Torched is a short conceptual Freeskiing and Snowboarding film exposing the wonders of the winter nights in Wallis, Switzerland. Using rescue flares to lighten the darkness, the riders appear as sparks to reveal an ephemeral world of shadows.

Riders: Nicolas Vuignier, Greg Tuscher, Sammy Carlson, Mathieu Schaer, Aurel Anthamatten

Torched was part of  The National Geographic Short Film Showcase and was presented as “video of the day” on The National Geographic’s website and Facebook page.
