The gods have answered the collective prayers of snowboarding by having Arthur Longo, Jake Price, Harry Hagan, Olivier Gittler, and Tanner Pendleton all team up to make a movie. If you add all of their resumes up, that is snowboarding’s equivalent to Wes Anderson caliber skill behind and in front of the lens. Some of the best we will ever see. From his recent success with SHE, Arthur will be debuting ELLES (French for “THEY” or more directly translated as multiple “SHES”) alongside riding from friends and teammates Hana Beaman, Blake Paul, Dan Liedahl, Mary Rand, Darrel Mathes and Park Szumowski. WE CAN’T WAIT FOR THIS ONE. Trailer above, full movie dropping worldwide December 2, 2021.
Kicking off the 2021-22 season, Vans Snow is excited to unveil the latest film project in collaboration with global team rider Arthur Longo and renowned snow film director Tanner Pendleton, ELLES, set to premiere globally December 2, 2021. In ELLES, the crew rejects the pursuit for perfect conditions and instead embraces the creative journey, capturing snowboarding that is accessible to everyone and all the little moments in between.
One of the strongest riders in the game, Arthur Longo’s creative approach to his riding, art, and his award-winning film series SHE, uniquely positions him as one of the only people who could take such a nontraditional approach and still produce absolutely jaw dropping footage.
While most snowboard projects often revolve around spending weeks in the mountains waiting for weather to break only for one opportunity to get the shot, Vans collaborated with Arthur, Tanner, and team to shatter that mold. The result is a film that dedicates time to the stories and people behind the riding, their creative pursuits off the board, and the cool locations they encounter along the way. Featuring a talented roster of Vans team riders including Hana Beaman, Blake Paul, Dan Liedahl, Mary Rand, Darrel Mathes and Park Szumowski, ELLES aims to shift the snowboarding community’s perception on what makes a great snowboard film.
