Over 30 teams from around the country took place in this extra-ordinary film competition! With no creative limits or boundaries teams of two people equipped with snow boards or skis, lots of fresh snow and a video camera headed off to create their two minute clips. Each team had one week to develop a script, shoot, cut, edit and submit it to Red Bull.
Clips were then loaded onto www.redbullridetoreel.co.nz where the public were able to vote for their favourite clip.
The entries were judged on quality of the riding and editing, creativity and originality.
