The Art of Flight is a Red Bull sponsored documentary film about snowboarding and a successor to That's It, That's All. Directed by Curt Morgan, it premiered in New York City on September 8, 2011, at the Beacon Theatre.



The Art of Flight was shot over the course of two years from 2009 to 2011.

It was filmed using the RED camera system, the GoPro Hero, Vision Research's Phantom Gold high speed camera, Panasonic Varicam HPX3700, Arri 235 (4 perf 35mm), Cineflex HD (Sony HDC-1500) and Nikon and Canon SLRs for time lapses.[citation needed]



Slant Magazine said, "even at 80 minutes, The Art of Flight feels severely empty, an aesthetic showcase whose repetitive nature winds up diminishing the excitement of its breathtaking feats of mountainous flight."[1]

Alternate version[edit]

The 3D version, "The Art of FLIGHT 3D", premiered at the San Sebastián Film Festival in Spain on September 28, 2012.


The Art of Flight soundtrack features songs by: The Naked and Famous, M83, Deadmau5, Sigur Rós, and others.[2]
