Night Fury – A Short Film

Nick Brown and Connor Harding join up with Jacob Koia in a battle against the elements and evil.

The Evil snow phantom has lured them in with his back country traps, built to excite the three riders and take their mind off the ever present danger.

About Night Fury:

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. 

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.
