From our friends at Red Bull:
“Pulled directly from the mind of Red Bull athlete, Olympic medalist, and world champion mountain biker Jill KintnerBandit Hill takes Jill’s sketchbook and brings it to life. It’s a trip into a hybrid 2D and 3D world that has Kintner riding with the critters that grace her Red Bull helmet while the clouds above argue furiously amid an approaching storm. What starts as a playful adventure turns into a dramatic rescue as the ground gives way to mud monsters and the sky comes crashing down.
“In a world that feels so heavy, it’s hard to find things that lighten the mood, bring joy, and make you smile. But, if you look hard enough, try hard enough, and tap deep into your imagination, places of magic still exist. Places like Bandit Hill.”
