Atlanta-based Singleton Marine has released a feature-length wakeboard and wake surf film called SEASONS. The film is now available for free online streaming at SeasonsWakeFilm.com.
In early 2015, Singleton executives sat down with producers from Remedy Films to sketch out a plan to make a feature-length film about the wakeboarding life. They hoped to capture the progression of their wake team over the course of the 2015 season.
The production of the film was extensive, spanning thousands of miles traveled and featuring 18 riders, 17 boats, four personal watercraft, two ATVs and one dead fish.
“We wanted to do something that was radically different from the quick-clip, music style videos you see online today. We wanted to elevate the production value and tell a compelling story,” said SEASONS Executive Producer Evan Davis. “We felt a feature-length film was the best way to introduce our team of riders and showcasing the benefits of spending time on the water with family and friends, while establishing a deeper, more emotional connection with our audience.”
Remedy Films shot the film entirely in 4k, with an eclectic soundtrack that includes tracks by Manchester Orchestra, The Howling Tongues, Kaptan and the Painted Pianos.
“Wakeboarding, wakesurfing, they’re more than just summer sports, they’re not just for the young and carefree, they’re about identifying with something much bigger; a culture built around life on the water,” says pro wakeboarder and the film’s narrator Corey Bradley.
