Slow Burn

Sometimes, during a normal day at the office your co-editor happens to show you something she did a couple years ago and it sorta, just kinda blows your socks off. Well, no, that doesn't happen so often (mostly cus, you know, we're working, see.) But as unlikely as it may be, it happened today. Isabel Freeman, who often edits with Mikey DeTemple (Sight Sound, North) and Ava Warbrick (Stephanie In The Water) edited this for Jesse Cain (who also DP'd Stephanie In The Water.) I present it to you.  It is worth the meditation.

(And for you impatient types, the surfing section, which is incredible, starts around the 15 minute mark.  But I gotta say, it hits even harder as part of the whole film.)

Kinematics is the study of motion of a body or a system of bodies without consideration given to the forces acting on it; Slow Burn is a study of the repetitive patterns and futile momentum of American recreation.—Jesse Cain
