ONEDAY in Woolacombe

We worked from 5 in the morning to 10 at night, it was an intense day! thanks so much to all the surfers who took time out and days off of work to be there and to Mat, Jack, Rob, Stu, Gordon, Joel and Steve our camera men and production team who worked so hard on the day. Thanks also to Parkins estates and Woolacombe Parish Council for their support.”

Best described as a ‘scenic surf movie’ the film is a portrait of Woolacombe bay on that day, the surfing, beach life and surrounding scenery.

This promo soundtrack and the final score is the work of Peter Bruntnell who lives up the road. “One of England’s best kept musical secrets”. says Rolling Stone! How excited are we to be working with him and his friends! The music will be recorded in one day and we will be there to film it.

Post production is under way and the DVD will be available spring 2010

    Lovely footage Rich (as exepcted). Can’t wait to see the full version.

    Were they your feet in the end credits? They’re very pretty for a man of your vintage.

    Love the taster; looking forward to the final version. I think it’s a great concept and looks like it’s really got something aesthetically, with the music and everything really coming together – nice one. (I went out at Woolacombe that evening because Combesgate looked a bit busy – now I know why!)
