The Great Siberian Traverse
“The Great Siberian Traverse documents a 6,000-mile ski journey through Russia, along the Trans-Siberian Railway. Produced by Sherpas Cinema, in partnership with POWDER magazine and The North Face, the documentary showcases a fringe backcountry skiing community, deep Siberian powder, and skiing’s ancient origins. Skiers Ingrid Backstrom, Callum Pettit, and Nick Martini share their insights along the adventure.” – Powder Magazine
I designed the hand illustrated map of Russia, that was animated and used to follow the skiers journey through the film. I made multiple copies of the map and aged them with coffee and heat until I got the one I wanted to use! In addition I drew 2D images of the train which was then animated to move along the tracks.
