John John Florence has teamed up with Director Blake Keuny, who also directed the critically acclaimed “Done” in 2013 and Brain Farm Studios to produce this visually stunning movie “A View From A Blue Moon“. The film was released in Oahu, Hawaii November 11 and worldwide November 12, 2015. It is the first surf film to be shot entirely in high definition Red cameras and phantom 4K, providing the immersive sound and mesmerizing visuals. The cinematography in this trailer is nothing short of brillance and will definitely influence the way surfing is documented in the future.
The film follows Florence and his closest friends and fellow professional surfers to his favorite surfing destinations around the globe. From the South Pacific to the darkest uncharted waters of Africa, Florence faces a broad spectrum of emotions as he continues to seal his legacy as one of the most gifted surfers ever. And while the young Hawaiian is pulled in increasingly different directions, there is no form of pressure that will keep him from his ultimate goal — to redefine what is possible in the ocean.
