Burton presents Night Fury: A fictional snowboard film

It takes considerable time, energy and patience to film a backcountry snowboard film, but producing it at night is completely another matter. Burton riders Nick Brown and Connor Harding, alongside Jacob Koia from Red Bull illuminated the powder pillows and drops of Japan to record Night Fury, a fictional snowboard film revolving around an unknown terror lurking in the shelter of darkness. The snowboarding is on point, the cinematography calculated and the concept refreshing. Few snowboard films are like this and it’s great to see something different.

From Heat’s Vimeo:

Night Fury is a fictional snowboard short film, shot almost entirely at night, in Japan’s Niseko Back country.

Burton’s Nick Brown and Connor Harding join up with Red Bull rider 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.
