Pretty Faces is a film celebrating women who thrive in the snow. The concept for the film was originated by professional big mountain skier and SheJumps co-founder, Lynsey Dyer with the objective of giving women and girls, young and old, a source of inspiration through a unique look at what is possible when boundaries are broken, dreams captured and friendships cultivated. In Lynsey’s words “I wanted to give young girls something positive to look up to…I wanted to give them their Blizzard of Ahhs, Ski Movie or High Life, but done in a way that also shows the elegance, grace, community and style that is unique to women in the mountains.”
…only 14% of athletes in major ski films were female this past season. Additionally, last season’s 14% was record female representation, up from 9% the previous season.
We see this as an opportunity to provide an inspiring documentary ski film told from a female’s perspective to connect with and celebrate skiing’s female population.
Although skiing is the focus of the film, we hope to showcase women’s on-hill success–from professional skiers to recreational enthusiasts–to inspire girls of all ages to pursue their dreams, walk the path less traveled, and reach their fullest potential, whatever path they choose.
Young girls need more positive role models to offer then an alternative to the world of skinny jeans, reality TV and fashion magazines. We aim to provide a positive source of inspiration for young girls first and foremost. The lessons learned on the mountain parallel those learned by many women who take the path less traveled. Our documentary ski film (Pretty Faces) will showcase women walking that path to deliver the message “If she can do it, then so can I.”
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Our objective is to capture this story in a manner that honors the women and inspires the viewer. We are aiming to produce this film utilizing best practice methods and technology in the film industry. To do so, we need to raise a substantial amount of money. All money raised is going to finishing the project. We (the production team) will see zero of the dollars raised via the Pretty Faces Store.
Please note which hat you’d like in the order notes during checkout. If you do not provide this, we will pick one at random. Hat on left is “Unicorn Landscape”, Hat on the upper right is “Unicorn Graffiti” had on right is “Unicorn Mascot”. Hats expected to ship just prior to Thanksgiving. (and make great stocking stuffers…)
This isn’t just a project for “big-names” in the sport. We are looking for women old and young, talented and hard working, from all backgrounds to contribute to this project. Footage that oozes excitement, passion, authenticity and hard work will be considered for inclusion in the film. After all, these are the common threads that link us all to this project…
All aspects of mountain culture will be considered. Including photography, snowboarding, yoga, mountain biking, meditation, and the hard work that allows us to participate. Again, a good story is more engaging to raw skiing talent (although we dig both!).
