Vans Snow is proud to announce the global premiere of ELLES, a film created in collaboration with global team rider Arthur Longo and renowned snow film director Tanner Pendleton, set to kick off tonight, December 2, 2021, at 6 PM PST on Vans’ YouTube channel.
ELLES spotlights a talented crew, including Longo, Hana Beaman, Blake Paul, Dan Liedahl, Mary Rand, Darrel Mathes and Parker Szumowski. Tapping into creative freedoms, the film rejects the pursuit for perfect conditions while embracing the journey, capturing snowboarding that is accessible to everyone and all the little moments in between.
The project was created during a time of uncertainty for much of the world. While the year kicked off with more questions than answers, by February 2021 Arthur was able to begin riding every day in Switzerland, while sending daily updates to Tanner in New York. “Knowing what many were going through in other European countries during this same time, we took every single day as a blessing,” Arthur said of filming the project. “ We wanted to portray day to day snowboarding without trying to make it look more sexy than what it is. Discovering Switzerland more in depth was also a highlight,” he added.
