Travis Rice‘s latest blockbuster The Fourth Phase was not without its challenges. It did take almost four years to complete after all and it’s not like Travis and his Brain Farm crew were on vacation. With The Fourth Phase about to premiere on October 2nd through Red Bull TV, the media game is being played by Travis and he’s doing interviews all over the place.

The process of capturing a single shot. Was the underlaying challenge behind the whole movie to create an immersive experience.

Travis goes into more detail in this interview he did with OnBoard above and also had a great sit down with VICE sports including these words to live by, “Never leave a good time to have a good time.”

 

When it’s all said and done, you’re going to go down as one of the best. Who’s on your list of greats?

If I had to make a short list, especially from early on, Brodie Dowell, Lance Pitman, Bryan Iguchi, Ingemar Backman, Terje Haakonsen, Jamie Lynn, and Nicolas Muller would be right there with it. I mean, Craig Kelly laid down such a solid foundation. Having grown up in Jackson Hole, he was little outside my bandwidth, but I don’t think that I would be doing what I do or doing it the way I do if it weren’t for Craig and how he exercised his creative expression through snowboarding.

You’ve been all over the world. Where’s your favorite snowboarding destination?

My favorite place is where the conditions are as good as it gets and you’re with a solid crew, that’s it. I’ve had shit trips to the best locations on the planet and I’ve had incredible trips to some of the worst places. Like surfing, it’s so dependent on conditions. I mean, you can be at the best break in the world and it can be just dog shit.
