I’m in awe. I came across this stunning promotional short film for Rip Curl’s Mirage board shorts this evening while surfing (please excuse that terrible pun) Vimeo, my absolute favourite video site.
To promote their latest range of quality board shorts, Aussie surf brand Rip Curl took the clever and creative folk at “Timeslice Films” with them to “Sunway Lagoon Wave Pool” in Malaysia, along with some of today’s top Aussie surfers including Owen Wright, Matt Wilkinson and world champions, Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore.
Timeslice set up a rigging of 52 Canon DSLRs poolside, and snapped themselves quite the awesome package of Matrix-like-bullet-time footage, featuring the said pro surfers pulling some pretty phenomenal maneuvers in and above the wave pool.
The resulting, stunning video is listed below, followed by a look behind the scenes at how it was all put together. Wow!
