In 2011, The Art of FLIGHT, probably the world’s best snowboarding film by probably the world’s best snowboarder, Travis Rice, was released.
Now, five years later, Rice is back with a sequel, The Fourth Phase, where he and some of the world’s top snowboarders make their way around the water cycle of the North Pacific Gyre.
The Fourth Phase is the first snowboarding movie ever to be shot entirely in 4K, and also uses GoPro HERO4 Black cameras to give viewers one hell of an immersive perspective.
“At its core, it’s a snowboarding film,” Rice told Daily Hive in an interview over the summer. “But with snowboarding as its backdrop, we wanted to explore a bit more of the weather engine of the Pacific Ocean.”
With The Fourth Phase being a Red Bull movie, it’s really about defying all expectations on a snowboard, and travelling 26,000 kilometres around the globe to incredibly beautiful locations.
“The beauty of the film we set out to make was incredibly challenging, it was by no means the easiest from point A to B,” Rice said.
“One of the proudest things for me with this film was, we really put ourselves out there, year after year, and we didn’t have anyone seriously injured.”
The Fourth Phase premiered in Canada in early September to a packed theatre in Vancouver, including Rice himself.
Now, thrill seekers around the world are getting a chance to see the film, which releases worldwide on Sunday, October 2 at 9 pm (time-shifted to local time).
The feature-length film will air at this special time, for free, in 28 time zones around the world, and can be viewed exclusively on Red Bull TV or via the app across devices, including mobile, Apple TV, GooglePlay, and XBOX. Starting October 3, you’ll be able to get it on iTunes, Vimeo, and more.
