Frames by 2DeepMedia
Eddie Foster is a storyteller. He is poetic, emotive, and meticulous. He captivates your senses and can find drama in even the most ordinary moments. His cinematic dexterity might leave you thinking that a Hollywood director decided to make a few passion-project ski flicks, but in fact, Foster is just a talented, up-and-coming ski filmmaker with a knack for drama.
Chronicling Foster’s adventures through British Columbia with Kieran Nikula, Frames follows his journey from his home in Hong Kong into Canada’s world-renowned backcountry terrain. Foster takes the glimpse of storytelling we saw in We Find Light and continues its evolution throughout Frames’ twenty-six minutes.
As soon as the film begins, you can tell this isn’t traditional ski porn: for the first five minutes, there isn’t even a trace of snow. It’s like that feeling you get when you’re trying to fall asleep but the forecast is calling for three feet by sunrise; you can’t help but squirm. Stunning cinematography and hyper-realistic sound design highlight Foster’s dramatic flair and breathe life into a beautiful, poetic work that just happens to be about skiing.
