Introducing Made Back East, a natively New England ski film. A Vagrants original, in partnership with Parlor Skis and presented by Life is Good, that explores the love affair with backcountry skiing in our own backyard. The ski community refers to our home as “back east”. Assuming that anybody who grew up skiing here would eventually find their way out West. But to us, that assumes too much. The mark of a true New England skier is a deep appreciation for the bad days just as much as the good ones. As they say “if you can ski the northeast, you can ski anywhere”. In this film, we follow six diehard skiers on a trip into the woods seeking that perfect window where everything comes together.
Dustin Devlin is a semi-amphibious, bearded male hailing from the wind-brushed shores of ole Cape Cod. His early years were spent as a child model, but that lasted about as long as his bowl cut. On the streets and unable to find work, his agent told him he had a face for the edit suite. So, he moved to the city and cut his teeth with several ad agencies and production houses. Always enamored by the production process he sought out directing as a way to tend to each project from beginning to end. His loud voice, big heart, and dumb head make him a natural for the job.
