I was lucky enough to get my hands on an advanced copy of Spencer Norris latest release HI LIGHT! All I can say is that the film is simply amazing. If you can get out to a premier DO IT! Buy a copy for yourself and your best friend. The Cinematography in the film is leaps and bounds above what you get in you "average" wake film. Spencer's eye for angles and new shots is incredible.

As for the level of riding, all I can say is WOW! This is crew has been riding and filming with Spencer for his last 2 films (The Arrival and One Eye Shut) its awesome to see where the crew has come and where their level of riding is now. Stand out Performances from every rider in the Movie. Robby Carters riding is AMAZING as always, his Batwing Blind Threes are on LOCK, he blast off giant moves! Bryon Hutton can spin so well itís shocking I think he has every 7 variation, he will land the first wake-to-wake ten. Alex Scagliotti is way to under rated, he makes front Mobe 5's (Slim 5) look simple so smooth. Jeff HOUSE, OMG! He is becoming a switch master back to back everything and the beating he takes in the crash section is wild, he really pays his dues to make his riding look effortless. Jimmy Trask, Thomas Olson, and Derek Grasman are riding so well I was awe struck. And Of Course JD Webb's section is full of Hammers. Hands down the best wake film I have seen in a long while. GOOD JOB SPENCER!!!!!

Here is the Trailer:

Nick Jones' Heel Back Off 5 was so sick that I felt like I was the man.... just from watching it.

Word. Can't wait to see it.

The best thing about tall-spence's movies is his personal passion to the sport. Obviously, he isn't making a movie just to do it, he spends a ton of time (his life) into each film and pours his heart and soul into each split second of the movie.

Nintzel's review pretty much nailed it, but I want to add Nick Jones section in the mix, Killed it!! Nick filmed for "One Eye Shut" by getting to the dock on crutches, he was healthy for the first time in 2 years for this film and definitely made it right. Rob C, Jeff house, JD and all the guys step up for Spencer for this film. Be sure to check out the friends section for riding from Kyle Alberts, Rathy, Andrew A. and others.

Some pic's from the Permier at Evo's last weekend, good times and free micro brew Free swag from Slingshot, O'Brian, Northwest Riders clothing, Evo and others. Good to talk with Zack & Greg from Northwest Riders. Nice work Spencer, awesome film.

In from Orlando, Mr. Jones was in the house

Hey everyone. Thank you Andy for the post I am stoked that you like the video so much. Through out the year and a half of filming and being poor I had so much support through the riders and family, I couldnt have done it without them. The whole time I was in Florida Derek gave be a place to stay and Zane gave us a place to ride. There is just to much to mention because when your on a extremely tight budget all you can really rely on is the support you get from everyone around you. So thank you to everyone for the support and let me know if you are interested in getting your hands on a video

I'm in the fifth photo yay! haha... BTW There will be another showing up at Bow Lake, Wa following the Nick Jones wakeboard clinic that is being held on Friday the 28th. There will be a keg for those of age, and possible Sloshball game following the video.

Spencer always puts out a good effort with his films. He is passionate and has a vision, two good qualities to putting together a good film. Good luck with your film, I know you worked hard, I cant wait to see the whole thing.

I have been telling everyone that. This Video is Simply Amazing.

I'm still trying to digest some of what's going on in the video. It moves so fast I had to rewind it at least 10 times to figure out what I had just seen. In House's section alone there is the bs 180 double grab (with no handle) and then derek hands him one of the 2 handles he's holding (they both ride away)... not to mention the w2w bs 7...
Old     (andy_nintzel)      Join Date: Sep 2004 Location: Minnesnowda       05-01-2009, 7:07 AM Reply   

then house does a swithc w2w bs 7. AMAZING. I am sorry but I am sick of seeing the same 10 dudes in videos. That's what I love about Spencers Videos, he shows you some talent that you may have never heard of that rip super hard. I mean b.hutton is insane! That kid spins like a ton. Flat spin heel nines w2w! WTF!

Wow, quick shipping. I just ordered it Tuesday, got it Friday. Just watched it for the first time. I love it! Awesome cinematography. Plus I think it shows a lot of things that people love about the sport. There is more that goes on than just hitting the wake. Boats, docks, wildlife, gas cans. Messing around, road trips, boat ramps etc. Awesome work. This one is worth watching over and over again!

Spencer - Andrew and I sat down and watched all 3 in a row when he was home sick. Hi Light is flat out Awesome. Robby is great!!!!
The filming is the best I have seen out of any wakeboard vid period.

Maybe its because not only are you a great artist but a great rider as well.

Great job.
