About Sleeping Giants

"Sleeping Giants" – Worlds first crowdfunded snowboard documentary

Have you ever heard about crowdfunding? No!? Well, „Sleeping Giants“ is worlds first snowboard movie which is partly realized by its own fans, you! The teaser is finished but there is still a lack of budget for the post-production to fill. Fans can choose various kinds of support and get interesting rewards for their donation. So don´t wait, support the project for example with 5 Euro and get the movie as high definition download delivered as christmas present earlier as regular non-backers will be able to watch it.

It happened more or less on accident when filmmaker René Eckert (www.blickinsfreie.de) decided to create a new snowboard documentary in 2011. With the unique chance to visit China, Eckert decided to use that opportunity to realize Blickinsfreie´s new masterstroke. The movie is presented by our long term partner Ripzone Europe (www.ripzone-europe.de).

After movies like "From Romania with Love“ or last year's highlight "At Equilibrium“ the new movie deals with the development of snowboarding in China. The documentary focuses on the passion-driven Chinese shredders and the key role of the Nanshan Open snowboard competition which has driven the young Chinese scene to become one of the most progressive out there.

Besides Chinese stars including Wang Lei and He Wei, legends such as Travis Parker and Risto Mattila join shooting stars Nils Arvidsson, Marc Swoboda and Werni Stock to give a deep insight into the snowboard culture of the Far East.
