Over the past year, Anthill Films and Teton Gravity Research (TGR) have partnered to create a seriously unique action sports video, unReal. Wildly imaginative and inspiring for any outdoor enthusiast or filmmaker, the closing segment shows how ingenuity and hard work can yield greatness.
This segment, “Dirt Blizzard”, is the ultimate skier’s dream—a powder day—in mountain-biking terms. Dirt falls from the sky like powder snow, while ecstatic riders play across a magical landscape. For riders Thomas Vanderham, Matty Miles, Ian Morrison, and Finn Iles, the Dirt Blizzard was something that they once could only dream about… until now. The filming of Dirt Blizzard can be described as a true climax in the history of action-sports cinematography. UnReal is being called the ultimate conjunction of athletic prowess and jaw-dropping cinematography, and no segment of the film highlights this better than this visual feast at the film’s end.
