Brain Farm

BRAIN FARM DIGITAL CINEMA is an independent, boutique production house focusing on the creation of action/adventure sport motion pictures, commercials and television programming of the finest quality. Headed by director/cinematographer, Curt Morgan, and working closely with professional snowboarder Travis Rice, Brain Farm continually pushes the caliber of its entertainment, raising the bar for the action/adventure sports world to follow.

Brain Farm prides itself on beautiful, vibrant hi-def cinematography and progressive new techniques to capture the action while inspiring viewers. The company works with the best talent, brands and production specialists in the business. Quality and creativity captured on state-of-the-art equipment comes first in every project.

Morgan

Curt Morgan has quickly become the most sought after director/cinematographers in the active and action sports world. With Brain Farm Digital Cinema, Morgan's now branched out beyond sports into nature, documentary, commercial and feature film shooting.

As President and Owner of the boutique production studio, Brain Farm Digital Cinema, Morgan's latest projects have shaken the action sports world and captured the attention of filmmakers everywhere. The 2008 Morgan directed film, "That's It, That's All." has been proclaimed the best snowboard movie of all-time with a look that rivals Discovery's acclaimed Planet Earth series. Morgan and pro-snowboarder Travis Rice made it their mission to change the face of snowboard movies and set a new standard for quality in the action sports industry. ESPN called their 2008 project "the most visually stunning action sports movie ever!"

Rice

Travis Rice is often hailed by sportswriters and peers as the best all-around snowboarder in the world. Since earning 'Rookie of the Year' kudos in 2002, Travis has won numerous global slopestyle, big air and backcountry events, including two X Games gold medals. The Jackson, WY local has unveiled a slew of new tricks, including the first double backside rodeo 1080 in competition, while establishing new benchmarks in big-mountain audacity.

The 2005 and 2009 TransWorld and Snowboarder 'Rider of the Year' innovated a fresh contest format with his Quiksilver Natural Selection invitational. Rice recently launched Asymbol Gallery to give artists and photographers in the surf, skate and snow culture a platform to reach a wider audience. With "The Art of FLIGHT," Travis says they will "pull out all the stops with cutting-edge cinematography, a banger soundtrack, and an edit second to none." Possessing a personality as huge as his talent, "TRice" is always the rider to watch.

Müller

Nicolas Müller brings his tweaked out, spontaneous and completely unique style of riding to "The Art of FLIGHT." Müller's instantly recognizable on the screen and always fun to watch in his decade worth of standout video parts. He honed his chops near his home at Laax, Switzerland's first halfpipe. Müller soon looked beyond the walls to the vast, undiscovered possibilities waiting for him off-piste. Müller brings mountains of style to the crew on both the road and the snow. Travis knows that no snowboard film would be complete without contributions from this Swiss mister.

Landvik

Mark Landvik, aka "Lando", is one of Travis' favorite partners in crime as they push each other, the boundaries of snowboarding and patience of strangers worldwide. Lando honed his AK power freestyle skills in his childhood backyard, the jagged peaks outside of Juneau, Alaska. When not on the road filming, Lando can be found exploring the terrain around Mt. Baker, Washington. Look for his alter ego, Hank, to provide comic relief throughout "The Art of FLIGHT."

Blauvelt

Jake Blauvelt made his first major global statement by winning the U.S. Open in 2004, but since has dedicated himself to mastering the craft in natural terrain. His smooth, creative, and effortless-looking style is unlike any other. Snowboarder Magazine took notice of the Vermont-native placing him on the list of 'Top 10 Riders of the Year' in both 2009 and 2010. His laid back attitude, mixed with a good sense of humor served him well on location with the "The Art of FLIGHT" crew in South America.

Moore

Pat Moore is both jack and master of all trades when it comes to snowboarding. One year he's greasing rails for slopestyle accolades and taking a pass through the Grand Prix halfpipe. The next he's become the new king of massive airs and skipping contests to build banging video parts. Through all the manifestations, Pat found the ability to fly. He holds "Highest Air" honors in the quarterpipe at the Oakley Stylemasters in China, the Abominable Snow Jam at Timberline, and the U.S. Open. Flying in style won him "Best Trick" for a massive 20-foot McTwist at the Arctic Challenge. Pat showed his good nature on the road when he took a dare from Rice to sprint across an icy Canadian lake on a snowmobile, as seen in "That's It, That's All." That willing spirit and his diverse skills as a snowboarder made him an great fit for "The Art of FLIGHT" crew.

DCP

Known by most as 'DCP,' Carrier-Porcheron carries serious weight including 18 years in the pro ranks and endless legendary film parts. A world-renowned backcountry rider, DCP has an arsenal of freestyle talent that he unleashes out in the wild. Canadian-born DCP splits his time between Squamish, British Columbia, Vail, Colorado, and Costa Rica, with his wife and daughter. He caught up with the "The Art of FLIGHT" crew to film in his neck of the woods, western Canada for a few epic adventures.

Lago

When Lago isn't taking home Olympic medals or being feted in a parade on Jimmy Kimmel, he's traveling the world. Since the 2010 Olympics, Lago's best known for his halfpipe skills, but often climbs the podium for quarterpipe and slopestyle victories. The 23-year-old competed in every snowboard contest, halfpipe, slopestyle, method and big air at Winter X Games in 2011, all with a broken jaw and a liquid diet. Lago's style shined through as he convincingly won X Games gold for best method, the benchmark trick for classic style in snowboarding. His versatility goes far beyond the park and pipe. In "The Art of FLIGHT," the down-home, New Hampshire-native gets back to nature as he takes his refined tricks deep into the mountains with Travis Rice and the crew. A fresh joie de vivre and lust for life, makes Lago a perfect travel companion.
