"A stunning new surf movie"
A landmark surfing film is coming
So that’s a wrap: edit over, music score locked down, finished film in our hands. Yes, our new surf documentary Powers of Three is complete, bringing to an end six memorable months in the company of the film’s three protagonists, Tom Lowe, Fergal Smith and Mickey Smith.
Looking back, all those involved should feel at least a smidgen of pride. We certainly do. What started as a loose exploration of three Artists cutting their teeth on some brutal Irish breaks - spend some time out there, shoot some surf footage, head back - gradually evolved into something a little deeper. A story emerged, a group portrait of human camaraderie and togetherness cast against the stark beauty of Ireland’s jagged coast. A surf film first and foremost, the action we shot in the water still proved as compelling as anything we could have wished for, but we suspect it will be this powerful convergence of man and nature, locked together through the long winter months, and as much out of the water as in it, that we’ll remember most vividly. Some days were undeniably difficult, and others, as the film will testify, were dangerous. At all times, though, it proved rewarding. We just hope you enjoy it too.
The Telegraph called it "a stunning new surf movie" and "an almost transcendental quest to surf where others simply do not go".
