    Video "Patterns": A senior project on Meterology and the Future of Eastern Skiing

    Hey all,



    If anyone wants to take a brief look back at winter and skiing, hear me out! I just completed my senior year at Milton Academy in Milton. MA and spent the month of May working on my senior project. I decided to create a documentary on skiing and meteorology, focusing on the future of the ski industry in the east. The movie is titled "Patterns". I met with several familiar faces, including Dr. Judah Cohen and Tim Kelley to help shape my movie. I also met with Powder Magazine editor Porter Fox and Mt. Abram GM/Mountain Riders Alliance co-founder Dave Scanlan.

    The final product is a 34 minute documentary divided into four parts.
    (Intro) The Love of Skiing
    1. The Origin of Our Snow
    2. Documenting the Past and recording the future (essentially a Blue Hills Observatory plug)
    3. Changing patterns, Changing ski seasons.




    I think you all, no matter your stance on the situation, will find my final revelation to be intriguing.

    The video is titled "Milton Academy edition" because I had to premiere this movie live to students at my school and there are a few stories by students included in the intro which were more geared to get my friends laughing rather than for content. I may re-release Patterns in a few weeks with these stories edited out.

    Anyways, if this interests you, check it out! Let me know what you think

    P.S: I would recommend watching on either 720p or 1080Hd resolutions. In addition, a few years ago I told a few of you that I was in college. Don't know why I did that, but I'm sorry for misleading you all.

    And here I thought we were all really 19 year old girls hiding our true identities behind a keyboard

    That said, cool video and you should get a good grade for that.

    Nice job, dude. Glad I went to high school back when the toughest part of senior year was just showing up.
