For Immediate Release
(Wilson, Wyo.)—Multimedia action sports brand Teton Gravity Research (TGR) announces the release of its feature-length ski film Way of Life on iTunes. To celebrate, TGR is dropping Sage Cattabriga-Alosa’s acclaimed opening segment, set to the song DTV by Natural Child.
This opening segment, in which Cattabriga-Alosa’s signature fluidity, speed, and confidence on Alaskan faces is captured by the most sophisticated 4K aerial digital cinema system in the world, gives fans just a glimpse into Way of Life. The movie will also be available on DVD/Blu-ray.
Shot during the winter of 2013, Way of Life takes you on a journey to the mountains with today's top athletes. With stunning imagery created with GSS, Red Digital Cinema, and the Sony Action Cam, this film explores the origins of skiing in Austria, the search for original lines in Alaska from TGR's Fantasy Camp, and the U.S. Freeskiing Team's quest for Olympic gold. The adventure also leads athletes to the rugged terrain of Jackson Hole and the Tetons, as well as the backcountry of British Columbia.

"Way of Life was created to tap into the global community that embraces this way of life we're so passionate about," says Steve Jones, TGR co-founder. "TGR has over 15 years of aerial cinematography experience, and this film, which marks the cinematic debut of the GSS system, contains the most stunning footage we've ever shot."
"We really put the GSS system to use at TGR's Fantasy Camp, which is the most cutting-edge heli outpost concept ever devised," adds Todd Jones, TGR co-founder. "The camp gave us a home base from which to pick off first descents in Alaska's remote Neacola Mountains, allowing TGR to continue our tradition of exploring the unknown."
