I gained thorough production & post-production knowledge and the invaluable skills of communication within a small business environment. All of which will be highly beneficial throughout a career in this industry” – Caroline Brouckaert | Assistant Editor at TAA

Season 04 Drops

“The biggest thing that we can do to preserve this sport… Is to not lose its soul…” – Kilian Jornet

On January 20th 2014 we released our latest season of Salomon Running TV. The series unfolds over the next 9 months with 8 short films revealing stories and characters from across the globe.

Production on Season 04 saw us travelling to all new locations including the Giant Redwoods of Northern California, the Scottish Highlands, The Lake District in England, The Alps, Berlin, The Rockies in Colorado and at the infamous Dungeons big wave surf spot in South Africa.

The Season explores some poignant themes as its characters share their innermost worlds through the sport that they love most – running.

“I have referenced a lot of themes from the writing of Bruce Chatwin.” says director Dean Leslie. “I am interested in who we are, or maybe rather who we were; the nomadic lifestyle, migration, movement, new experience. The idea that human beings were born to wander and roam the earth, and be connected to nature, rather than settle in sedentary societies locked into technological screens”
