I’m a big fan of the crew at Misfit Pictures and the last movie they made – Manufacturing Stoke. It opened my eyes to the DIY community in surfing and inspired me to get out in the ocean, and I bet it will do the same for you.
There next project is just getting started - called What the Sea Gives Me - and you have the chance to be a part of it. There is a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the movie – and get awesome goodies – but first more about the film:
- It will be a feature-lengthdocumentary comprised of intimate and candid interviews with some of the ocean’s most extraordinary ambassadors.
- We will give you an honest and personal look through the eyes of those who thrive under the most extreme water conditions, those ensuring the proper care of the oceans for future generations and those who simply derive a sense of pure joy from the sea.
- The goal is to raise ocean awareness on a global level while reminding the viewer how closely we are all connected to the sea; and, to introduce you to a unique group of people we find absolutely captivating.
It looks to be an amazing movie and I hope you become a part of it.
The California Surf Museum is proud to highlight surf film-making in its non-traditional approach. Our final Big Wednesday film night will feature two 20 minute segments of the latest and greatest Korduroy.TV clips, Q&A with the filmmakers and staff, and interesting props and cameras from the Korduroy crew. Learn about their recent Kick-starter campaign, their company ethos, and how they are pushing surf content in a new direction.
With the advent of iPhones, cheap HD cameras, and the GoPro, a whole legion of film-makers have entered the scene. Combine their work with the long-established tradition of independent film-making in the surf world and you have a new golden age of the surf film.
Korduroy.TV is at the epicenter of this movement and growing fast. This should be the highlight of the Big Wednesday screening series.
The time has come. We’re finally giving female surfers the love they deserve in a brand-new, all-girls magazine, SALTED. The mag, created by the editors of SURFER Magazine, features the best female surfers on the planet, trips to the most idyllic locales, profiles, interviews, history, fashion features, and more. It’s is a much-overdue homage to women’s surfing, all made with the quality, authenticity, and top-notch imagery you’ve come to expect from SURFER.
Hitting newsstands August 14, SALTED is nearly 100 pages of uninterrupted female surf content in an oversized, glossy format. Find it at your local surf shop or bookstore. The digital version will also be available on the Apple Newsstand beginning August 6.
NBC Sports and Adobe Systems have teamed up to give fans two apps that stream the Olympics live on mobile devices, record footage for playback, and share the experience through social media.
The apps — a live-streaming app for the more than 3,500 hours of content, and a companion app loaded with additional content launched today. The apps are now available for the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch via Apple’s App Store, and select Android handset and tablet devices within Google Play. (For Apple users, the apps seems a bit hard to find in iTunes. Get them here and here).
The NBC Olympics Live Extra app features the streaming of all 32 athletic competitions and the awarding of all 302 medals, while the NBC Olympics app provides content like interviews, news stories, highlight videos and live results, according to a joint press release from NBC and Adobe. (It may be confusing because the “Extra” app is actually the live streaming app, while the one with the extras is call the “NBC Olympics” app.)
Can’t wait two more weeks until the final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy hits theaters?
You’re in luck. Warner Bros. has released a 13-minute extended sneak-peek for The Dark Knight Rises, featuring interviews with the cast, a behind the scenes look at the movie-making process and scenes from the flick set to hit theaters July 20.
“Chris [Nolan] was able to amp up the stakes for this last movie,” says Dark Knight star Anne Hathaway, “and really take it to places that I don’t think anyone’s expecting.”
