‘The Heart & The Sea’ is the third release from independent Australian filmmaker Nathan Oldfield, the creator of the highly regarded left of centre surf films ‘Lines From a Poem’ and ‘Seaworthy’.
Over three years in the making, ‘The Heart & The Sea’ explores the joy that lies at the very centre of a surfing life: family, friends & a shared intimacy with the sea. Filmed in Australia, New Zealand, France & Spain, this is a gently refreshing & quietly enchanting contribution to the surf film genre.
Beautifully captured and sensitively crafted, ‘The Heart & The Sea’ features Dave Rastovich, Lauren Lindsey Hill, Alex Knost, Tom Wegener, Sage Joske, Brett Caller, Johnny Abegg, Kassia Meador, Clovis Donizetti, Belinda Baggs, Paul Joske, Ryan Burch, Chris Del Moro, Matt Chojnacki, Jared Mell, Dane Peterson, Harrison Roach & many others.
The song featured in this trailer is called ‘Happening For Us’ from Community Radio’s wonderful new album Serious Magic, which has just been released on Bandcamp & iTunes. You can find out more about Community Radio here facebook.com/communityradiomusic
