~People by Dominic Palarchio

~ People, like my previous snowboarding films, attempts to end complacency of the genre’s conventions. While paying to snowboard at a resort can be viewed as bourgeois, street snowboarding has always been a reinterpretation of the built environment. I’m interested in taking that thought a step further by incorporating outside influences. Through careful curation we selected a majority of dilapidated post industrial locations in the rust belt cities of Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo. Visual acts of snowboarding thus can begin to represent the regrowth of these areas plagued by late-capitalism.

  Flanel Lifestyle's Mike Harrington has faithfully produced Michigan Snowboarding videos about as long as People has been a snowboard store. He's non-stop productive season after season.

Flanel "When It Happens" teaser

The Flanel Crew was back at it again, making their newest video entitled, "When It Happens." Despite dismal snow conditions and unseasonably warm temperatures, they managed to pull it together by taking advantage of the snow, when it happened.   To make a video on a year like this takes flexibility, mental agility, and above all, a little Mike Harrington. "The weather this season in Michigan was the worst it's been in 6 or 7 years, it barely snowed. We decided to not cry about it, adapt, overcome and make a movie." When It Happens (Teaser) from Flanel Lifestyles on Vimeo. Featuring Charles Beck, Tyler May, Jackie Lammert, Matt Miller, Sam Schowalter, Lucas Patrick, Eric Starke, Dusty Miller and Brett...
