Insanely Great was filmed at Tea Tree Bay in Noosa National Park on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The film highlights the talent of some of the Sunshine Coast’s local surfers.
This film is a variation of another film of mine called Ghost Riders - as you’ll see, Insanely Great uses much of the same footage but employs a cover version of The Doors’ song The End, performed by Days of the New. This cover version is nowhere near as dark and brooding as the original and for this reason it gives the film a completely different ambiance.
Insanely Great also uses the sound of the ocean to give the soundtrack more texture and realism. If you have the time, please watch both versions and let me know how they strike you.
The section of coastline inside Noosa National Park is picturesque and extremely popular with surfers of all ages and abilities. It’s popular because it offers numerous points where reliable surf is nearly always found.
As you follow the coastal track that skirts the numerous bays you often encounter surfers - a board under their arm - hurrying to get to their preferred location to catch the waves. Watch the film and you’ll see really skilful action on both short and long boards, and from both young and old riders.
The film was captured in high definition PAL using a Sony HDR-FX1E camera and was composed using the Panavision aspect ratio. It was post processed using Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.
