“Film makes the memory, digital exploits a moment.” These are film maker Jack Coleman’s words about his latest surf journey, SECRET SOUND UNDERGROUND. The 41 minute movie is a psychedelic freeform take on modern-day surfing in this, his third, independently – self produced feature length surf film. Through the ambient sights and sounds that Mr. Coleman allowed us a peek at, you can see how the making of this film was no small feat. Jack’s not sipping Pina Coladas poolside after long days filming perfect Padang in Bali – he’s rolling super 8 and 16mm in the darkest crevices of society, never leaving even the most insignificant thought of cultural aspect out. Shot throughout Japan, Mexico, California, Brazil, and Indonesia.
Featuring Creed McTaggart, Ozzie Wright, Andrew Doheny, Alex Knost, Ford Archbold, Ellis Ericson, Jason “Salsa” Salisbury, Conner Coffin, Beau Foster, Jared Mell, Alex Gray, Timmy Reyes, Chris Ward, Mason Ho, Mitch Coleborn and Mob Rachado.
