Oakley Announces "The Ordinary Skier:" Two Year RED Camera Documentary on Iconic Oakley Athlete Seth Morrison


Oakley’s 1242 Productions, in cooperation with Constantine “CP” Papanicolaou, announced today the upcoming release of “The Ordinary Skier,” a documentary film on Oakley skier Seth Morrison.

“I want the film to show that you can make whatever you want to out of yourself, says Morrison. “That whatever it is, if it’s driven by passion and you work hard enough, anything can happen.”

Morrison consistently tops Powder Magazine’s Reader Poll and was acknowledged as one of “the most influential skiers of our time.”

The two-year film project aims to show that professional skiing isn’t a winter hobby, but rather a year-round pursuit of exploration and adventure.

“There’s no one who deserves this opportunity more than Seth,” says Greg Strokes, Oakley Sports Marketing Manager. "He has been dedicated to the Oakley brand for 18 years and has lead our team since day one.”

Always pushing the envelope and looking forward, Morrison is one of the few in action sports world who have remained at the forefront of their sport for almost two decades. His incredible staying power is testimony to his constant evolution as a skier. As he continuously looks ahead, it comes as no surprise that his documentary should do the same.

“For next year, we’ll be visiting a handful of locations in North America and Europe,” says CP, who filmed and directed “Show & Prove,” “The Massive” and “Believe.” “We will find answers to questions about Seth’s past, present and future.”

“The Ordinary Skier” follows Morrison to South America, Colorado, interior British Columbia, the High Sierra and Chamonix. Morrison will be joined by Oakley athletes in his travels around the globe, including Pep Fujas, Sean Pettit, JP Auclair and Sammy Carlson.

“The Ordinary Skier” will be available Fall 2011.
