High Lines – Animal – #jointheride
Released: 9th March 2016
Running Time: 13 min 45 sec
Production Role: Film and Edit
In the summer of 2015, Animal ran an Instagram competition inviting fans to #jointheride for a chance to win a trip of a lifetime with an athlete of their choice. The winner, Sky Shaw, is a 17 years old surfer from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorkshire. We waited for the perfect forecast before sending Sky on a plane with Stokesy, bound for Morocco.
Mr B Productions went along with Sky and Alan Stokes to document the trio. Despite only two and a half days to surf, we used every minute we could to surf and create a great video piece for Animal, including one of the best water filming sessions I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot, with great light, amazing waves, no crowds, the occasional heavy bash into the reef, but some great shots (4:20 – 8:20).
