Blank Collective - 7 Stage of Blank Film Premiere

Posted on September 17, 2019 at 11:02 PM, B.C. – Following the success of their previous productions, Blank Collective Films is proud to release the trailer for their fifth feature-length film, The 7 Stages of Blank, presented by Salomon.

Last year, in the award-winning Before Blank, Stan Rey, Alexi Godbout and company offered a look at how their obsession began. This season, The 7 Stages of Blank will provide an explanation into their insanity.

Anticipation. Inspiration. Creativity. Perseverance. Experience. Exploration. Satisfaction. These 7 Stages are designed to postulate a progression of the emotional stages during a ski season.

7 Chapters
1. Anticipation: is something every skier can relate to; the first snowfall, hiking to the top of a line, watching a storm roll in.
2. Inspiration: delves into the past, present & future and how each generation has inspired the next.
3. Creativity: presents skiing as a form of expression, and how WB shapes the growth of the sport
4. Exploration: exploring the boundaries of skiing, both the where and the how.
5. Experience: reflects on the feeling of skiing; a reflection on the time spent together outside.
6. Commitment: focuses on the adversity a season might bring; family, injury, time, comfort, relationships
7. Satisfaction: is a fancy word for saying that skiing is about having fun with your friends.

Check out the TRAILER

Watch as Rey, Godbout, Josh Daiek, Mike Douglas, Sam Kuch, Tony Lamiche, Mark Abma, Vinnie Gagnier, Evan McEachran, Barclay Desjardins, Jordy Kidner, Nico Vugnier, Jules Mandin, Andrea Byrne, Phil Langevin and the Whistler Freeride Club bring you on a journey through the 7 Stages of Blank, while taking a lighthearted look into the bond that develops around the sport of skiing.

From neck-deep pow at the Journeyman Lodge in Callaghan Country outside of Whistler, B.C., Mount Baker Ski Area, Washington and Lake Tahoe, California, to spine-tingling ascents and descents in Chamonix, France and Valais, Switzerland, to creativity gone wild in the terrain parks of Whistler Blackcomb, and an all-out assault on the awe-inspiring peaks that surround Whistler, Pemberton and Bralorne, B.C., The 7 Stages of Blank, which will premiere in Whistler on Saturday, September 28th at the Maury Young Arts Centre and later be released online for free through Salomon TV, will serve as one of the must-see ski movie events of the year.
