The last time we did JOSS was back in 2010, after that I decided that the event needed a break as all locations had been filmed on so much over the past few years. Coming into this year I wanted to bring it back but I did not manage to find enough funding for it, that is until yesterday when I had a very interesting call. So todays mission is to put together a budget for JOSS and see what it would cost to make this happen. Everything is far from set, but I am still excited as I would love to do this event again, for sure one of the most fun projects that I have been a part of.
If I would do it again I would most likely move on from the country based teams and where I invited skiers and they got to set up the teams. This time I would rather contact the biggest ski film companies and invite them and let them decide what skiers to bring, just to be able to put more focus on the filming and creativity of the sport, something that I think is great to push for on a year like this with Olymipics and stock runs having such a big focus!
Will keep you guys posted, but feel free to hit me up with any ideas that you would like to see at JOSS if we can bring it back this year! Lets prey that we can make this happen!
