From the boredom of the backseat of his parents’ station wagon, a young skier imagines the passing front-yard snow piles and sloping roofs as suburban ski terrain. His daydream suddenly springs to life as freeskier Tom Wallisch flies over Airstreams and garbage cans, and down the steps and rails of Nelson, British Columbia, sparks flying when his skis meet pavement. Imagination is an homage to the late Canadian freeskier J.P. Auclair’s iconic street segment from the film All.I.Can. which proves with a little snow and creativity anything is possible.

From the Success of the original 5 minute film “Imagination” TNF commissioned a 30 second broadcast commercial. The original film went on to win an incredible amount of awards and honours, most notably Gold Clio awards and a Vimeo Best of the Year accolade.
