BALANCE is a female-powered surf film about the ocean, life and time. All these things blended together teach us how to balance.
In March 2020 I went home to Australia and decided to sink my teeth into creating a surf film with a difference. Collaborating with Dutch poet Judy Williams. I went on to craft a narrative that would see the ocean through the eyes of 5 female surfers. After one day of shooting, we got 80% of the film in the can. But, then the Melbourne lockdown really started to set in. Unable to get the last shots to complete the final film I've been experimenting with teasers of each of our surfers in Black and White.
We can't wait to get back out there and film the final scene to bring this all together. This is a splash that's to come. Please follow @BalanceSurfFilm on Instagram for the latest updates. Website coming soon.
Thank you to my unbelievable team. Can't wait to get back out there with you for some waves.
Filmed in Victoria Australia, directed on the ground in March and from Vancouver subsequently. during the lockdown. Looking forward to sharing more with you.
Filmed on the ancient lands of Wadawurrung, the Gulidjan and the Gadubanud nations.
