Director Jeremy Grant dug through the Esperanto archives to pick out the best shots from Emil Johansson’s groundbreaking slopestyle segment in Teton Gravity Research’s 2022 mountain bike film. Going through the archives months after a project can yield some new perspectives on a memorable shoot.
“When we filmed Esperanto over the last two years, we ended up with an insane amount of extra footage that deserved to see the light of day, but one segment in particular stood out: Emil Johansson putting 110 percent into the pursuit of perfection at La Fenasosa Bike Park.”
With so many amazing clips left on the cutting room floor, he and Director Jeremy Grant teamed up to cut an athlete cut with all the amazing clips stacked over the team’s ten days in Spain.
