The Radicals is an environmental, snow and surf documentary that follows four professional snowboarders and surfers connecting with four First Nations communities who are fighting to protect the land they live on across BC, Canada,
The directors Brian Hockenstein and Tamo Campos brought me on board to create the title sequence and four infographics to introduce these stories.
The ocean, rivers, stream and salmon are at the heart of the four communities and entire ecosystem. We used sand footage filmed by Alex Wilson to represent the water with the salmon swimming against the current like the activists fighting for their land. I directed the piece, compositing the sand footage to make each shot feel like the landscapes.
It was incredible to be a part of such an important and unique film.
