Jacob Sutton's simply gorgeous video captures pro snowboarder William Hughes on a night run in the French Alps -- in an LED-encrusted snowsuit. The suit was specially designed by John Spatcher for the shoot. “I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” Sutton tells Nowness, the culture blog that produced the video, in a post on their site. “I've always been excited by unusual ways of lighting things, so it seemed like an exciting idea to make the subject of the film the only light source.”

Thanks to Alan Taylor for the video.
