Felt Soul Media teamed up with Nick Waggoner and Yuki Miyazaki of Sweetgrass Productions in January 2012 to hunt the mythical Hokkaido Unicorn – the creature proved difficult to capture on film, so we just decided to do a little skiing.
For me this edit is incredible – the filming, the snow, the skiers – all mixed together really just sucks you in and forces you to dream about heading to Japan ASAP.

Here’s what Ben Knight had to say to Adventure Journal - check out that interview as well, some really great content in there.
After six years of saving and paying ourselves a pitiful wage, we had just bought our dream camera, the RED Epic. Japan seemed like the absolute best possible way to test our shiny new pride and joy. The only problem was the fact that we typically make films about fish, fishing, and or fish. Making ski porn gets you off the hook for a meaningful narrative, but it didn’t take long to get our asses humbled. Filming skiing well is incredibly difficult, turns out. It didn’t help that we were filming a single geologist from Boulder, a gay personal chef from Aspen, and ourselves…two guys who make fishing films.
