Two seasons ago, Hana Beaman took filming into her own hands. Her P.S. webisodes, now numbering two-dozen, have had great success within the snowboard digital scene and she’s not stopping there. With enough footage for a full-length feature film, Hana and her friends plan on releasing a short video documenting the best shots from their adventures in snowboarding.
But it’s not all backcountry on her mind. As Olympic slopestyle creeps ever closer, the competition itch grows stronger. We caught up Hana while she enjoyed some down time in SLC before the P.S. summer session begins at Mt. Hood.
You recently finished up a season traveling and filming for the second season of P.S.. How’d it go?
This year was awesome. I got to ride with my girls Robin Van Gyn, Erin Comstock and Megan Ginter, which was really cool. We had an amazing winter up in the Northwest, not so much everywhere else, but nonetheless a super fun winter that was pretty productive. I’m super stoked on it.
What gave you the idea to start filming your own webisodes rather than head out with an already established video crew?
I just reached a point where it didn’t make sense for me to hustle all that money from my sponsors to go out and film with a video crew. What was coming out of it wasn’t satisfactory to me. I wanted more freedom and to ride with whom I wanted to ride with. I wanted to do it my way and have more control over the end product.
The web series just seemed like a better means to an end. If I can put together a full part with all the footage and give it to someone to include in their movie, that would be ideal.
