Matt Devino has set out to make a documentary that showcases the aspects of snowboarding that stretch beyond the contest arena that is so often synonymous with this sport in the mainstream. Definition: Snowboarding seeks to answer the question, “what is snowboarding?” It is of course a personal question, but through looking at all the areas of snowboarding, Devino seeks to illuminate the multitude of ways that snowboarding is defined by the people that love to do it.

From Matt Devino:

What is Snowboarding? A sport? A lifestyle? An art form? It’s a simple question with an almost infinite number of answers…

This is a trailer for a feature length documentary film I’ve been working on in my free time with virtually no funding. I’m hoping to garner interest in the project with this trailer and use it to raise funding to complete the feature length film.

Definition: Snowboarding will be an in-depth look at all of the genres of snowboarding through the eyes of pro riders and non-pros alike. I aim to create a film that both the general public and the hardcore snowboarder will enjoy, and to share all of the amazing aspects of riding instead of the homogenized X-Games/halfpipe riding most people are familiar with. Ultimately I want to inspire new people to go snowboarding for the first time, and reinvigorate current riders to get out there and enjoy their boards more often.
