There are so many things that we can do at home while in isolation. But there are also many that we can’t, and skiing is certainly one of them. Or is it? Photographer and filmmaker Philipp Klein Herrero found a way to ski in his living room. Well, sort of. In his humorous and entertaining stop motion video, Philipp goes freeride skiing without even leaving home.
As it happened for most of us, the current coronavirus situation totally changed plans for Philipp and his family. “Just before the current health situation locked us in, I was about to go Freeriding with my family,” he writes in the video description. “It was supposed to be the big adventure of the year, the one I had been eagerly awaiting for a year.” However, things turned out as they did. Like many of us, Philipp and his family had to put their plans on hold, but he couldn’t stop thinking about skiing. “So I started to think how I could ski without leaving my living room.” And it seems that he figured it out.
Other than fully gearing up for skiing, Philipp used pretty humble props: a couple of white sheets. He even used the same camera that he probably would for the actual skiing and created his video with a GoPro Hero 7 Black. Although his video is only a minute long, it’s packed with interesting and hilarious moments, just like actual freeride skiing videos.
I generally like stop motion videos and I’ve seen plenty of creative projects made using this technique. And knowing how tedious it is, I admire stop motion creators even more. I find Philipp’s video clever and utterly amusing, and it’s also a great example of what you can do if you’re bored in isolation. :)
