After five years, twelve webisodes and over one million views the last ski film project under the name Nipwitz is set to release. The two-year project, entitled Brain Massage, premiered at Helsinki Bio Rex Theatre on the 1st of November 2014 followed by a national premiere tour and an online release.
As the first and the last movie by the groundbreaking Finnish ski crew, Brain Massage showcases a new twist to the good old Nipwitz-approach making it genuinely one of the most unique projects in the modern freeskiing era. Shot in the cities of Scandinavia, The Baltic, Russia and beyond, Brain Massage offers a package that, once again, certainly isn’t your average ski movie.
Directed by Aarni Toiviainen the movie features skiing by Oskari Raitanen, Tommi Kostilainen, Matti Räty, Riku Laakso, Jussi Mononen, Kalle Leinonen and friends. There's a pre-order of a special Collector Box containing Brain Massage movie, extra material on DVD & Blu-ray disc. In addition, the Collector Box includes a Sauna-collaboration beanie and the exclusive Nipwitz The Book, a visual piece of art offering photos by Ville-Petteri Määttä and behind the scenes insights into the two-year journey. Art direction and graphic design by Matti Räty. Shipping early 2015.
Nipwitz - Brain Massage project is supported by Battery Energy Drink, Olympus & F-Stop.
