Shot in September 2008 with one camera and distributed in May 2009, Morning Glory is our first auto-production.
The Story is pretty simple, 8 surfers are travelling on a luxury boat in the Mentawaï Islands during 10 days looking for the best waves.
At first, the movie was offered with the 2009 Spring issue of Surf Europe magazine and I'm really happy to have the opportunity to show it on Vimeo.
It's the french version and length is approximatively 45mn.
Morning Glory is now 2 years old and it's really fun to see how these 8 surfers have evolved since September 2008, especially the younger ones, Marc, Charly, Naum & Romain.
Hope you'll enjoy watching it!
Originally Contrast was a half hour film i made from my inherent Love for the unique individual art form of Bodyboarding, and my own country. Released originally on DVD to local enthusiasts, Now re edited into a shorter web Film. Take into account when viewing it is not Sponsored by any energy drink or any corporates. South Africans can't live a normal life on an average salary like people in other countries which means cameras jet skis and standard travel and exploration is very difficult to make happen(unless u come here with better currency and companies). this has made me no profit, actually cost me much time and most of my savings. I often ask myself why did i not use my media ability to rather film mainstream extreme sports things that would bring me gain, cause therz enough of that and i don't have a helicopter or a phantom cam & @ least it is not full of corporate branding which i feel is quite nice bla blah blaargh, one LOVE Thank YAHWEH and people who like this
Over the past 3 years he's logged first descents in a half-dozen countries, battled back to life from an accident that nearly killed him, and become the most talked about skier in the epicenter of all things extreme -- Chamonix, France.
What makes Andreas most intriguing, however, are his thoughtful musings on meaning from a life on the edge - a willingness to enter mental spaces that few have ever experienced.
In Tempting Fear Sweden's soft-spoken Adventurer of the Year explores a place in which fear overwhelms all emotions, playing both friend and enemy in a pas de deux where death lies just one misstep away.
