Full Moon – Night Skiing Without Artificial Light

No lights, just the power of the full moon, a short video that shows us the beauty of the mountains, nature and skiing.

Night skiing without artificial light: Closing lift stations and the setting sun mark the end of the action for most skiers. Not for Max Kroneck and Jochen Mesle. While ski towns fall asleep they head into the mountains and see them awaking in a new light. The snow starts glistening again. It ́s just the sound of their skis turning in fresh snow that breaks the silence of the full moon night.

“Some of you might have been on a full moon ski tour before. It ́s a really special vibe which is hard to describe when you haven ́t experienced it by yourself. With this movie we wanted to capture that feeling of being out there skiing in a clear full moon night. There is not much that distracts you from the pure beauty of the mountains.” – Jochen Mesle

Of course backcountry skiing at night is a challenge, but to shoot it without any artificial light at all was a different story. The team spent nine intense nights shooting and ski touring in the Austrian alps in winter 2019 to create this film.

Itinerology : The Spirit Of Odyssey

Trans-Provence was a pioneer event in rally-style point-to-point MTB racing. When it bowed out at the top of its game in June 2019 , many wondered why. This the 4th and final Episode of Itinerology explores the notion that a pioneering mountain biking event can have the primary function of carrying a message about the sport, and that the event might then one day reach a point of fulfilment of purpose. In this case, the race doesn’t need to go on forever – it doesn’t matter, the trails are still there and we should keep riding them.

The Postman

Beautifully shot, look at the last postman of Rhenigidale and the history of the small island town.

Clinging to the frayed edges of the ragged shores of the Isle of Harris, a singletrack path navigates its way above cliffs, around bays. Three friends make the trip to not only ride the Postman’s Path to Rhenigidale, but find out more about its history.

Until a road to the village opened in 1990, the path was the only overland link between Rhinigidale and the outside world. Kenny Mackay – the last postman to walk the track shares his stories – tales of community, survival and love.

They leave with a deeper understanding that this trail goes beyond being a simple physical connection between two places. It symbolises the emotional and practical ties to the landscapes humans call home. 

Christique: Bait, a film about boats and stuff

Chris Jones, our designer, says you should do everything in your power to go see this film.

Bait is a film about boats and stuff, from what we gather.

Here’s Chris’s review:

“What’s on? I’ll tell you what’s on… this film, that’s what’s on. A hypnotically strange scratchy 16mm modern masterpiece about the tensions between locals and tourists in a once-thriving Cornish fishing village. What’s not to like? Proper job.”

Very insightful. Let us know if you’ve managed to get a look at it.
