Dir. Jason Muir and Dane Reynolds, 2006
With a gritty feeling and some gritty feeling music, “First Chapter” looks into the progressive surfing of Dane Reynolds. Filled with little clips of Dane outside the water and awkward interviews with Dane talking about his dog or some other random point, this film is seriously entertaining.
The filming is okay and the editing is simple (kinda feels like it was made in Dane’s basement) but “It should at least make you psyched to go surf,” as the back cover explains. I agree. The surfing is high-performance and it gets you ready to shred.
**My tip? Check out the bonus footage “Ghost Stories” and “Kind of Snowboarding.” “Ghost Stories” is just fun and “Kind of Snowboarding” will make you feel a little better when you miss that floater or air and will definitely give you a laugh.
Here you will find reviews of Surf Films, Climbing Films, and others, and maybe even a movie from "Hollywood."Got any suggestions send through Twitter, Facebook or the Contact Page.
