Watch This: Sweetgrass’ Darklight Film

Agassiz, Hunter and Miles cast a new light on shredding

From Sweetgrass Productions:
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 Ahlstrandand Wållgren. Follow 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.

Here are some images from the filming of Darklight in Utah and Oregon:
