Video Friday – 4/8/2011

This week’s edition of Video Friday takes on a bit of a somber tone as the filmmaker behind one of last week’s highest rated videos, Renan Ozturk, was involved in a serious ski accident near Jackson Hole last weekend.  Ozturk suffered a skull fracture, a collapsed lung and two broken vertebra.  Luckily it sounds like he’ll be ok although he is looking at a prolonged recovery period.  Best of luck to him during his recovery!

Unforutnately, Ozturk’s fellow Camp 4 Collective colleague Jimmy Chin, who was first on the scene after Ozturk’s accident, was also involved in an accident in the Jackson Hole area just a couple of days later.  Chin was caught in an avalanche but somehow escaped without major injury.  Ironically, one thing that helped Chin was a helmet, something he had never worn while skiing but was compelled to buy after Ozturk’s accident.

Ozturk and Chin’s friend and fellow Camp 4 Collective colleague Tim Kemple has a good post up on his blog reflecting on this whole situation.

And now for this week’s highest rated videos.  Remember that you can see all the videos for the week here, and be sure to keep voting for your favorites.  Have a fun and safe weekend everyone.
