We decided the best way to kick off Saint West Filmworks would be with a good old fashioned road trip. We invited our friends at Story & Heart to join us, and when they agreed, we thought we might as well make their office our destination! So it was set, San Diego to Portland. Our first day on the road found us in La Jolla, sharing the San Diego sun with some Sea Lions and waves splashing up onto the rocks. We made sure to keep our gear dry as we captured these stunning creatures in 5K and 120 FPS. From there, we hit a favorite Mexican spot for lunch, Las Olas in Cardiff. There, we met up with Greg and Lauren, our surfers who agreed to shoot with us for the afternoon. After some fish tacos curbed our appetite, we were off to Encinitas to find our secret surf spot. The resulting footage was some of the most fun we've shot to date, chasing surfers from the ground and the sky. The surf was surprisingly cooperative and the sunset was spectacular, making production a breeze. We packed up our video gear in the dark, and said goodbye to some new friends. We decided a quick stop at Pizza Port in Carlsbad would be the perfect way to end a perfect day. Stay tuned for details from Day 2!
