Drew Miller – Awesummer
Filmmaker and surfer based out of St. Augustine Florida. Drew loves motion pictures. Watching them, shooting them, talking about them, he loves it all. An avid surfer and lover of music, many of his personal projects (which he has a lot of) revolve around these two passions. A true workhorse behind the lens, Drew will shoot all day long then go straight into the editing room. Drew is inspired by thrift stores, wave riding, and iced coffee.
Film synopsis: Summer slide in North Florida. Fresh fruit, burnt noses, beach sleeps and all the good feelings we could muster up. Florida is not a super flashy place. It is the simplicity of sessions like this that make our beaches our home. This video features style and grace from lady sliders Lauren Hill and Lisa Autrey. Other notable surfers include Chris Tincher and Nick Collins as well as Dave Rastovich who enjoys Florida’s offerings on a borrowed log. With no Budget and zero expectations the goal of this short film is to document friends and capture the essence of a beautiful day with nothing to do but surf with yer buds.
Cos We Can (Clare Plueckhahn & Fran Derham) – So It Goes
Cos We Can are a team of content creators telling stories through words, stills and film. Clare shoots and I (Fran) write. We both create and produce. At the moment we’re working on a new feature and a couple of short films. If we’re not at our computers, we’re in the ocean, at the movies or on a mountain. You can look at more of Clare’s work here and read more of Fran’s dribble here.

Anna Jerstrom – Water Warriors
After over 10 years working in high finance, Anna Jerstrom went on vacation to Costa Rica in the fall of 2009 and she fell in love, not with a man, but with surfing. She went back to London where she was working at the time, packed her bags, quit her job and moved to Costa Rica to immerse herself in her newfound passion. Water Warriors is Anna’s first venture as a film maker, and the project was inspired by a short article Anna wrote for a magazine about the Calavera girls. Anna founded Calavera in 2010 to provide water women all over the world with both a superior technical product in order for them to perform and excel in their passion without distractions of bad gear, and also to represent the “new woman”, the athlete rather than the beach bunny. Part of Anna’s mission through Calavera is to show the world how hard these women work to pursue their dream of riding that wave of their lives.
Water Warriors showcases the strength and courage of female surfers and beautifully depicts how the traits of a warrior parallel those necessary for surfing. These girls take on waves like they are going into battle; they charge the break without fear in hunt for the next wave of their lives.

Chris Grant – Danielle Burt: Chapter 2
Danielle Burt: Chapter Two: In the summer of 2004 Danielle Burt was involved in a motorcycle accident that left her with collapsed lungs, dozens of broken bones, six weeks in a coma, and ultimately, the loss of her right leg. Following a lengthy healing and recovery process, Danielle’s heart turned toward the ocean. After gathering some spare parts to create a functional “surf leg,” she caught her first waves and was immediately hooked on surfing. Danielle Burt: Chapter Two celebrates an incredibly positive human being, a great surfer, and a hero to virtually everyone she meets.
