MWHS and Origin Outside have teamed up to deliver Mike’s story – a celebratory documentary of his lifelong dedication to the heli-skiing industry. This film features interviews from influential connections to Mike’s ski career and showcases the talent of today’s top freestyle skiers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, and Jennelle Yip, as well as pro snowboarder Austin Smith. Call Me Crazy is an official selection for the 2020 Kamloops Film Festival, accepted into the 2019 Whistler Film Festival, the 5 Point Adventure Film Festival, and the Rossland Film Festival. It received nominations for Best Storytelling at iF3 Montreal and Best Documentary at the Powder Awards. In December the film was also awarded the Vimeo Staff Pick of the Month.
