Full Room Productions is dedicated to capturing the purest, rawest and rowdiest ski and snowboard footage out there. No matter what the conditions, you can always find us taking full advantage of what we are offered. FRP is founded on friendship and the common passion we all share for the mountains. Originally started merely to have fun and to highlight our season, we have grown to a professional level and look to continue our progression in artistic cinematography.
The idea of Full Room Productions actually started when I was back in high school living with my parents in Wisconsin. My friends and I were doing a lot of skating and rollerblading at the time, mainly just to get to places. We continued to progress and started going to a nearby skate park (which were very rare back then) called The Turf. I’ll never forget the friends I made there and the good times we had. After some time we really wanted to see ourselves skating, so I started borrowing my dad’s old VHS camcorder. This thing was like having a small computer slung over your shoulder. Anyway, we kept shooting with it and started to acquire a decent amount of crappy skate footage.
Ever since I started skating and skiing I always thought it would be pretty cool to try to make my own video. The problem was this was back around the mid nineties and the technology of computer (nonlinear) editing was almost nonexistent, and a linear system would’ve set me back thousands of dollars that I didn’t have. So I took two VCR’s, put together the clips I wanted on one tape, then dubbed that onto another tape replacing the audio with music. It was pretty ghetto to say the least, and the quality was terrible since it was third generation video. However at the time we were stoked, we had our own video! We called the video “Being Pro” and of course since we produced it we needed a production name. We did the editing with all of us crammed together in my small room in the basement. Full Room Productions was born.
Over the following years I got my own HI8 camera, and eventually sold that and got a digital 8. My parents got a new computer, gave me their old one, and I got a old version of Adobe Premiere. Finally, I was able to do everything I ever wanted with my editing. In 2001 I produced my first real video called A Midwest Legacy. It had a lot of skating some skiing and snowboarding, and a lot of partying. It is one of my most memorable videos of growing up. Around this time I realized my true passion was with skiing, and so I moved to Colorado in the fall of 2001. After eight years in Colorado and seven features later, I now call Jackson Hole home.
Over the years I have realized my true calling in life. It is to enjoy our precious times in the mountains, and to capture those moments to share with others. With the friends I have made, the mountains we have explored, and the incredible feats we have all witnessed, I, no we, bring to you our lives in the mountains. We appreciate your support and hope you enjoy our creations.
