Great story with gnarly surfing and amazing cinematography. Carpe diem.
From YouTube: On August 27, 2011, the Billabong Pro Tahiti event on surfing’s World Tour was placed on hold due to a massive swell bearing down on the famed big-wave spot, Teahupoo. With forecasts calling for unprecedented surf, some of the greatest surfers in the world descended on the island to be in the water, despite a “Code Red” called by the Tahitian Coast Guard, which sought to keep everyone on shore. See the historic day through the eyes of two surfers — the young gun Laurie Towner and the veteran Dylan Longbottom — as they catch some of the biggest, most dangerous surf ever recorded, much of it captured with the super slow motion Phantom Camera for never-before-seen imagery.
The concept for this video series is so simple, but the execution is fantastic! Trust me, once you watch one, you’ll end up watching them all:
My friends over at Mint Films released their teaser for Year-Round Metal Enjoyment:
From Vimeo: A documentary about New England, vandalism, and an obsession with trains. Year-round Metal Enjoyment follows several freight train graffiti artists into a world of steel and spray while exploring the Northeast’s many ties to the railroad earth. With over a year and a half of shooting (and rising), more than a dozen interviews from some of the area’s most notorious artists, as well as railfans and workers, Mint Films gives an in-depth look into this obscure and elusive world.
Still in production.
If this doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will.
