Chris McClean’s entry into the London Surf Film Festival’s ‘Shorties’ competition.
Below you’ll find his brief description of the intentions and inspirations behind the film.
An ode to the fickle North Sea.
I wanted to show the euphoria and frustration of scoring or missing an all too rare chance encounter with a capricious break. I’m always intrigued by an atmosphere where chance and servitude meet on equal terms. The North Sea’s anarchic disregard for schedule effects ones own wonder and involvement in the blink of an eye.
