Film by Devin Graham and the Mozo family
Music score by Stephen Anderson
We have been working on this documentary since November of 2010. I got brought on by my friend Aaron Nelson who helped organize it. I have been working with the Mozo family to tell Jon's story, in which the documentary is about.
Jon is a widely respected ocean/surf photographer known for not only his awesome photography work, but for the impact he left on all those he came around. That is what attracted me about the project to begin with, how many people loved this man because of his amazing impact on everyone he came in contact with. He died tragically at Pipeline 6 years ago doing the very thing he loved, photographing the waves. You can see more of Jon's work at his website here below.
Everything in the trailer was shot by me, except for 4 of the surfing shots, which my friend/professional surf cinematographer captured.
His name is Joel Guy. He is based on the island of Kauai, but travels all around the world shooting surf movies for companies like Billabong and Transworld. You can contact him and check out his website here if your interested in check out his work. http://www.hanaleishack.com

On a technical level:
The documentary is being shot on a Canon 5D Mark II, and some of it is being filmed on the Canon 7D.
I use a SPL underwater housing for all the water shots where the camera is in the water.
As far as audio equipment goes, I use a Zoom H4N, with a Sennhiser MKH 416 Mic.
