[1/10] Race Face Creator Series presents: From Slide to Ride • Filmmaker: Skye Schillhammer

Darrington, Washington, sits nestled in the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains. This once prosperous logging town is now struggling to find an outlet for its community members and is working to fulfill the economic void once supported by the timber industry. On March 22, 2014, a landslide covered 49 homes, and claimed the lives of 43 people. This tragedy brought the community together, as they poured everything they had into the recovery. From this disaster, came the time to build a new identity, one rallying around the rugged and beautiful landscape surrounding the city. This is the story of how a natural disaster brought a town together and how mountain biking could bring inspiration back to the youth, and value to the community as a whole.

Bill McLane is a trail builder. What started as a hobby between forest firefighting seasons became a career which has helped shape the mountain bike scene on Vancouver Island. Billder takes a closer look at the craft and dedication behind the trails we sometimes take for granted. It shows that when people pursue their passion, we're all better for it.

It is the last day of summer and Julia is at the local bike shop hoping that her bike can be fixed. While checking out the flashy displays of new bikes and shiny components, a comic book catches her eye. The comic explores a world which stylizes the sights and sounds she experiences on the trails. The comic captures her imagination and she soon finds herself on a ride like none other.

Judging by the first three (out of 10!) I'd have to say Race Face must be over the moon about the quality of submissions. Already three worthy winners. Really inspiring, enjoyable work from everyone involved.
