Cold Feat


A look into the heart and mind of Andrew Cotton, a U.K based surfer who is partial to cold water and big waves.
All footage was contributed by friends, and shot mostly over the winter of 2011/2013 in Ireland and Portugal.
The final wave earned Andrew a nomination for a Billabong XXL award, a global award honouring those few surfers operating at the boundary of whats possible currently in terms of heavy surf.
The tune was created by Bastie Latham, and makes use of voice recordings taken in the summer of 2012.

Tim&Louise

Weddings are wonderful things. Tim and Louise are 2 very special people, and I was fortunate enough to document their special day.

Relics and Dinosours

Not sure how I feel about this, but a recent work done at Wavedreamer is being showcased at the recently opened Museum of British Surfing. The piece is called Change of Reasons, and its about motivating factors that drive big wave surfer Andrew Cotton to do what he does. It is on show as an example of a contemporary surf clip. It was done about 6 months ago, so guess that's the bit I'm struggling to add up. The M.O.B.S is not your ordinary museum though, and although its full of old things too, it has a clean, fresh and very modern feel about it. I would recommend a visit, even if its to just admire the video. By the way, now that one of my works has made it this big, Im open to accept offers to shoot pretty major movies now. Just stand in an orderly line and please no fighting.







For the Love of Craft
A little piece showing the friends down at Diplock surfboards making boards for team riders Jobe Harriss and Angus Murray.
Diplock and Fluin have such a traditional approach to building boards, but have embraced certain technologies to produce better boards, such as the shaping machine, a tool some die hards hate.
Angus and Jobe certainly love the craft that they produce.

The Here and Now project

This was a project I was working on with Richard at Wavedreamer.  For various reasons it was delayed, and in the meantime some semi known surf filmaker from the good ol U, S of A called Taylor Steele, has launched a project using the same name. Bummer! Well, just a reminder you gotta be quick in this game.

The concept of this project is still in the Pipeline with Wavedreamer, it will just have a new name.
Anyways, here is the original trailer, with a rad tune by Bastie, and sans any of the priceless V/O from Tim Heyland.

Its good to know where Taylor Steele gets his inspiration from! Hope he doesnt ask for a job.
