Described as the new benchmark of outdoor filmmaking, "UnReal" showcases a progressive combination of athletic ability, creativity and awe-inspiring cinematography. To film a portion of the movie's footage, TGR provided its deep production experience and a $750,000 gimbal-stabilized camera system, known as the GSS 520. Because of TGR's skiing-oriented background, pairing this system with Anthill's experience in mountain bike film production and working with cyclists forged a partnership where creativity could flourish and be captured perfectly.

"Despite our decades of producing action sports films, we have no history in creating mountain bike projects as in-depth as UnReal," says co-founder of TGR, Steve Jones. "Working with a group like Anthill, who is known for leading the charge in mountain bike films, provided such a unique opportunity for all involved – not only in terms of creative thinking, but in our collective ability to fully develop every story and to properly execute each piece of production."

The online event brings the film to a broader world audience and will include a Trek Remedy 9.8 mountain bike giveaway. "UnReal" is available for purchase on DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download through online retailers Tetongravity.com, Amazon.com, Backcountry.com, Pinkbike.com, iTunes and Google Play.

"UnReal" was co-produced by Teton Gravity Research and Anthill Films, and was written, directed, and edited by Anthill Films. Art direction and additional writing were provided by Good Fortune Collective. The film is presented by Sony in association with Shimano and Trek. Additional support for the film comes from Bike Magazine, Evoc, Knolly, Pinkbike.com, Rocky Mountain, Western Digital, and Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
