Critically acclaimed director Dana Brown (“Step Into Liquid” and “Dust to Glory”) teams up with his father, Academy Award Nominee Bruce Brown (“Endless Summer” and “On Any Sunday”) to journey deeper into the humanity, thrills and excitement of the global culture of motorcycle riding; those that are bonded by their passion for the race, the thrill of the ride, the love of the family and friendship, and on a deeper level – their quest for the thrill of the next ride.
In 1971, “On Any Sunday” starring Steve McQueen opened in theaters and wrote its place in motorcycle history. It also transcended the sport to reach a wide audience through a cast of engaging characters and variety of heartfelt stories. “On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter” will continue this family tradition and also pass the torch to the next generation. A lot has happened in the past 40 years, but the passion for riding is timeless and continues today.
CONGO: The Grand Inga Project chronicles legendary kayaker Steve Fisher and his elite expedition team as they battle seemingly insurmountable obstacles, navigate the maddening politics of a crooked country, and face their own worst fears in an attempt to be the first explorers ever to survive the Inga Rapids. "This is a river like no other, and these rapids were a big step more difficult than we'd anticipated," says Fisher, recalling 20-foot breaking waves, deadly whirlpools, and basketball court-sized hydraulics. "We may have survived these rapids, but somehow we feel more humbled than proud."
With years of experience as athletes, explorers and cinematographers, Fisher and his team bring viewers inside this tight crew of paddlers and onto the rapids, while along the way meeting and surpassing the production value expected by today's audiences. In CONGO, no effort is spared in telling the story of what really happens when you decide to take on the deadliest rapids on earth.
The Slednecks army has had many soldiers step up to the front lines and lead the charge. Chris Brown is now on his tenth tour of duty. Since Slednecks 7, Chris has been one of the most well rounded snowmobilers on the planet. Whether he is launching huge cliffs, carving technical lines thru tight trees or charging his turbo up narrow chutes, Chris Brown is always pushing the limits of himself and the sport.
There are only a small amount of people on the planet who have the skills and courage to be pioneers. Heath Frisby, Joe Parsons, and the Moore brothers are some of those people. They continue to invent new tricks and do things they were told were impossible. MixTape 3 showcases them in what may be the best ever Winter X Games competition.
Many of the new young guns of the sport credit the Slednecks film series as the spark that got them into the sport. One of those athletes is Brad Gilmore. He is a true big mountain bad ass. Brad's segment from Slednecks 16 is one of our all-time favorites so we included it for your viewing pleasure.
The Slednecks MixTape series pays tribute to those early pioneers, and to the wave of soldiers that marched behind them, revolutionizing a sport forever. New footage, new edits, and new interviews make this a must have for any fan of Slednecks.
