Filmmakers lit up the world of extreme sports this week with footage of a pro snowboarder in an LED light suit, gliding through snow in the dead of night.

Fashion photographer and director Jacob Sutton took to the slopes of Tignes in south-eastern France with snowboarder William Hughes to create this dazzling piece of art, Nowness reports.

A $58k (£37k) RED Epic camera was used for the shoot, which handles 120fps at 14Mp resolutions. The sole source of lighting was the LED suit, created in roughly 300 hours by designer John Spatcher.

“I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness. 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,” said Sutton.

Check out the footage in all its glory below.

For further details, there's an interview with the director on the Nowness Facecrack page. ®
