WATCH: PBK1 - Painted-Black Skiing Segment

Nicolas Vuignier, the man behind the Centriphone, has just released his latest ski video that is set to take the internet by storm. 

"This is a project I've had in the back of my head for quite some time. Having seen other filmmakers experimenting with natural pigments, I knew there was room for another visually interesting experiment. In April 2015, I gathered a few riders and experienced photographers to perform this conceptual clip, in which skiers release black ochres while taking off, leaving ephemeral trails behind them as they fly." -Nicolas Vuignier
