Superheroes of Stoke Trailer from MSP Films on Vimeo.

Twenty years after releasing their first ski film, Matchstick Productions is taking a look back. Their newest film, Superheroes of Stoke, follows some of freeskiing's biggest new names and pays honor to trailblazers from Shane McConkey to Sarah Burke. “We never knew we’d make it this far,” executive producer Murray Wais says. “So when we realized that this new film would represent a milestone in MSP’s history we decided to relate where we’ve been to where we are now. Skiing has always meant everything to us, and we’re all living in a really exciting era for the sport. This movie captures that excitement and puts it on display courtesy of the latest filmmaking equipment available.”

Highlights from 19 years of footage have been edited down and mixed in with new footage of cutting-edge tricks and lines shot with some of the geekiest cameras available. The film will debut in Seattle on September 15 and travel to 150 locations around the globe. DVD and Blu-Ray copies can be preordered now for delivery in October. The movie will also be available on iTunes in October.
