This video popped up on surfline.com about a week ago, and since then has earned a lot of attention all over the web. The video is apart of Relentless Energy’s Short Stories competition, “a challenge to filmmakers around the world to explore, reveal, celebrate and define NO HALF MEASURES through the medium of film.”
Mickey Smith’s video is the first entry to this competition, and I think after seeing it, most will agree it will be a hard one to beat. Shot in super 16mm film, as well as groundbreaking work with Canon’s 5D mkII, Smith’s documentary/monologue along with some stunning shots throw us into the harsh world of surf photography in Ireland and the UK, a surprisingly up-and-coming locale for action sports.
As you may or may not have already heard, the building that The Dept. and Cal’s Pharmacy have occupied in Portland for the last 9 years was sold a few months ago. Obviously this is a huge bummer to many skaters in Portland’s skateboarding community. The Dept. always strove to be a positive contributor to that community and “will continue to do so in whatever way it can in the future.”
The workshop was a blast this year. we worked hard and got some amazing shots….as you will see from the video you are about to watch. Congrats to the campers of 2010 you really did an amazing job. Cant wait to see what next year brings.
Heres some highlight shots from the HCSC Photo worksop week of adventure!
