Quarantine ReScreen | The Low Pressure Podcast | #137 Jeff Schmuck
In the time of COVID-19, a lot of us have found ourselves with an uptick in how much screen time is present in our lives.
If you’re like me, that means a lot of scrolling, and quite a bit of combing through content in search of something that a) I want to watch or listen to, and b) something that will hold my attention. So, it seems an appropriate time to roll out the #QRS, or, the Quarantine ReScreen. To read more about the origin of the #QRS, click here.
Switching it up on this edition of the #QRS with a podcast. Here’s something for those of you who are working from home and want something to listen to while you pretend you’re paying attention to your video conference, or those trying to stay sane by starting to run again and are in need of a distraction while you plod past mile 3.
The idea for the Quarantine ReScreen came from the hype of Premier Season in the ski/snowboard world (aka Fall, one of the 4 weather seasons that normal people acknowledge). Therefor it seemed only fitting to feature Mark Warner’s podcast interview with Jeff Schmuck on The Low Pressure Podcast. Schmuck is the head judge of IF3 and serves as the editor of Forecast Ski Magazine.
IF3 is an annual film festival that doles out awards for deserving ski and ride flicks. The festival takes place in the fall and serves as the kickoff for the ski/ board movie premier tours that follow. While we can’t partake in the social aspect of IF3, which sucks because it’s an absolute blast, we can cop a behind the scenes glance at what goes into film selection for the fest. Schmuck is tasked with sifting through the entries to find the gems. Yes, that means hours and hours of watching ski and board films… best job ever? (Jeff, if you ever need help, give me a holler). He talks about the process and also sheds some perspective on the snow sports industry that he’s observed through his tenure. Toss in the ear buds, or don’t if you’re in solitary quaranfinement, and queue up the pod.
