CHROMATIC – A Surfmovie With Nathan Fletcher & Chippa Wilson

Chromatic

Using a mix of high quality, premium HD and vintage film cameras, Director Riley Blakeway depicts visual narrative into the lives of Nathan and Chippa, as they travel the globe from Hawaii to Australia, California, France, Fiji and Central America. Chippa’s extreme aerial skills and Nathan’s jaw-dropping big wave rides are primary examples of the incredible feats humans can accomplish in nature.

The word ‘chroma’ is defined by the purity of color. Analog is characterized by our team and influenced by the chroma each individual emits. “Color to me, has always been a metaphor to describe personality or character,” says Director Riley Blakeway, “Nathan and Chippa are such interesting and inspired characters, both in and out of the water and this is something I really wanted to portray through the candid, home-video moments throughout the film. It was a pleasure to work with such talented surfers and such a great team.” Color defines us in existence. Color is alive. This is Chromatic. ❚ Flattr this
