This Kid Just Broke Every Rule Of Traditional Surf Filmmaking...And It Kinda Works
Abeyance. Def: a state of temporary disuse or suspension.
Talented filmers who are dedicated to their craft wind up with a lot of (you guessed it) clips.
The more time one spends behind the lens and in the editing bay, the more their understanding of this dubious endeavor expands. While Logan Marshall is relatively new to this game, one can’t deny his grind. The Outer Banks native spent the winter logging marathon days at Pipe and training his lens on Bo Raynor ripping some of the East Coast’s most coveted sand bars. Suffice to say: the man was gorging on A-clips.
Not one to fall into the trap of merely “dumping” his footage like many others in his pursuit, Logan decided to release a multi-layered edit, invent an entirely new editing concept, and launch a company in the process. Rather than put words in his mouth, I’ll share some of Logan’s thoughts behind Eyewonsea Cinema:
“Since the beginning of 2020 I’ve been studying how certain things affect the brain while watching a video. I created a formula that I used in this video that includes color schemes, sonic effects and movement, framing, and more which is now known as Eyewonsea Cinema.”
The complete breakdown of the concepts behind Eyewonsea Cinema can be found here, but to give you the gist of it, Logan went full Rambo on this thing. Breaking all the rules in terms of color correction and shooting, "Abeyance" provides for an overwhelming experience for the viewer, and that’s in no small part due to the fact that it features Matt fucking Beacham of Fuel TV. The icing on the cake is a Nick Marshall section to end the clip, where Logan drops banger after banger of Nick laying down some of the cleanest punts done this winter on his pink-railed Sharp Eyes.
Click in for "Abeyance", and if you like what you see, read Logan’s thoughtful words behind the concept. They’re almost as sweet the flip at 10:10.
