The Game – Rogatkin & Thelander
The Åre Bike Festival hit Åre again last weekend, bringing the Åre Video Challenge back with it for a revival after having been tucked away for two years. In short that was really awesome news for those of us who remeber Martin Söderström’s epic Team Douche video back in 2012 (who could ever forget that gem?).
Five teams had five days to shoot and edit bangers in the Åre bike trails, treating the crews to both rain storms and cold weather but tahnkfully also some sunny skies and midnight sun.
After screenings before a jury of 5 and a pumped crowd of 750, one entry came out on top. Team Whiteout’s ‘The Game’, featuring Anton Thelander and Nicholi Rogatkin in an epic 80’s game setting produced by Åre-based Whiteout Pictures.
