A unique and cinematic look at the art of shaping surfboards. This montage was shot entirely on one 400′ roll of film, in one day, without any planning or preproduction. The challenge of this shoot was to put an emphasis on the cinematography while be cautious of film usage, yet taking the time to set up beautiful shots. SANDED has been accepted and nominated for several awards at various festivals around the world.
