My new class giving a peak at my creative process! skl.sh/matty
Met a bunch of amazing Italian strangers in the northern region of Trentino, Italy who took me way up into the Italian alps to go hiking and mountain biking. People have been asking me to make a sports video, so thought it would be fun to try it out! A week of run and gun fun! I feel like I now have a second family deep in the mountains of Italy!
Thank you everyone who guided me through and took me in with welcoming smiles and giving me such a great adventure! Special thank you to Mikaela Bandini, Chiara De Pol, Paolo Pincelli, and Caspar Diederik.
And to all the bikers and hikers who took me way up into the mountains to show me the Italian way of life! You guys are truly an inspiration! I hope to be as cool as all of you someday, haha! :)

As mountain bikers it is our nature to explore and get lost in the woods in search of the next prime stretch of singletrack. Riding in Whitefish and the surrounding Flathead Forrest of Montana, there are opportunities abound for us to fulfill this inner desire. Whitefish Mountain is the hub of riding activity with purpose built park jumps and rugged natural, mountain lines linking together a lift-serve experience that rivals any park in the country. We spent many an afternoon testing the limits of our trail bikes there. Venturing outside of town limits and into the fringes of this sparsely populated state, miles of trails were revealed. The high ridge-lines of the Alpine Trail network provide distant views of glaciers and what felt like endless turns. Further west, strewn between the lakes region, we found untracked dirt veiled by seasons of pine needle decay. After a week exploring the region, we began to question ourselves and ponder relocation to this alcove of like-minded riders, world-class trails, and the plethora of local breweries was an additional draw.
This is a piece I've put together from a film my dad made exactly 24 years ago. (Which happens to line up with my birthday) The project was shot entirely Eastman Kodak 5247 film, so I recently had it transferred by Fotokem at 2K resolution so I could edit and perform the color correction digitally. Hope you enjoy!
