Imagine how surreal it must be to go snowboarding at night and become the only source of light as you carve turns in fresh powder.
Pro snowboarder William Hughes is the "silver surfer" in the accompanying production by filmmaker Jacob Sutton, who intended to show "a lone character made of light surfing through darkness."
Sutton achieved his goal, in a production for Nowness, by fitting Hughes in a specially-designed L.E.D-enveloped suit for four nights of filming in the Tignes in the Rhône-Alpes region of southeastern France.
Said Hughes of the bizarre experience: "Filming in the suit was the most surreal thing I’ve done in 20 years of snowboarding. Luckily there was plenty of vin rouge to keep me warm, and Jacob’s enthusiasm kept everyone going through the cold nights."
