At the beginning of last week we saw the release of a stunning short from the guys over at Finisterre, a cold water surf company. Shot by Luke Pilbeam, Common Ground is a short film that captures the stories and histories of a group of surf ambassadors for Finisterre.
The film introduces us to each member individually, as they share the particulars of their upbringing, and what attracted them to the ocean from a young age. Shot in beautiful black and white, in the depths of NW Donegal, Pilbeam masterfully captures the grit and reward of cold water surfing, what it means to this group of people, and its importance to the identity of Finisterre. This is certainly one of our favourite videos of the month, check it out here.
