World Premiere Date and Screening Locations Announced
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CARDIFF-BY-THE-SEA, CA November 9, 2010 – GoPro and WAX are proud to announce the locations of the world premieres of Innersection: Blue. The events will take place simultaneously in 26 cities around North America, Canada and Puerto Rico and many of the stops will be hosted by the athletes who's winning sections are featured in the film. The DVD will be distributed by WAX and will be available in stores late November.
Innersection: Blue has been in-the-making for the past year. Working with established filmmakers, pro surfers have pushed themselves to each build a 2-3 minute surf section, which they entered in the five Innersection contest rounds. During each round, registered Innersection members were asked to vote on their favorite sections to determine the top 25 that will make up the DVD.
After the final 25 sections were chosen, the athletes went back to their filmmakers edit bay's, and some even to their helicopters, to create all new sections for the final DVD. With Taylor Steele producing everything, Innersection has all the action of Campaign and Stranger, with and unexpected dose of art and soul. That’s what happens when 25 directors each pour all their efforts and clips into a rock-solid 2-3 minute segment. There are more destinations than Sipping Jetstreams, more surfers than Stranger Than Fiction, and more talent than the World Tour.
Each DVD copy will have a unique code printed on a business card inserted in the package. Innersection members will be able to vote for which surfer has the best section. With $100,000 for the winner, it's going to be very competitive.
