With the day of the sail racing ‘music video’ style behind us, sailing’s cutting edge creatives have been learning to speak truth to sailing with new shots, creative editing, and real narrative. And along with Petey Crawford and Sam Greenfield, no one is pushing harder than Waterlust’s Pat and Fiona, and this is their most masterful work yet in a short career full of gorgeous, creative sailing and maritime movies.
It’s the story of the ‘Angry Burds’ – Tripp and Trevor Burd and the hi-po 23-foot beach cat they took from Washington to Alaska in this summer’s epic new R2AK. But it’s also the story of one of the baddest media vehicles we’ve ever seen, a gorgeous editor and her creatively explosive man, an epic road trip, and a pair of brothers bonded in the forge of the ocean.
The 30 minute piece is the kind of show that Warren Miller or David Brown would be proud of; part ‘surf style’ and part adventure story. Drone footage, time lapse roadwork, and the sheer beauty of the Inside Passage make it something you can share with your grandmother or granddaughter equally. Sit back, grab an icy beverage and your favorite sailor, and enjoy. And huge props to the folks at Sperry for making the film and the Burds’ program possible.
