Skiing in light suits looks like the most spectacular thing
Sploid – Gizmodo, 16/19/14
Skiing? Fun. Night skiing? Even more fun. Night skiing in impossible bright light suits that transform your body into a glowing orb as you fly down the mountain? That has to be the most fun you can have. And if it’s not, it’s definitely the coolest looking way to ski down a mountain. We’ve seen similar people try to pull of this stunt but this light suit video by Sweetgrass Productions is the most visually spectacular.
From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering. Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it’s two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure. Overall, it’s an incredibly unique partnership between our vision of skiing and the color and light technology behind the Philips Ambilight TV.
