Not much really needs to be said here. Not only does this trailer feature some insane riding but the whole thing was filmed at night with a crew of 27 people! Check the description below for all the details but first do yourself a favor, turn out the light, draw your curtains or go hide in a closet and watch this clip NOW.
Sweetgrass Productions’ DARKLIGHT
Starring: Graham Agassiz, Matt Hunter, and Matty Miles
The lights haven’t gone out yet! Sweetgrass Productions is back with Darklight, a film that takes viewers back into a world of light and color. Supported by innovative television manufacturer Philips TV, this is the third collaboration between the soulful filmmakers at Sweetgrass Productions and Swedish creative house Ahlstrand and Wållgren. Follow professional mountain bikers Graham Agassiz, Matt Hunter, and Matty Miles on a mind-bending night ride through the moonscapes of Southern Utah to the Ewok forests of the Pacific Northwest.
A physically and mentally demanding production, this piece was shot during the midnight hours over three intense weeks. With a scrappy and determined crew of 27, thousands of pounds of camera and lighting gear was slogged, rigged, soldered, hung and broken down each night. Unlike anything ever seen before in the world of mountain biking, Darklight features arrestingly beautiful landscapes and world class riding.
An evolution of its predecessors, Darklight continues to push the creative bounds of action sports cinema.
Full film releasing October 2015!
