Behind the Seen

I would prefer to keep the exact location secret but my photographer friend Shepo and I recently visited a relatively unknown island in the South Pacific, and we wanted to do something a bit different than our normal surf/image/story paradigm.

We wanted to show what happens beneath the waves while we surfers are so busy obsessing only about what is happening on the surface. We also wanted to make the photographer part of the story. Typically all you see is pictures or video of athletes, but never shots that show you how the shots were created. So we decided to take the viewer Behind the Seen by making the photographer part of the story. We enlisted the help of visiting surfer and aspiring filmmaker Francesco Campello (from Italy), and this is what resulted – our first attempt at a video edit.
