Is the house of 1817 a real place?
It is/was a real place. it was less of a house and more of a 2 bedroom attic apartment that Dan Nicholas moved into and then John Hodge and Joe Sexton moved into our closet and pantry. It has evolved into just a crew of friends and like minded individuals.
Why did you guys decide to make a full length movie?
Hodge brought the idea up and everyone that heard it said it was a good idea. plus all of our homies rip so it’s kinda self explanatory after that. and tons of people were down with the idea so here we are.
What can we expect, will it be mostly footage shot around MN?
A lot of it, yeah. There is no such thing as a budget and we would just get out filming when we can so it’s a lot of local stuff.
You work with some heavy hitters, will guys like Jonas, who were filming for other movies as well, have full parts?
To be honest I don’t know if anyone will have a full part. haha. It will be one big montage.
Who killed it the hardest the season?
Sam Fenton and Cody Beiersdorf
Which of the Michelot brothers has more game?
That’s a tough one. On the basketball court I’d have to say Jonas just because I’ve never played Jordan. With the ladies I’ll say Jordan just to boost his ego. You can do it buddy! haha.
What are you guys doing this summer?
Skating. editing. A bunch of guys went out to Hood. they’re all having fun, traveling, and I’m being an adult and working 40 hr/wk.
Which other videos are you most excited for this fall?
MAKEFRIENDS – google it. VG. those guys are buddies and there is a lot of talent in that video. I’m really looking forward to the People video because Pierre always produces good shit, I’m really excited for Joe’s part in it too. I’m excited for all of them. I just like watching snowboard videos. all the free online ones I’m hyped on too.
What do you think makes a snowboard movie good?
Filming/editing set up?
When will the video drop and where can people see it?
Video will have a world wide web world premier on Halloween 2010. You can watch it at www.houseof1817.blogspot.com and I’m sure it will pop up a few other places.
