The fourth installment of Van’s major features, EVERGREEN. exhibits the drive of Landline., coalesced with the lighthearted nature of Together Forever and Lovely Day. EVERGREEN. focuses on key riders in a format that is more fluid than a traditional part-based project. With Sam Taxwood, Kennedi Deck, Jake Kuzyk, Pat Moore, Bryan Iguchi, Benny Urban, Arthur Longo, Darrell Mathes, Dan Liedahl, Blake Paul, Parker Szumowski, Mike Ravelson, and Cole Navin, the riders provide an array of snowboard style that all boils down into one enjoyable watch.
We knew Scandinavia produced incredible snowboarders, but the energy that this video brought, as well as the roster of riders, seemed to exceed many people's expectations about what one move could show. The follow-up to 2013's Scandalnavians depicts the highest level of riding in both street and backcountry disciplines, with the riders in this project showing perhaps the broadest spectrum of snowboarding in a single project. The Scandalnavians consist of filmer/editor Kristofer “Kuske” Fahlgren, and riders Sven Thorgren, Nisse Arvidsson, Johan Nordhag, Ludvig Billtoft, Alek Østreng, Fridtjof "Fridge" Tischendorf, Len Roald Jørgensen, Antti Jussila, Halldor Helgason and Eiki Helgason.
Dustbox. I wanted most
An explosive follow up to their 2019 award-winning project Dustbox Presents, the Dustbox crew’s sequel I wanted most takes the infamous van on a 10,000-mile mission ultimately leading to cinematic success, as bestowed by their peers. Operating on easily the smallest budget of any other video in this nomination, Dan McGonagle, Robby Meehan, Cody Warble, Peter Cerulo, Cooper Whittier, Reid Smith, Jonas Harris, Brett Kulas, Ryan Collins, Noah Peterson Benny Milam, Mo Jennings and Colton Morgan prove that a true connection between riders can create a project that stands out amongst the industry’s most well-funded endeavors.
A highly anticipated venture considering Burton’s last submission to the video pool was nearly 10 years ago, ONE WORLD captures nearly 40 riders in one fast-paced package. From street footage of Niels Shack, Maria Thomsen, Ethen Diess and Max Zebe to the massive AK lines with Ben Ferguson, Mikkel Bang to Red Gerard, Mark McMorris, Brock Crouch and Danny Davis putting up in Jackson Hole, the movie delivers an immense offering considering it’s standing as a one-year project.
