Probably one of the most breathtaking skiing films to be shot in recent years, ”Afterglow” is a short film sponsored by Philips and shot by Sweetgrass Productions. The visuals trumps your standard backcountry skiing video by adding the elements of technology and the darkness of night to create a stunning result. Production involved sewing 7,000 LEDS onto four world-class skiers’ suits and placing them in virgin snow territory in the pristine Alaskan and Canadian wilderness, and then letting them literally blaze their way through trees and over cliffs. Shot in ultra-high definition at Alyeska, AK and Golden Alpine Holidays in British Columbia, the film required “a national government’s worth of logistics, planning and civil engineering,” said co-director Nick Waggoner to WIRED.
