The folks at LX.TV put together an interesting preview/interview about the new PJ Productions (now called The Documentary Group) feature length film about ski alpinism. Looks good. Interesting how they focus on base jumping (can’t blame ’em, after all, they’re journalists.) See if you can guess which voiceover is mine (hint, it’s short and involves making ski turns, not base jumping.) The clip is in the form of an interview with Kayce Jennings (widow of Peter Jennings) and Tom Yellin, the producers of Steep, and includes shots from the movie. Steep is premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 28.
Sadly, as of 2015 we can’t find a functional link for the preview/interview. If anyone knows anything, please leave a comment.
