This sounds pretty cool and $1.99 is a good price; it will be even better when they take it beyond the US store. Check out the press release...
FORUM SNOWBOARDS RELEASES FORUM STUDIO ON THE iTUNES STORE
Forum Snowboards is pleased to announce the creation of the Forum Studio within the iTunes store.
Located within the TV Show section of the store, The Forum Studio represents the snowboarding video projects of the Forum team, in conjunction with members of Special Blend Outerwear and Foursquare Outerwear. This influential grouping produces a collection of acknowledged snowboarding films, featuring progressive action, impressive editing, and memorable soundtracks.
Currently, three titles are available for a download price of $1.99 each: That, NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST, and FYI.
"The Forum Studio is the first of its kind for a snowboard brand and this type of distribution capability and exposure is a gigantic move for us. We feel it is the perfect representation for the quality and dedication we put into our video projects," states Evan Rose, Forum Snowboards Marketing Director.
The Forum Studio is available in the United States iTunes store, with plans to expand to other regions in the near future.
That is the Forum team video release that originally appeared within the iTunes store in 2006, making Forum Snowboards the first independent content provider to have a project approved for purchase in the store. In an era marketed by an oversaturated video market, That video challenged the boundaries of what was considered normal, to show the way for generations to come.
About NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST:
Follow along as Forum and Foursquare riders explore snowboarding in four geographically distinct locations. Set to an exclusive soundtrack by Dim Mak records this is NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST, not a storm of hype, just the straightforward enjoyment of riding with your friends. It's the purity of travel, exploration, and doing the things you love.
FYI is a snowboarding mash-up of sorts, featuring the riding of the Forum team as seen in Special Blend's First Chair Last Call and Foursquare's NORTH SOUTH EAST WEST. Featuring Eddie Wall, Joni Malmi, Jake Blauvelt, Stevie Bell, Travis Kennedy, Pat Moore, Nic Sauve, and Jake Welch, FYI is sure to set the stoke for the snowboarding season.
