Night Fury project is a fictional snowboard film shot entirely at night in the Niseko Backcountry sponsored by Burton, Redbull, Syrp, Rhythm Snowboard shop and directed by Heath Patterson.
About Behind the Scenes Episode 1:
In February 2014 we headed with a small crew to Niseko, Japan for a snow project with a twist. Snowboarders Nick Brown, Jake Koia and Connor Harding were all on board and after arriving in Tokyo we headed North to Sapporo to stock up on supplies. What supplies you ask? Well, namely a toboggan and a ladder but we got some other stuff too.
Our plan was to film the entire 3 week project at night using generators and 10 massive lights, fair to say that it wasn’t an easy task and there were some hairy moments out there. The film will launch on the 21st of June on Vimeo, in the mean time get involved with the build-up by tuning in for the up-coming Behind the Scenes episodes!
