While much of North America endured record snowfalls, the urban areas throughout the midwest lay uncharacteristically dry. So when Cam Riley, Sean Jordan, and Clayton Vila linked up in Duluth to shoot a street part, the lack of snow forced the crew to get creative.

Because, after all, they were  creating the urban segment for Teton Gravity Research’s newest movie, Rogue Elements. But the boys persevered, and created one of the more memorable segments in the flick.

Check out some of the behind the scenes action:


But ultimately, they weren’t able to stitch together enough snow to make it work. They had to leave Duluth and skip over to Spokane — and later, Massachussetts — for some added shots. At the end of the day, the boys were able to pull it off, creating one of the more interesting and stylized segments in the entire movie.

But don’t just take our word for it; the fine folks over at TGR put up a whole feature documenting the process from start to finish. Check it out HERE!
