I went to see Warren Miller's film "Impact" last night.
But the opening sequence caught my eye. It had a woman spinniing cloth poi with the alaskan wilderness as her backdrop. It was VERY beautiful, if I may say so. She was interspersed with the footage of skiiers and snowboarders, it showed a lot of the peaceful side of the sport.
Then near the end of the segment. they showed her spinning in slow motion in the foreground, the tails whipping around her. Then in the background the helicopter rose up, the spin if the rotors a nice counter to the poi, and it flew away in slow motion. It was just a very nice visual.
My friend with me nudged my knee, like he was saying to me "Alternative my tail." I thought it was very nice, actually. The fact I'm a zen snowbaorder doesn't hurt either.
