Amuse-bouche → hors d’oeuvre; appetizer
Over the last two years Victor Daviet has been working with Pirates Crew on their latest project, DRIVEN. With unforeseen circumstances presented by the pandemic, the Pirates Crew has decided to add another year to the project, ensuring expectations aren’t compromised and the final product is nothing short of jaw dropping.
As one might imagine, three years of filming allows for premium ‘b-roll’ footage. Amuse Bouche was created in efforts to curb the growing appetite for DRIVEN, satiating us like a fine brie and artichoke dip with Victor’s stylish approach to the backcountry and leaving us drooling for the main course.
“I spent the last 2 seasons riding part time for DRIVEN, the new Pirates Movie Production film project. Being part of the adventure was an opportunity to ride in some of the best places for deep pow—Japan, Canada, and Austria—along my snowboard heroes Gigi Ruff & John Jackson. Some amazing times on board!
The movie was supposed to be out this fall, but as with other projects, due to the pandemic the production and trips were cut short. For this reason, the Pirates decided to take one more year to deliver you something fresh and tasty as the final product. The movie will be out next year. Because 3 years is too long of a wait, and the main dish always come with an appetizer, we wanted to deliver you a powder snack with the footage that won't make to the movie: enjoy your Amuse Bouche.” – Victor Daviet
