Tanner Hall, the Movie

Win for Ski Movie Diversity

There's a new movie out called Tanner Hall. But it's not what you think it is: no X Games, no reggae, and no skiing. Instead, it's a flick about a fictional, elite boarding school called, you guessed it, Tanner Hall.

What do you think of ski movies today? All ski movies are the same. Even when they say they’re revolutionary. None of them have a plot. They jump off something big, they go to meet with other cool people like themselves. Where is the fat guy skiing? Where are the beginners falling off chairlifts? Where is the slapstick humor that made ski movies so good in the past?   So you decided to make one that’s better than all the rest? There’s a lot of pain in the ski industry right now, both on the resort side and the manufacturing side. We had this global economic meltdown, declining revenues, draught. It seems like one misery after the other. We need a joke. Cheap Ski Movie’s tagline is ‘It’s a movie for the times. Hard times.’ (click to the next slide for the rest of the interview)

Cheap Ski Movie, a comic documentary-style take on ski porn that will tour the country next fall. We spoke to Turner about heli-skiing in Massachusetts and how to make a ski movie for under $60,000 (hint: use cardboard).
