In the Spring of 2011, we set out to produce a lifestyle and swimsuit calendar for the Wine, Waves & Beyond Event on the Central Coast of California. We decided to shoot a film while we were at it. 'Beyond' is what came out of it all. All proceeds from the Event and Calendar benefit AmpSurf, a NPO that aids in the rehabilitation of amputee war veterans through the joy of surfing.
This was the product of great collaboration and I could not have accomplished this piece without the skill, talents, and resources of 25 other amazing people. Special Thanks to the Wine, Waves and Beyond Lifestyle Event, Chica Rica Bikinis, Brian O'Kelly for the amazing VW Bus, and Lauren McIntyre & Charles Crellin for treating us so well.
Tech Details: Nearly the entire film was shot handheld with limited motion stabilization in After Effects CS5 and rolling shutter correction from The Foundry. This film was shot entirely with the Canon 7D, and 90% with the Tamron 17-55 f2.8 for versatility and image stabilization. Also used were a Nikon 50 mm f1.4 and 85 mm f1.4.
