Amazing work by a very talented man

Post by Martyn » Mon Aug 23, 2010 9:20 pm

This guy (Mickey Smith) not only shot all of this short film but edited it and did the music. It's a crime that somebody with this much talent and courage still doesn't really get paid enough to earn a good living from what he does, even with sponsors like Relentless using his work for promotion of their shitty product. This is well worth a watch and listen even if your not a surfer, you will probably never have seen footage of the north west coast of Ireland from these perspectives, balls of steel and an amazing amount of skill with a camera!

You have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the video, I tried embedding it but I'm not sure it's possible here.

Wow, that was absolutely amazing. I couldn't really understand most of what he said, since the cinematography kept dragging my attention away from the man's voice, but I did manage to gleam the meaning after watching it the second time around.

Very inspirational, thanks for sharing this gem.

The piano riff is just breathtaking. Beautiful music and filming. Talent beyond measure.

Perfectly placed too, I must admit it took me a while to realise he's also done the music.

I really hope he gets some deserved recognition for his work, you have to be plain nuts to attempt to surf those spots let alone just swim around with a camera you can only just afford. The water temp is absolutely frigid too.
