Insight manifests in written, photographic, and cinematic form. What transcends it is influence. Each rider, crew, and location featured was chosen because of the profoundly positive affect they have on snowboarding—some in the past, some predictably in the future, and all in the present. Snowboard films are often born of homogeneity. It makes sense; any creative endeavor needs a theme to unite the work. Insight is a multifaceted project unified by diversity, and the title is quite literal: it is a look into the individuals, locations, and crews that comprise it. The aim is to delve into the lives of those involved, exposing the particular motivations each has to strap in—be it atop a stairset, powder field or couloir.
