From the mouth of Lockdown Projects - "Even thinking about this movie makes us smile. We wanted to finish the credits of Proper with the words ‘Lockdown Projects will return with…’ like they do in the James Bond movies. We couldn't think of a cool name at the time, so we just put ‘Bad Ass Big Airs’ in and thought we’d change it later, but when people laughed as they read the line, we knew we had to keep it.
Everybody was absolutely killing it that season and getting a lot of good shots done. There’s something colourful about Bad Ass Big Airs and it definitely has the best opening section to any of the films.
Scott McMorris' part never got boring, even after seeing it hundreds of times during the edit. Si Brass' part is also really strong; he really showed how good he was that year – his BS 5 Indy and the footage of him riding for the first time as a kid is priceless! We’re still as scared watching Graham MacVoy getting avalanched over the cliff in Tignes, as when we first saw it and Gary Greenshields stepping up to the Avoriaz gap on his own will go down in history as one of the pivotal points in UK snowboarding.
Bad Ass Big Airs has the best riding of all our movies!"
