VIDEO: “Maneuvers” – Amazing Stop-Motion Animation Skiing

SnowBrains |

Sämi Ortlieb is an accomplished skier, designer, filmmaker, animator, and member of a hardcore punk band. In this film, “Maneuvers,” his many passions collide into a playful ode to the do-it-yourself origins of skiing and its close relationship to nature.

Using stop-motion animation for a fittingly hand-made feel, Sämi transforms natural materials into an endless playground. Former obstacles such as melting snow and tree branches become unexpected opportunities for skiers to play and interact with the environment.
