Slide down the hill at breakneck speed, feel how the wind elastic strikes in the face… For one such picture – treasured dream, for others – a nightmare, and the third have made stupefying races by style of life. Snowboarder William Hughes definitely concerns the last.
Hughes and his suit were literally lighted in a short videoclip of the photographer and director Jacob Sutton. Jacob – the professional so it not to get used to work in hard weather conditions. But here to spend three nights on end in the Alpes on a ski track at temperature in-13, to shoot video for less than two minutes can person only truly devoted to art.
The video, shot with two cameras Red Epic focused on light-emitting figure of Hughes, who for 1.45 glides over the snow on a snowboard, cutting through the pitch darkness. “I was always enthralled all sorts of strange glowing gizmos – says filmmaker Jacob Sutton – so the idea of ??creating a film whose main character was a light that seemed to me extremely attractive.”
As to “protagonist” this suit for the snowboarding, decorated in hundreds light-emitting diodes, has been developed by the expert in the field of electronics John Spatcher. Completely to finish work on equipment to it it was required more than three hundred hours.
William Hughes remained extremely happy with brand new extravagant equipment, and also process of shootings: “To go for a drive, being from feet to a head covered with bulbs is most surreal of all that I tried in snowboarding for twenty years. It is good that we had enough red wine to be warmed, and Jacob’s enthusiasm has allowed to hold on the whole three nights”.
