Mickey Smith- The Dark Side of the Lens

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.
