There is something special about skiing as a family. We have not been skiing Pico Mountain as long as some of the families we know from there, but we have been embraced and loved by them. We have come to love and trust many these ski families and we look forward to skiing with them each and every Winter weekend. We cherish every day, we are able to spend on the slopes with these families, and this one family featured in this film; well no words can describe our love for them. This family always has some sort of adventure without planning it and no matter what the ski conditions are, they always make the best of it.
The concept for “IMAGINATION” was thought out a year in advance not knowing that this short film would serve relevant during these Covid times. The opening scenes were shot on our daughter’s last day outside before quarantine and it was the last time she had seen her classmates. The date was March 11th. The entire project was shot in 2 days and there are no retakes, and was all shot in real time.
