Sure to be one of the most talked-about water-based documentaries for years, Bending Colours, the long-awaited action-sports movie about pro-surfer Jordy Smith is nearing its November 5 world premiere.
Bending Colours, a Red Bull Media House production realized by Kai Neville Studio, gains unprecedented access to Jordy Smith’s personal and professional life and, through the use of new camera and production technologies, presents a wholly unique take on the surfing movie genre. One of the world’s most intuitive and expressive board riders, Jordy can regularly be seen on the podium at competitive events. From Reunion Island to Mexico to Indonesia and back again, the South African surfs like a shaken-up bottle of champagne as he squirts rooster tails and drowns rails on the high seas.
Director Kai Neville takes Jordy as his subject in Bending Colours and creates something totally new to the surfing genre, thanks to a hugely inventive mixture of cinematic highs, visual manipulation and pulse-quickening surf action.
The trailers, online now at www.redbull.com/bendingcolours, give you a great taster of what to expect from this hugely anticipated movie event and will undoubtedly build up excitement levels for the World Premiere taking place at the O’Neill Cold Water Classics in Santa Cruz on November 5. The World Premiere will be accompanied by a live web cast on www.redbull.com/surfing. Bending Colours is released internationally on iTunes, DVD and Blu-ray™ on November 6, 2012.
