Far Out Ones: Clayton Vila

REI presents Far Out, the new ski and snowboard film by Teton Gravity Research.

Possessing raw talent is pretty much a given for TGR’s roster, but few combine athletic ability with savant-like creativity quite like filmmaker Clayton Vila. The artistic mind behind the award-winning 2015 urban ski film, for lack of better, Vila is no stranger to making something from nothing, evading the cops and seeing lines where all others see a trip to the hospital. This year, the double-threat is back by popular demand — in front, and behind the lens — directing his old partner in crime, Sean Jordan, in Crested Butte, and throwing down some sends of his own amidst the urban decay of forgotten Russia. Recently, we caught up with Vila to learn more about his side passions, how he reconciles the glamour of social media with the inevitable grind of real life, and of course, all the gritty details behind his contributions to this year’s TGR film, Far Out, presented by REI.
