Friday night, Vissla premiered their debut short film, Palmera Express, in LA's The Byrd's Nest. The crowd was prompt in arrival, eager to dine on Eddie Obrand's creation, which stars Bryce Young, Cam Richards, Brendon Gibbens, Derrick Disney, Andrew Jacobson and more, swinging around the North Shore (and other places... but, mostly the North Shore).
The party was particularly high-spirited, thanks to free jalapeño margaritas and House Beers before opening credits. While standout performances came from Cam, Bryce, and Brendon, Malibu's Andrew Jacobson was crowd favorite. "The Bu" boys made their presence well-known, erupting at every one of his lanky appearances on screen.
The eclectic nature of Vissla's surf squad manifested in the soundtrack, which, simply put, kicked ass. From surf-goth rock to afro-cuban beats, the tunes supported a quirky narration, setting the tone of the film as a whole. Much quirk, big fun.
