Globe is transforming the humble surf vid with their upcoming opusÂ Year Zero. The trailer dropped not long ago and whilst I not much of a surf fan, I do like a good muscle car burnout and credit where credit is due, this film looks pretty next level. The soundtrack alone is impressive, created specifically for the film by Black Mountain. Enough of my jibba jabba, hereâ€™s the official run-downâ€¦
â€œYEAR ZERO is a modern take on high performance surfing set in a post-apocalyptic world, reminiscent of Mad Max or an HG Wells novel. It tells a story of a band of renegade surfers, including Dion Agius, Yadin Nicol, Nate Tyler, Taj Burrow, CJ Hobgood and Damien Hobgood, on a road trip through the apocalypse in search of waves, women, and good times. The filmâ€™s original soundtrack by BLACK MOUNTAIN, whom VICE MAGAZINE has called, â€œOne of the best rock nâ€™ roll bands of our time,â€ creates a sonic landscape that fully delivers the immersive experience that director Joe G envisioned for the film.
The film was shot on location around the world entirely in super 16mm film and offers a unique concept with stunning visuals that capture the essence of surfing in a novel setting. YEAR ZERO follows GLOBEâ€™S previous award winning productions such as SECRET MACHINE and NEW EMISSIONS OF LIGHT AND SOUND and is undoubtedly GLOBEâ€™S largest film project to date.â€
