For Immediate Release
WARREN MILLER’S Dynasty
The World’s Largest Action Sports Film Announces its 60th Annual U.S. Tour
Boulder, CO – August 14, 2009 – Sixty years ago, an adventurous man with a pair of wooden boards strapped to his feet and an 8mm-movie camera in his hand changed the way we thought about snow. Today, Warren Miller is the most recognized name in the ski industry, and Warren Miller Entertainment® (WME) hosts the largest action sports film tour on the planet. This winter, we celebrate 60 years of filmmaking with the release of Warren Miller’s Dynasty. Fresh cinematography and immeasurable talent explodes from Dynasty, showcasing the experience, the influence, and the originality that has grown from the action sports filmmaking institution that is Warren Miller Entertainment.
From October through December 2009, Warren Miller’s Dynasty will crisscross the country on a nationwide film tour. Narrated by Jonny Moseley and presented in striking high-definition, Dynasty highlights winter’s most gripping explorations and ultimate challenges…the new, the old, and the unknown…the steep, the deep, and the unthinkable. All of the action in this anniversary addition is set to an unmatched, innovative soundtrack, including music from Incubus, Silversun Pickups, and Band of Horses.
Warren Miller’s Dynasty takes you on a breathtaking global tour of China, Alaska, Norway, Colorado, British Columbia, and more. Join legendary WME athlete Chris Anthony as he treks into China’s interior on a search for the birthplace of skiing; follow mountaineering marvel Chris Davenport to Norway’s highest peaks; reunite with the pride of the Midwestern ski community, Luke and Adam Schrab; and catch a rare glimpse at historic clips from Warren Miller Entertainment’s vault of vintage footage.
When asked about Dynasty, the film’s director and producer Max Bervy said, “Warren Miller's Dynasty reveals the past, present, and future of winter sports. It is a film that gathers the generations under one roof, from the Crist family patriarch to Daron Rahlves, and the explosion of young terrain-park talent they've inspired. It's like a family reunion, held in neck-deep pow, with mandatory air required for entry. It leaves no snowball unturned in celebrating everyone who has, is, and will forever be a part of Warren Miller's Dynasty.”
Warren Miller’s Dynasty will sweep the nation as a limited release, stopping in more than 240 U.S. cities, including major markets like Seattle, Chicago, and Los Angeles. With screenings often running for one night only, Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following and mark the official start of winter for sports enthusiasts everywhere. Warren Miller premiers are an experience, a party, and a phenomenon not to be missed. Come and celebrate with us…60 years of breaking trail!
