As we’ve been posting for the past four weeks, tomorrow is the last day to back Lynsey Dyer’s Kickstarter project to fund the Pretty Faces all-women’s ski film project. The response has been overwhelming with more than 100 grand of pledges pushing the effort past even its secondary goal. To keep the excitement for this pioneering effort flowing, we’ve linked to Dyer’s new GoPro teaser below that includes footage from her South America trip this past summer. But sick action and high fives aside, now is the time to open the wallet and kick down to help give these rad ladies their own ski film. Donate here or read more below.
Pretty Faces aims to tell the story of skiing throughout a woman’s life; the story of the skier girl. Although the film will showcase females at the top of the sport, it is not limited to professional athletes. The real story is the confidence that skiing can bring forth in a female’s life, no matter where in life that person may be. This story includes the achievements on skis as well as the story of taking the path less traveled. We explore what it means to take risks and how women are doing that in many different ways.
Our essential vision (with creative license to change as we discover the documentary process) is to celebrate skiing’s impact on a multitude of phases of a women’s life: from a young girl to a working professional, pro skier or grandmother, there are unique elements connecting the female outdoor enthusiast. We want to visually identify these components as they relate to the human experience.
