Enjoyed shooting land & water cinematography for this film in Tahiti with Directors Russell Brownley & Mark Tessi. The art direction in representing REEF's theme, Just Passing Through allowed for a really fun approach to shoot non-conventionally.
Our journey begins in the Island nation of French Polynesia: "De Passage" is the French translation of Just Passing Through. After our exploration of the tropical wonderland that is Tahiti with our crew of Rob Machado, Alana Blanchard, Shane Dorian, Kai Otton, Nick Rozsa, Cyrus Sutton, Luke Davis, Tia Blanco and Paige Maddison, we set sails and and head west to the enchanted islands of Bali where we find Mikala Jones deep in uncharted territory. From there it's a short trip to the land down under to meet 3x world champion Mick Fanning on his home turf. We plot our final course west again to the frigid right points of South Africa with Taylor Knox and friends.
