Es gibt viele Videos mit LED-Surfbrettern, aber keins kann dieser Wintersportvariante das Wasser reichen: Profi-Snowboarder William Hughes im maßgeschneiderten LED-Anzug bei Nacht in den französischen Alpen gefilmt von Jacob Sutton.
"I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness," says Sutton of his costume choice. "I've always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source." Sutton ... spent three nights on a skidoo with his trusty Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C to snap Hughes carving effortlessly through the deep snow, even enlisting his own father to help maintain the temperamental suit throughout the demanding shoot. "Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I've done in 20 years of snowboarding," says Hughes of the charged salopettes. "Luckily there was plenty of vin rouge to keep me warm, and Jacob's enthusiasm kept everyone going through the cold nights."
