Yobeat’s YoMerica! A Movie Staring You

by The Editors on February 7, 2013

Our favorite independent snowboarding website Yobeat is crowd sourcing a snowboard movie and they want you to be in it. The movie titled YoMerica! will be filmed by everyone featuring everyone. Here’s what it’s about:

It’s about you, me, us and we. It’s about going snowboarding, taking turns, laps, night riding and all the feelings that made us start and keep riding. It’s for the kids who ride every day, the warriors who drive hours each weekend for a few laps on some shitty hill, the good kids who hook up their friends and the pros who inspire us all. This is a film for snowboarders, no matter where they fall on the totem pole, to enjoy, laugh at and contribute to.

We better get our filmer on the program so we can start collecting some footy. You should, too. For the official details, follow the jump.THIS IS YOUR OPEN CASTING CALL FOR YOMERICA THE MOVIE. YOU, YES YOU, CAN BE IN THIS MOVIE!

What we need from you:

Good snowboarding. You can send anything you damn want, but we’re trying to make a sick snowboard video here so think about it like this — It can be b-roll if you’re Scott Stevens, but otherwise we want your hammers.

This movie is about everyone’s snowboard experience, so if you aren’t nailing the shots, we also want to see your shred lifestyle! Shot ideas for this could be, but are not limited to:

-Your Shred mobile! Got a sick van, veggie bus, or moped with treads? Let’s see it.

-Riding with your country’s flag – Yomerica is a made up place where we all live, so don’t
think you have to be in ‘Murrica, or even North ‘Murrica to submit.

-Dudes in ski masks — but ya know, snowboarding, not robbing banks.

-Eating super gross lodge food — how many condiments can you get on one burger?

-Destroying snow men. Those jerks had it coming.

-Give a stranger a high five. Bonus points for hot chicks and or midgets. A hot midget will definitely get you in the video.

-Shot gun a beer in the parking lot (if you are 21 of course)

-A doubles run… Holding hands, or not.

-Burning stuff. But not brand new gear like JP Walker.

-A row of your crew doing shots at your local bar (again, 21 plus please and no fake ids)

-Super harsh slams .. but only ones you didn’t mean to happen.

GET CREATIVE.
