Director, Jack McCoy has been capturing the surfing vision in a truly unique way.
Using a high powered underwater jet ski, the filmmaker found that he was able to travel
behind a wave, creating underwater images that have never been seen before.
“About two and a half years ago I was introduced to this high speed scooter and immediately started to develop it into a tool that would allow me to capture the underwater world I’ve been watching myself for years. Now I’m free to not only track the action, but get to places underwater quicker and show things I’ve never been able to film in the past.”
Over the past couple of years, McCoy set out to capture footage for his surf film, A
Deeper Shade of Blue. During the editing process, McCoy put one of his surfing
sequences to a song off McCartney’s The Fireman album. A mutual friend, Chris
Thomas, saw the footage while visiting McCoy in Australia, and when he returned to the
UK he gave McCartney a copy of the sequence.
“When I saw Jack McCoy’s underwater surfing footage put to the soundtrack of “Blue
Sway” I was blown away,” said McCartney.
“Blue Sway” won 'Best Music Video' at NYC BE FILM Short Festival this past May, and
the video was featured as part of Surfrider Foundation’s summer 2012 PSA campaign.
Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection
and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
