O'NEILL | BRANDED SHORT FILM

COMMERCIAL

Modern surf films (short form video content) are a dime a dozen and while the acrobatics and athleticism displayed are amazing, there is no “newness” to these films and fatigue has started to creep in.  This is what O'Neill told me when they asked me and four other filmmakers to "define the future of surf films".

I decided to make a dark, mysterious, and disorienting crime film set at a surfer campsite starring Brendan Sexton iii (Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri) and Nora Kirkpatrick (Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros).
