“The lights haven’t gone out yet!”

From the company that brought you the incredible short-films; Afterglow, Jumbo Wild, and Valhalla – Sweetgrass Productions are back yet again with another cinematic masterpiece. This time it’s a unique view of mountain biking that you’ve never seen before, and also, it’s available in the beautiful resolution of 4K.


Tackling the terrain.

3 professional mountain bikers; Graham Agassiz, Matt Hunter, and Matty Miles worked with the Sweetgrass crew, Ahlstrand and Wållgren, and also Philips TV, in the strangely-satisfying Ewok Forests of the Pacific Northwest all the way to the other-worldly looking landscape of Southern Utah. Over the course of 3 exciting yet tiring weeks, during midnight hours, and a crew of 27, the project was supported by Philips TV as an ambitious campaign to promote the new Philips Ambilight TV – Powered by Android ™. The DARKLIGHT project was supported by Bike Magazine, CLIF Bar, and Freefly Systems, associated with Specialized and the TomTom Bandit ActionCam, and presented by the Philips Ambilight TV.

Watch the action here:

Sweetgrass Productions are “A small team capable of big things” with a crew consisting of (Director) Nick Waggoner, (Producer) Zac Ramras, and (Director) Mike Brown. The company has worked with some interesting brands such as [Patagonia, Philips, and Specialized, to name a few], with creative visions to achieve some pretty spectacular results.


Gnarly Table and such a sweet shot!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content
    seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with
    browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos Hi, i read your
    blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help
    is very much appreciated. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours
    these days, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made just
    right content material as you did, the net will be a lot more helpful than ever

      Hi Jack,

      Thanks for the comment and support!

      All looks fine my side, are you on Mobile or PC?

      I used to get a lot of spam but it stopped while the site went inactive, now I’m rebuilding content I’m receiving a couple more spam comments a day unfortunately, but it happens.
      Do you use WordPress? I have “Akismet Anti-Spam” set-up and it does the job pretty well I’d say. Plus having to approve/disapprove comments before being displayed helps keep that down a little.
