Filmmaker Darrell Miller has been producing adrenalized mountain films in Jackson Hole since the mid-’90s. His award-winning production company, Storm Show Studios, has produced 11 feature-length films, two of which landed coveted spots on The Ski Channel’s “Top 100 Ski Films Of All Time.” His films have also received numerous “Best Of” accolades from the Powder Video Awards and the Cold Smoke Awards, and have been featured on The Ski Channel, Fox Sports Net, Resort Sports Network, Snowboard Canada Magazine, Powder Magazine, and Skiing Magazine, among others.
Local as it gets, Darrell Miller grew up in the Jackson Hole region and has spent 30+ years skiing the area’s jagged peaks amongst the pioneers of ski mountaineering. He has witnessed the sport grow from free-riding to jibbing to exposed ski-descents in the Himalayan-scale Teton Range and has been capturing it on film for the last decade.
“My filmmaking influence comes directly from the life changing experiences I’ve had in the mountains. The goal was simple: To inspire people and show them that you can accomplish what you set out to do, be it climbing and riding a mountain, or whatever personal goal you set.” — Darrell Miller
Filmmaker Ryan Halverson, 39, has shot, edited, and produced 10 full length ski films in his 16 year career. Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it was hard to fathom what existed beyond the retired landfill that built up his 200 foot ski hill. Arriving on the mountain scene of Summit County, Colorado in 2001 was a life changing experience that sparked a big mountain passion, and lifelong addiction.
So began his production company, Full Room Productions. After nine years in SuCo, Ryan sought out the beloved terrain of Jackson Hole as a more extreme backdrop for his work. Having established his credibility in Wyoming, Ryan teamed up with local filmmaker Darrell Miller and brought together a long overdue collaboration of two big mountain film producers.
