Nico Vuignier and Jules Guarneri’s night skiing film is a visual masterpiece. It features amazing imagery which appear to be entirely lit by the orange glow of flares. It was shot without CGI, and looks like it was quite the shoot. (Thanks David!)

Bicyclists Tyler Bereman and Darryn Durham take a ride on the undulating Red Bull Straight Rhythm course in the darkness of night. We’re gonna guess that the illuminated smoke trails and starfield were enhanced in post-production, but they still look cool.
