SurfTasmania.com ( http://www.surftasmania.com ), Coastview Enterprises ( http://www.coastview.com.au ), and Southern Ocean Studios are pleased to announce that the long awaited Tasmanian surf film, TAZ ZERO ONE, will be released on Friday, October 11, 2002.
Shot, directed, and produced by Thomas Moore, TAZ ZERO ONE is an independent, grassroots film on Tasmanian surfing. The film features, among other local and professional surfers, Tasmanian big wave rider Andy Campbell ( http://www.andycampbell.net, Andy’s site is expected to be launched in October 2002 ) and women’s champ, Dara Penfold ( http://www.darapenfold.com ).
The musical score is 100% Tasmanian including tracks from:
- Jaye Christopher Hanson ( http://www.jayechristopherhanson.com )
- Fell to Erin ( http://www.felltoerin.com )
- Whalebone ( http://www.whalebone.com.au )
- Grassroots ( http://www.surftasmania.com/music/music.html )
While professional in quality, TAZ ZERO ONE, was produced on a shoestring budget and was literally made in a back shed on the shores of the Southern Ocean. It offers a local perspective during this new era of worldwide focus on surfing in the Australian island state and on surf spots like Shipstern bluff.
Extra features of the film include bonus surfing footage, sneak previews, and Tasmanian music videos.
