Peepshow Vs Quebec

Here's a short film I made recently on Jess Kimura and her Peepshow pals in Quebec City. It's one of three films produced by Exit Films for Mojo. Glendyn Ivin & Garth Davis are making the other two and I'll post links to them when they are done. It was a surreal job but an exciting one to be involved in. We had 1 month to do it which included having to find the characters and locations and then shoot and edit it. I wish there were more jobs like this one.

Portland Surf Trip

I managed to steal a weekend away from the three jobs I currently have for a surf trip with the boys. It was one of those things that none of us really believed would happen but each of us said yes and in the end that's all it took, sometimes that's all it takes for things that you never thought would happen to happen.

The problem with documenting a surf trip for me is always the same, I want to surf and though very little apart from surfing and searching for surf actually happens there seems so little time to document. Looking for surf is a full time job, it's an addiction that is all consuming. In three days we drove 1200 kms looking for spots to surf, following the swell, watching the wind and searching for breaks. Once waves are found then everything happens very quickly, wetsuits pulled on, cars locked up and then you're in the water, theres no delay and so very few shots, it's an obsession.

I pulled out my iphone and took some snaps on the last day, Anzac day. You get a sense of the time waiting & watching the waters.

Crew Of Two

Kempsey - 'The Weather' Official Video from Flynn Wheeler on Vimeo.

Rhys and Tash from Daybreak Films shot this clip for Kempsey a couple of months ago. I would have loved to have gone a long to help out but I was away and in the end they didn't need any extra hands. Made with a crew of two, this is how you do a film clip!
