The Weatherman encompasses eastern Canada’s classic urban-infused park style that we love with west coast cabin vibes. The film quality and storyline of this production is top notch, always stoked to see what The Loners
MEET THE CREW
Meet Nick & Jules, two hermits hiding in a shack somewhere in the Laurentian Mountains. A simple outsider lifestyle to the rhythm of the weather reports.
Nick Gosselin, an 18 years old skier from Val-David, Quebec. Nick aka Rodrigo grew up in the Laurentides region in Québec and has been skiing for 7 years. In his home mountain, Mount Avila, is known for going huge on his switch 540.
Jules-G. Germain, 20 years old snowboarder from Clermont, Quebec. Jules started snowboarding in the hills surrounding his cottage in Saint-Hippolyte. After focusing on learning tricks in the snowpark, he started exploring the backcountry on the east coast two years ago and took part in several film projects in the Chic-Choc Mountains and elsewhere with The Loners. He’s know for doing crazy inverts and for his backflip-on to 360 out of a rail back in 2016.

FILMING THE WEATHERMAN
Filmer Émile Dontigny tells of his inspiration behind this cinematic masterpiece. “For this film, the idea was to produce something strange and catchy. I always had a liking for dreamy-fantastic stories about people and mountains. One night, we were at Jules’ cottage looking for a way to listen to a hockey game and he brought this old Lloyd’s Radio out of nowhere. It was love at first sight. I immediately got the idea and then we built the story instinctively in a few minutes following the find. We also knew about an old cabin in the mountains not too far away from our homes that would be the perfect fit for this story. It took us about a week to film and edit the whole thing and we’re pretty stoked about it. I hope the film will spark the imagination of those watching. We have a bunch of other weird ideas for our future projects so stay tuned!”
