The Drifter: Soul Surfer and Pipe Master Rob Machado flies to Indonesia to experience a different kind of surf trip. A journey that would take him way beyond his comfort zone to an unnamed Indonesian Ocean reef. What did he discover? You never stop dreaming. Special Live Appearance by Living Suring Legend Rob Machado. “The Drifter” was filmed using a red package camera which enables film makers to produce a traditional film quality movie without the high-costs associated with processing chemical film- based on the trailer (scroll down for the link) it should be an hour of stunning images. Also backed by Warner Brothers Records “The Drifter” should be upping the benchmark for surf films.
Dear & Yonder: Daring Stories of Ladies United by the Seas with special appearance by Breakout Filmmaker Award-winner Tiffany Campbell. The dynamic skills and personalities of this diverse cast of lady surfers shine as the film follows them from around the world to just around the corner. These women show how far women’s surfing has come but in order to find out from where, the film journeys back in time to uncover the history of women’s surfing with its famous icons and legends.
