MePowder is a film about WePowder, its inspiring founder Maurice Mommen and our shared passion for freeriding.

Filmproject Update in times of Corona

Dear funders,

the last couple of months it’s been pretty quiet around the film project. It were of course exceptional and weird times. The Corona epidemic made havoc around the world and that didn’t come in handy for he project; we had some film trips planned in March, April and May which we were forced to cancel. On top of that, it was quite a mediocre winter in terms of powder days, so we didn’t manage to capture enough footage in the snow.

Maurice and I were in the Paznautal, in Kappl during the Dutch Freeride championship. The seriousness of the whole situation started to really sink in and when we found out that we were in some sort of hotspot, we decided to leave a day early, just before the whole valley got shut off. After that we went into voluntary quarantaine and have been keeping in touch through phone calls and Facetime.

To give some hope, I made a #stayhome movie (you might have seen it on Insta early April) with some footage shot this winter.

Now that rules are being softened and borders are slowly opening again, we can finally go filming again. This summer I’m planning interviews in Holland and to follow Maurice in his home town, in and out of the water.

 

Next winter we’ll hopefully be back in the mountains and we’ll just continue where we stranded this season. The initial release of the movie will shift by a year.

 

From now on I’ll try to post regular updates but for those of you who have questions, feel free to contact me.

 

Stay safe!

Erik
