Why couldn't they wait until i was out of college??
20 November 2005 | by DaSpankinsSee all my reviews

WOW, i just saw the previews for this movie, i would have loved to have a chance to film it. Its my dream to film snowboarding and i believe this will be a great film. I'm starting out to film locals for a small time production company. This will give me great ideas how to take it to the next level. I think its a sweet idea to get 5 Generations together and have them talk about how life is with snowboarding. It will be very interesting to see how the sport came to be as it is these days. There are many stories told on how snowboarding became what it is. Cast in point, in the movie Out Cold. "Did i ever tell you that i invented snowboarding, I didn't want any credit but they kept giving it to me. I believe that this movie wont be a big hit to the Major public, but to the people that have snowboard as a passion it will be AMAZING.
