6ixty Foot Films and Madman Entertainment are pleased to announce the launch of Storm Surfers 3D, a ground-breaking new 3D adventure movie following best friends and surfing legends Tom Carroll and Ross Clarke-Jones on their quest to hunt down and ride the biggest, most dangerous waves in Australia.
Storm Surfers 3D premieres in Sydney on August 14 ahead of Special Event Screenings around the country with guest appearances from the fearless big-wave explorers. Limited release screenings follow in selected 3D cinemas nationally.
Surfing and innovative 3D cinematography converge in this unparalleled documentary following Tom, Ross, Meteorologist Ben Matson, 25 crew and over 1,000 kg of equipment on their mad, high-stakes race against the clock to conquer and film these massive waves, taking viewers on an incredible journey with them.
Storm Surfers 3D Producers Marcus Gillezeau and Ellenor Cox are thrilled with the level of interest both locally and abroad, citing this convergence as a world first.
“It was apparent from the outset that Storm Surfers was going to be a logistically and technically ambitious project, considering the technology required to shoot a surf movie in 3D was non-existent,” said Gillezeau.
Inspired by a desire to take ‘surf movies’ to a new place, the production team were up for the challenge, capturing over 1500 hours of footage and shooting at the highest 3D ratio, another world first.
Narrated by Toni Collette, with music score by Michael Yerserski and Richard Tognetti, Storm Surfers 3D is an incredible experience - immersing the viewer on a jaw-dropping journey as they ride behind Carroll and Clarke-Jones in a death-defying fifteen-foot wave.
