FROM HICKORY NINE:
Meaning ‘Our Waves’, Onde Nostre is a film project capturing the little known italian surf scene. The guys behind the camera, are four friends, made up of documentary filmmakers and Editors, Luca Merli, Matteo Ferrari, Gio “Sbrokked” and Ale Ponzanelli, whose vision was to open peoples eyes to the real beauty of this un-likely surfing destination and bring it to the fore-front, incompassing in a series of surf portraits (Ritratti Di Surf) depicting friendship, passion and the real joy that being in and amongst the waves brings!

RITRATTI DI SURF | PENINSULA MAKING OF
More than a year of work, 14.000 Km of roads, 10 ferryboats, 6000 meters of film, around 25 surfers involved, 10 TB used, 50 hours of renders, 1Kg of wax, 2Kg of sun lotions, 3 Bolex cameras, 2 Arriflex SR Super 16mm, one Arri 435/ 35mm and few Super8s and also, more than 300 hours standing behind a camera, 11 film festivals, uncountable phonecalls, mails, few drinks and some medicines, and lots of encounters and discoveries…
Finally the shooting of Peninsula -the new surf movie from the authors of Onde Nostre- have almost reached the end. With the “Peninsula Making Of” even the series RITRATTI DI SURF for the moment reached the conclusion.
In the next few months Luca, Matteo and Gio will be busy editing and postproducing the new movie, the release date is due in spring/summer 2014.
Be patient, it’s worthwhile!!
