WORLD PREMIERE OF BILLABONGâ€šÃ„Ã¶?Ã‘?Â¥S OUT OF THE POND WAKE FILM
‚Äö?Ñ??We are really happy with how the film turned out and getting a chance to premiere it here in the heart of the Wake community is a great opportunity,‚Äö?Ñ?? says Chris Heffner, the film‚Äö?Ñ?¥s director and head of the Billabong Wake Program.
On hand will be the director and entire team of the wakeboarders who star in the movie, who will sign autographs and interact with the audience in a Question & Answer period directly after the film finishes Saturday night.
‚Äö?Ñ??We are excited to have a Wakeboarding film in the program, says Leslie Feibleman
Senior Film Programmer / Director of Special Programs & Outreach at the NBFF. ‚Äö?Ñ??We are also very happy to have Billabong involved with our Action Sports Film Series.‚Äö?Ñ??
Exploring the contemporary progression of wakeboarding, the film will feature radical action, unique travel locations and many key personalities of the exploding sport.
A core team, which includes some of the best in the world, have been filming for more than a year now, traveling, setting up new situations, and trying to capture the most radical maneuvers many of which have been either invented or elevated by the boarders themselves.
‚Äö?Ñ??We‚Äö?Ñ?¥re definitely trying to push the envelope and include some things that have never been seen before,‚Äö?Ñ?? says Shawn Watson, who stars in the film. ‚Äö?Ñ??You know, we‚Äö?Ñ?¥re trying to be different ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ just like everyone else.‚Äö?Ñ??¬¨‚Ä† That, say many who have witnessed the footage, would be an understatement.
There are still seats available but arrive early, the premiere is expected to be a sell out.
