It's 1962. Bruce Brown, an ambitious young filmmaker has an idea for a new project -The Endless Summer. The concept - follow the summer season around the world with two surfers on a quest for the perfect wave. As it turned out, Bruce was on to something. Not only did the film become a hit, it earned a cult following, became the most successful surf film of all time and arguably made him the founding father of action sports films.
The legendary SCORE Baja 1000. This 18-month project, written and directed by this country's foremost action sports documentary superstar, is the most in-depth and dramatic exploration of the world's toughest point-to-point desert race ever created. This is Dust 2 Glory.
In 1971, 'On Any Sunday' starring Steve McQueen opened in theatres and wrote its place in motorcycle history. It also transcended the sport to reach a wide audience through a cast of engaging characters and variety of heartfelt stories. 'On Any Sunday, The Next Chapter' will continue this family tradition and also pass the torch to the next generations. A lot has happened in the past 40 years, but the passion for riding is timeless and continues today.
"Highwater" is an action-packed adventure centered around surfing's Triple Crown competitions, the professional surfing tour's final three competitions held each year on the North Shore of Oahu. The Triple Crown is the ultimate proving ground for world class surfers, but the events also lure amateurs, surfers young and old, and hopefuls to the North Shore. The film follows multiple story lines over the course of the entire competition and will rely upon Dana Brown's unique ability to take cinematic events and populate them with heroes and everyday people to construct a moving story.
An action-adventure documentary chronicling the most notorious and dangerous race in the world--the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Rivaling the Indy 500 and 25 Hours of Daytona, the race across Baja's peninsula is unpredictable, grueling and raw--just like the uncharted American West of yesteryear. Thousands of participants, generations of families and racing icons such as Robby Gordon, Mario Andretti, Jimmy Vasser and Motorcycle Supercross legend Mike Mouse McCoy joined together to experience the thrill and glory of the infamous race--an event of sheer human determination.
Brown, in the tradition of his father, has captured dazzling images of surfers riding curls in some of the world's most exotic--and sometimes unlikely--places. Besides the action on Lake Michigan, Brown leads us to Costa Rica, where the sport's senior elite (including Summer star Robert August) prove they still have the moves, and Oahu's North Shore, where the legendary Pipeline inspires this quote: "It's so scary, maybe you die a little." Great personal stories here, including the tale of Northern California's Dale Webster, who has never missed a day on the waves in 30 years.
Bruce Brown, king of surfing documentaries, returns after nearly thirty years to trace the steps of two young surfers to top surfing spots around the world. Along the way we see many of the people and locales Bruce visited during the filming of Endless Summer.
