PassmoreLab Completes Principal Photography on New 3D Surfing Film
Studio Wraps in Hawaii & Readies ‘Physics of Surﬁng’ for Spring Release
assmoreLab, the San Diego-based multi-media 3D production studio, has completed principal photography in the Hawaiian Islands on a new educational 3D surfing film called
Physics of Surﬁng,
available to science centers and museums this Spring.
The film, shot on RED cameras in high-definition 3D, and using PassmoreLabʼs proprietary 3D rigs and stereo synthesis conversion, follows two professional female surfers as they surf Hawaii’s North Shore and famous beaches along California’s coast, exploring surﬁng's inﬂuence on modern culture while experiencing Mother Nature’s majestic power in the creation of our ocean’s waves.
PassmoreLab’s passion for science-based adventure content, coupled with the studio’s willingness to travel to far-off destinations to tell nature’s astounding stories, is evident in
Physics of Surfing,
and is also revealed in the incredible cinematography of their two new forthcoming Digital 3D films –
The Extreme Nature of Bats
– due to be released this spring.
It is Greg Passmore’s penchant for challenging locations and rugged production that sets
Physics of Surfing
apart from other surfing films. As the newest addition to the rich history of surf cinema,
Physics of Surfing
showcases magnificent scenery and spectacular surﬁng action, while illustrating the principles of physics, as well as surfing’s spirit, history and culture.
“Locations have their own unique conditions, and we have become very comfortable shooting in demanding environments,” said Greg Passmore, president of PassmoreLab and director of the film. “To get the completely immersive 3D surfing experience that I was looking for in this film, we had to go where the waves were and then become really inventive to get the shots.”
Pro Surfers Julie Cox and Kyla Langen, the two featured surfers in the film, are both longtime surfing competitors and aficionados. Cox, a talented longboarder who has competed in contests around the globe, consistently places in the top 10 of international events held in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Langen has surfed professionally in over twenty countries and works with the Cousteau Foundation's CELP program as a youth instructor. Both women are also surf coaches.
Unlike other surﬁng documentaries,
Physics of Surﬁng
is an educational ﬁlm that uncovers the physical science of ocean waves and the art of surﬁng. In this captivating presentation, the ﬁlmmakers explore how energy moves through water, building and combining its force, traveling thousands of miles over the course of weeks until the ocean ﬂoor underneath disrupts the wave’s formation and causes it to pitch up
and collapse. The ﬁlm also investigates the science behind various surﬁng styles and how surfers instinctively address such notions of
while using the
energy of motion
to ride waves.
Audiences will experience the exhilaration of surﬁng, while learning how surfers play with nature's purest form of energy and power. They will even see how the modern technology of surfboard design affects a board’s performance on the wave.
The musical legacy of surﬁng is also a rich and exciting element of surf culture and
Physics of Surﬁng
honors this with a truly inspired soundtrack. Produced by Dusty Watson, it includes tracks from instrumental surf-rock mainstays Slacktone and Southern California's legendary skate-punk band Agent Orange. Since the late 70s, Agent Orange has had an enormous inﬂuence on the skate-punk/surf-rock scene and Slacktone are widely regarded as the greatest exponents of the genre. Rounding out the musical lineup is punk supergroup Osaka Popstar - the standard bearers of old-school punk in the 21st century - featuring members of the Ramones, the Misﬁts, and Black Flag.
Physics of Surﬁng
(http://www.physicsofsurfing.com) is scheduled for release to Science Centers and Museums in April.
