One more Wine Rockstar film done! Since this guy is a real rock climber and wine maker, it makes him a true rock star in the wine industry. As if that's not enough, he planted his vineyards in dry rock! The other interesting thing about Lourens van der Westhuizen is that all his wines are single cultivars. He does no blending. What you get in a specific block of grapes is what you will find in the bottle Enjoy the film.

Seventeen days in Portugal. I took a group of young waveski surfers to
Out of the 17 days of filming we had just 2 days that we could not film because of rain and strong wind. The rest of the time we were blessed with excellent surfing conditions all day long. I gathered a total of just over 300 GB of rushes. The material came from 5 different cameras: the surfing telescopic camera, lifestyle camera and 3 water cameras. All performed excellent, without any problem in a very hostile environment. The best filming experience I had on the trip was sitting on the back of a jetski while speeding next to the white water as the riders surf the wave in full glory, at times less than a meter away from me. It was my first time that I have experienced this angle seeing the riders so close and being right next to the action. I captured some incredible images in absolute perfect wave conditions. It is guaranteed to put the movie in a league of its own.

Her name is Regula Curti. A very versatile woman, who last year produced a CD called "Beyond" together with Tina Turner and Dechen Shak-Dagsay. She was completely open for the challenge and was really looking forward to our day of filming.
On the 24th, at 4 o’ clock in the morning, I started filming Regula's day. She did nothing different to any other day and I was basically just like the fly on the wall capturing the moments. Doing everything myself was a mission and the long day of filming completely exhausted me. I was filming with a new type of camera, different lenses than what I was used to and recorded the sound and picture separately. This drove me nuts since there was no time [or a spare hand] to use a clapper board to line up the sound! But I did it and it turned out to be a great day of filming.
I uploaded the rushes to Mr Scott and his team and then Regula asked me if I could cut something together for the Beyond CD with Universal records. She needs an English version for the
