Embrace the Night - Clare Gallagher on the UTMB

This summer, I had the chance to meet Clare Gallagher, both great trail runner and environmentalist. The shooting was not simple. As every "headlamp shooting", you have to struggle with the lights. the environment has to be not too dark, but not too bright... In french we say entre chiens et loups (between dogs and wolves). Here is a bit of Clare's spirit, and some advices to run the famous  UTMB. Enjoy!

Kilian Jornet in the Northern Lights

A very creative project with superstar Kilian Jornet, on a tight schedule and bad weather forecast... Only two nights to get all the job done, but luckly I was with my team Bertrand Delapierre, Marc Daviet and Erwan Lelann as creative as they are efficient! The CGI and compositing has been done from MédéO, a great video production company, located in the heart of the Alps. Have a look on the final project, watch it full screen,with a good sound-system, activate the captions, grab a coffee and enjoy!

The aurora borealis experience

The aurora borealis (also known as the Northern Lights) and the aurora australis are a natural phenomenon created through the interaction between charged particles of the solar wind and the upper atmosphere. The auroras occur primarily in those regions close to the magnetic poles (source Wikipedia). You can plan for this incredible phenomenon by following the aurora forecast on websites like Aurora-service.eu.

Video - The World's Best Belayer

For Ray Verseau, climbing is only a byproduct of his true love, belaying. Verseau has taken his love of the belay and turned that passion into a profession, he is the World's Best Belayer.

Ray told us: "I never set out to be the World's Best Belayer, this was just a passion of mine. Coming home from work years ago I had this moment, where I just knew that I had to devote my life to the art of the belay. No other activity is as pure, or as fulfilling to me. I wake up each morning, begin my training routine, stretch, warm up, and then go to the gym or crag. In that moment when it is just you, your climber, the rope, and the device everything else vanishes. It's like a zen state. I am so lucky that I've found a way to dedicate my life to this purity and art."

Join him as he pursues his passion for the belay at crags around the world with many new and familiar faces.

Become the best belayer you can be
