For the first time, Vans is putting out its very own full-length snowboarding film. Known as LANDLINE, the feature is billed as providing a “raw, behind the lens perspective of the Vans snowboard team as they travel the globe showcasing their creative talents and eclectic personalities.” The movie was shot mainly on Kodak 16mm film and features Tanner Pendleton as the director.
“Snowboarding films have always provided me with endless amounts of inspiration,” Pendleton says. “I want this film to reach out to kids out there the same way these films reached me when I was young. This collaborative vision is a true expression of some of the most real and dedicated people in snowboarding.”
LANDLINE was filmed over the course of over two years, and finds the Vans skateboarding team in the midst of a journey across countries like Russia, Canada and Bulgaria. Professional snow team riders such as Jake Kuzyk, Sam Taxwood, Cole Navin, Arthur Longon, Pat Moore and others will be given full parts in the film.
