the world.
"Uniquely" will be distributed by Foam magazine in the United States, Cooler magazine in Europe, Yen magazine in Australia and Transworld Snowboarding magazine in Japan.
