NORTH premiered recently at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival. It was received well by the audience who obviously appreciated a locally made bike film. It ended up wining the bronze award in the Steve Peat best bike films category. Now that the festival has finished, here is the full film to watch online.
North is an artistically shot mountain bike film by Tom Richards/Furnival Media, in collaboration with Override Cycleworks. From classic cross country riding in the Peak District to downhill in the famous Wharncliffe Woods, North explores the diverse range of riding in and around Sheffield. Whilst primarily being a mountain bike film, North also exposes the audience to the incredible landscape that lies on the doorstep of the city.
Filmed over a period of 3 months in between work and bad weather, North is my first longer length film. The combination of the cinematography, sound and music will take you on a journey through some of the best riding spots around Sheffield, leaving you longing to get out on your bike and explore.
