Fashion photographer, Jacob Sutton, took to the slopes of Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France to shoot this visually stunning short. The film stars Artec pro snowboarder, William Hughes, in L.E.D. covered suit made by designer John Spatcher. Sutton says the reason of why he made this film was because “I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness”. He spent three nights with an Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C in order to shoot this film of Hughes carving through the powder.
At first sight, I thought this was just a normal snowboarding short with the color inverted, but it really is a man boarding through the night covered in little lights. Its pretty amazing. The only thing is, how the hell did he see where he was going?!
