AFTERGLOW - Lightsuit Segment

Sat, 10/18/2014 - 6:03pm

Watch the full 12 minute film Oct 19:

Presented by Philips TV and Atomic Skis
Featuring: Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Daron Rahlves, and Chris Benchetler

From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it's two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure. Overall, it's an incredibly unique partnership between our vision of skiing and the color and light technology behind the Philips Ambilight TV.

Supported by: Atomic, Freefly Systems (MOVI), NiteRider, Golden Alpine Holidays, Alyeska Resort & Talvista Lodge.

Shot on location at: Golden Alpine Holidays Sentry Lodge, Alyeska Resort, and the Alaskan Wilderness

Elstree Studios Visit 2007

Wed, 10/15/2014 - 8:26pm

Back in 2007 I was lucky enough to make the acquaintance of a big film prop collector. He contacted me whilst I was making Returning to Jedi. He wrote to me saying he had Luke's lighsaber, the one Skywalker builds in the cave on Tatooine in the deleted scene from the beginning of Return of the Jedi.

I was of course dubious, having never seen this scene. Only stills existed then. But after I saw the prop for myself, I must say I was sold. I think I may have been a bit giddy from touching a 'real' lightsaber.

The aforementioned collector invited me to visit Elstree Studios with him to check out some props that were being built for him. I believe it was an R2. Below a video we took of our visit.
