Setting the Standard with Mike Hatchett — TGR


When Mike Hatchett first picked up a film camera and focused it on someone descending the slopes sideways, odds are that he had no idea he would be spending the next three decades actively adding to the highlight reel of snowboarding history. Since getting that first roll of film processed, Mike, alongside his brother Dave, has documented countless first descents and NBDs and released more than a dozen movies and hundreds of segments under the Standard Films banner. This cannon would inform, inspire, and entertain millions of devout devourers of snowboarding culture and, true to their brand, would consistently set the “standard” for cutting-edge action and image capture. Kazuhiro Kokubo, Halldor Helgason, Torstein Horgmo, Terje Haakonsen, Travis Parker, John Jackson, Jeremy Jones, Victoria Jealouse, Peter Line, Daniel Franck, Jim Rippey, Jamie Lynn; the list of legends who’ve appeared in front of Mike’s lens is as long as it is esteemed.
