Get EUROtic

It’s time to get EUROtic!!  The second movie from the Lipstick Productions crew will be out this Autumn with the trailer / teaser due to drop any day now.

Lipstick Productions first came about in 2011 when Conny Bleicher planned on starting a European girls snowboard movie project to bring together and showcase the best talents in European female snowboarding. Featuring a  number of Nikita team riders, the girls‘ travels took them to locations in Austria, Finland, Turkey, France and Norway in order to film and when the first teaser dropped, Conny was pretty overwhelmed with the immediate response.  Last September the fruits of their labour was produced; “5 more minutes…please?!”.   The first release saw them win the ‘Coup de Couer’ award at the Snowboard Garden Festival, Grenoble on 15th October 2011 before the Official World Premiere took place at the Weekender Club in Innsbruck on 21st October with subsequent successful premieres in Bratislava, Vienna, London, Zurich, Munich, Zagreb, Ljubljana, Berlin and Prague!

With plenty of humour, the movie not only touched on the unquestionable skills of the riders and the obvious fun of they have riding but also the challenges they faced. With the achievement of the first ever Lipstick Productions movie, Conny was soon talking about going into a second season with the help of Nikita’s Ana Rumiha as sidekick and Rene Gallo on board as main filmer, editor and film director – the only guy that can handle them all! In the run up to the second movie ‘EUROtic’, due to drop this autumn, the girls have been releasing a series of podacsts from Austria, Iceland, Macedonia, tripping from Atlantic to the Mediterranean and sessioning Laax.

Conny Bleicher: “We basically started filming 1st of January when the first crew (Ana, Basa and Urska) had already been to Iceland for three weeks to film street.  While the Icelandic crew were struggling with constantly changing weather, the other crew (Julia, Diana, Tini, Lisa and Conny) were making the best of Austrian heavy snow falls which resulted with a few amazing backcountry sessions. We were relieved to close January with almost as much footage as we had at the end of last year’s season, giving us some breathing space to continue the rest of our filming…

Watch this space for the teaser…
