GET SWEET selected for screening at New York Surf Film Festival 2010 and Byron Bay Film Festival 2011

Music Video made from original late 1970’s super-8 surf/skate footage for my band Rosie and The Thorns.

In the late seventies Andrew Seymour and Murray Ingersole used an 8mm camera to film their friends (including my husband Mark) surfing, skateboarding and just goofing around. They made two 30 minute films, Little Tuesday and Surfarosso Antiko, and presented an entire show including cinema advertising by ‘Val Lander’ for such items as Murray’s Durries (fictional) and Rock Pool surfboards. They cued the soundtrack live from a record player, with epic tunes from bands like The Doors and Fleetwood Mac. The live production was recorded onto VHS and resurfaced recently to be transferred to DVD for family and friends. The footage captures the lifestyle of the late seventies in Australia so well that I couldn’t resist using it for a video clip. Having the cover of a Beach Boys song on the album made it the obvious choice…
