Nysff-feedLast night I went to the NYSFF (because I'm a lucky bitch with a friend who works for JetBlue and surfs). Matt Beauchesne's "Scratching The Surface: The Julian Wilson Project" was aesthetically incredible with rad helicopter shots; music selection was bomb (went wild when M.I.A. track came on); and locations they shot at were beautiful (West OZ, Europe, Africa, bam bam bam...).

"Scratching the Surface documents the adventures of Julian Wilson, along with friends and fellow professionals Dane Reynolds, Taj Burrow, Dusty Payne, Mick Fanning and others as they spend a year hitting some of the world’s most beautiful surf spots. Scratching the Surface also teamed Wilson and Beauchesne with Brain Farm Cinema, whose goal was to evolve the way surf films are made by utilizing helicopters and the Phantom HD camera, shooting entirely in HD and incorporating an energetic and unique soundtrack." --NYSFF

Also, went to the viewing of The Westsiders. By the end of the documentary I fell in love with Ratboy and his life. Barney has an insanely creative mind and story; Flea was the master Maverick; and the Godfather was a motherfuckin' honest gangster transformed into giant teddybear. 

Check the trailers out. Event runs today as well with four viewings (3 films): NYSFF TICKETS HERE
