Midweek Mini Movies Extra 2: Forgotten Dirt

by Dave Anderson 4

Too good to wait until next Wednesday, so here it is for your viewing pleasure…

Action Cam by Sony Presents: Dream Capture — Episode II “Forgotten Dirt”

– Matt Hunter’s search for unridden mountain bike trails in Afghanistan’s remote Wakhan Corridor.

In “Forgotten Dirt”, professional mountain biker Matt Hunter and a small team of riders travelled to the remote Wakhan
Corridor in Afghanistan to explore trails that had never been ridden before. But as it turns out, the journey to
reach those trails was the real adventure.

To capture “Forgotten Dirt”, the Anthill Films crew had to travel up to twelve hours a day by bike with camera gear
on their backs. This, combined with the remoteness of the trails, meant that the crew could not rely on traditional
camera equipment. The compact and lightweight nature of Sony’s Action Cam, allowed the crew to document
Matt’s Afghan expedition as it actually happened.

And remember: Keep feeling fascination, yeah?
