Coming Soon: Brent Bielmann’s POV Short Film

SURFING staff photographer Brent Bielmann has a video mount on top of his camera’s water housing which he uses every time he shoots. We’ve been stockpiling all of his video clips for the past four years, but it wasn’t until recently that Brent and I discussed the idea of finally editing it all down to a POV short film with live sound. We hope you agree that it feels really cool to hear the sounds of the waves passing by accompanied by the sound of Brent’s shutter rapidly firing as his still camera snaps photos — think war documentary, but a lot more friendly. Below is just a one-minute tease of what’s to come in the full edit entitled Life In A Bottle. —Peter Taras
