Awesomesauce | Unleash Your Inner Skier with ‘Unicorn Sashimi’

I’ve been living in Maryland for well over a year now, and as Fall slowly begins to creep it’s way onto the horizon, I find myself daydreaming about winter sports. Topics of skiing, snowboarding, and frolicking dangerously in the snow are conversations I used to have on the regular while living in Denver, Colorado, but here I find those conversation far and few.

Nine years of my life were spent in Colorado: 5 years in Colorado Springs and 4 years in Denver. The misconception people tend to have about Colorado is that it always snows, but in Denver it’s not that often. It’s actually quite sunny and breezy most of the time, with random weather changes that you can predict. One day it might snow, the next day it melts. But if you’re looking for snow and want to unleash your inner skier, then you need to head to the mountains.

Sadly, I have yet to ski or snowboard, but if I ever go back to Denver I will make it my mission to truly take advantage of the mountains. And watching the short film Unicorn Sashimi really gives me the motivation I need to get lost in a winterland of awesomeness.

Unicorn Sashimi is a short film by Felt Soul Media & Yuki Miyazaki of Sweetgrass Productions.  According to the video description, the initial goal was to “hunt the mythical Hokkaido Unicorn. The creature proved difficult to capture on film, so we just decided to do a little skiing.”

Well, they may not have found the Unicorn, but they sure did capture some amazing footage that gives me snow envy. Geeze, I just really want to look badass in some outerwear and take a shot at skiing (more likely snowboarding.) Hmmm, sounds like I need to take some snowboarding lessons this winter. But for now, I’ll just keep watching awesome videos on Infinity List. 

Unicorn Sashimi was shot in Japan in January 2012 using a RED Epic Camera & Canon EF Lense, so I highly recommend you leave the HD switch on; watching this video in anything less than HD would be a crime. :P

Infinity List | POC Excursion & Rider of the Year

You may recall last week I wrote two posts that were geared towards extreme sports enthusiasts, as well as film lovers who enjoy excellent cinematography. One of the post was Infinity List | Are You Ready to Experience Freedom? The other post was this amazing slow motion video about freerunning/parkour and the title of that post was Tru Freedom | The Beauty of Slow Mo Freerunning.

Each post featured a different extreme sport, but both of the videos came from Infinity List, an amazing website that features the best in the cinematic sports experience. Since I’ve written those two posts, I have been checking out Infinity List every single day. The amount of videos they have on the site is insane! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, another video is submitted that is pure awesomesauce.

So the latest dosage of awesomesauce comes from two videos that profile two different extreme sports. POC Bike Excursion is a film about BMX riders Danny MacAskill, Martin Söderström and Daniel Dhers as they defy possibilities & BMX in some unique locations throughout Sweden. I’ve seen some amazing BMX tricks before, but the beauty of the surroundings and the creativity are what make POC Bike Excursion an innovative video.

The other video, Rider of the Year Preview II is about whitewater kayaking. Now, when I say kayaking I don’t just mean riding down a river with violent water. The type of whitewater kayaking I’m talking about is uber extreme, I mean kayaking off waterfalls extreme. Yes, waterfalls. Super dangerous, but amazing to watch! But in order to be in the running for the Rider of the Yearaward, you have to do some pretty amazing stunts to impress the judges.

Now there is no way I’d ever attempt either of those sports, but I thoroughly enjoy watching the videos. Both videos have some stunning cinematic footage and a great soundtrack. Maybe your not a fan of extreme sports, but if you love great cinematography & editing, then be sure to watch both of the videos below. They are pretty radical!

Music:
Era – Ameno
Flight Facilities – Crave You (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)

Music:

02 Awolnation – Sail

Infinity List | Are You Ready to Experience Freedom?

I’ve always had this ambition to become an adrenaline junkie (probably because I lived in Colorado eight years surrounded by nature.) Now, I know that adrenaline seeking isn’t something you embark on overnight, but I’m sure I could easily become hooked after partaking in one adrenaline filled activity. Skydiving? Eh, not for me. Base jumping? Yeah, I’d give that a try. But at the end of the day, maybe it’s something I should leave up to the world’s professionals (I cherish my life, so no danger for me at the moment.)

There are folks out there in this world who live & breathe (almost nearing death occasionally) dangerous adrenaline pumping happenings. You can easily do a Google search of some of the world’s best when it comes to adrenaline junkies, but if you want to see some mind-blowing cinematography, then Infinity List is a prime destination for out-of-this world footage.

Yesterday I posted an amazing video called Tru Freedom (Slow Mo Freerunning) and it can also be viewed over at Infinity List’s website. You seriously should head over to their site to get lost for hours watching some of the most amazing footage you might ever see in your life. The slogan for the site is “the cinematic sports experience” and each video is truly an experience.

A lot of the videos seem to have this beautiful theme of “freedom” and the latest video Experience Freedom is yet another mind-blowing cinematic experience that showcases some of the world’s best skydivers, base jumpers, and wingsuit athletes. The video is truly an epic experience, and the cinematography is exceptional; you feel as though you are actually there. The vibe is so inviting, and the stunts are so insane. Honestly, I got an adrenaline rush just from watching the video!

The video is so amazing epic! After watching the video I decided to spend hours on Infinity List and I realized it’s hands down one of the best websites I’ve ever visited! If you’re looking for action, adventure, and adrenaline rushes in eight adventure sport categories, then InfinityList.com is where it’s all at.

So grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and be prepared to enjoy a spectacular journey!
