* 220 ft of 5mm Hella Phat Cool Neon wire > http://bit.ly/1sWHjPe
* a DAC330 driver > http://bit.ly/1CCt83Z
* and extensions and connectors > http://bit.ly/1yQnE4f

Daniel from Blue Media tells us “These pictures show the orange as yellow, but in real life it nails it.”

We love the sign Daniel, thanks for sending the photos.

Screen Shot 2014-12-27 at 9.17.20 AMIt is such a delight to be able to share what was a top secret project. Ariana Grande and Little Big Town were the hit of the Country Music Awards ceremony with their fabulous outfits we made for them using our double density RGB LED light roll, by none other than Cool Neon’s own, Benny James! We are pretty excited!

And here is a video!

The costumes got a lot of press. We especially like the Billboard mention, click HERE to see it, and they even mention Katy Perry’s costume, which was also made right here in our workroom.  E! Online also gave the costumes a shout out and also referenced Katy’s costume, click HERE to read it.

It has been an exciting year and we love sharing it with you.

OMG! You have to watch the video below shot with the two LED Light Suits we custom made for the film!  It might be one of the most beautiful videos we have ever seen!

AFTERGLOW – Lightsuit Segment from Sweetgrass Productions on Vimeo.

Watch the full 12 minute film Oct 19: www.philips.com/ambilight

Presented by Philips TV and Atomic Skis
Featuring: Pep Fujas, Eric Hjorleifson, Daron Rahlves, and Chris Benchetler

From the depth of the creative visuals to the groundbreaking, never-been-done-before scale of the shoot, Afterglow is being hailed as one of the most cinematically profound ski movies ever made. Deep pillows and Alaskan spines, all filmed at night, with massive lights, custom made LED suits, and a national governments worth of logistics, planning, and civil engineering.

Filmed as a partnership between Sweetgrass Productions, Philips TV, and the Swedish Agency Ahlstrand & Wållgren, it’s two parts creativity, one part branded content, and a pinch of masochism for good measure. Overall, it’s an incredibly unique partnership between our vision of skiing and the color and light technology behind the Philips Ambilight TV.

Supported by: Atomic, Freefly Systems (MOVI), NiteRider, Golden Alpine Holidays, Alyeska Resort & Talvista Lodge.

Shot on location at: Golden Alpine Holidays Sentry Lodge, Alyeska Resort, and the Alaskan Wilderness
