Behind every rad shredder is an even more rad film crew.

Teton Gravity Research’s “Esperanto” looks ridiculously cool. In it, freeride MTB studs like Alma Wiggberg, Brandon Semenuk, Emil Johansson, and Chelsea Kimball take on breathtaking (yes, I dropped the b-word) high-mountain terrain in Ecuador.

Here’s a clip on how Jeremy Grant directed the crew who shot it so it looked cool, instead of like a bunch of mountain bikers doing tricks you couldn’t see through the fog.

Interested in the film? Here’s how and where you can catch “Esperanto,” which airs now through Nov. 3.

Runtime: 4 minutes
