Y’know Jordy Smith has a peachy new profile film coming out soon, right? It’s a Red Bull Media House deal, directed by Kai Neville, and is going to be very good. We’ve already seen the first trailer, but the second one is even more revelatory. You can watch it down below. But first, here’s Red Bull’s breakdown of some numbers that clocked up during production.
Eight: Beautiful hi-def footage sure can take up a lot of space. Somewhere in the world, the final master tracks from Bending Colours are taking up eight terabytes worth of hard drive.
Five: Countries visited during the filming of Bending Colours – South Africa, Reunion Island, Indonesia, Hawaii, Mexico and the Maldives.
Thirty: Some surfboards were hurt in the making of this movie – 30 to be precise.
Two: Surprisingly, for a film that pushes the envelope as much as it does, there were only two injuries during the making of Bending Colours – a cracked rib and a tweaked ankle.
Three: The St Pierre sessions with Julian Wilson and Jordy on Reunion Island required three cameras to capture all the action – Two RED cameras and one Phantom.
$20k: Cinematographer Rick Rifici will rue the day he over-packed on his flight from Australia to Africa – the excess baggage charge was $20,000.
