I was commission to tell a story for Shimano, a long standing company in the world of cycling. Shimano loves to give a salute to the passionate members of the cycling community, and in this case it was legendary photographer Sterling Lorence.
Colin Jones co-founded Anthill Films, renowned for its mountain biking films. Based out of Squamish, British Columbia with original members of The Collective, a group of mountain bikers, filmmakers and photographers that shoot films, ride bikes and take photographs, Antill Films finds itself at the heart of a vibrant mountain biking culture. Together with his partners, Jones has directed and produced nine feature mountain bike films like UnReal (2015), Not2Bad (2016), Return to Earth: Moments of Clarity and Return to Earth: Time Wisely Spent (both Mountainfilm 2020). CJ has also directed hundreds of short films and commercials for brands such as Toyota, Sony, Red Bull, Clif Bar, Shimano, Trek, The Olympic Channel and many more. CJ is the director of the short film This is Home: Jackson Goldstone (Mountainfilm 2022). The film follows Squamish, British Columbia’s Jackson Goldstone in his shot to mountain biking stardom after a home video goes viral.
