Proximity is in cinemas in Australia & NZ from May 12 for a limited time only!
Over the last two decades, Taylor Steele’s films have evolved from low-fi, surf porn chopped to nostalgic punk rock tunes in Momentum, Focus & Good Times to classic skits, scripts and progressive surfing in The Show, Loose Change & Campaign. In 2006, Taylor reinvented the wheel again with some of the best surf and travel films ever produced in the Sipping Jetstreams series (Sipping Jetstreams, Castles In The Sky, This Time Tomorrow & Missing). Now, the godfather of surf filmmaking is at it again with his biggest feature film yet, Proximity.
Jump in the back seat as we take you for a ride through Kelly Slater’s career defining moments in Director’s Diary episode 3, from the Momentum years until now. We also caught up with Taylor to discuss Proximity and why Kelly was hand-picked for the film.
Hit play and follow the king from his lush haired, fresh faced grom days to being the greatest surfer on the planet, all dipped in nostalgia for your viewing pleasure. Ya like the beat? The song features Kelly & Angus Stone jamming for the soundtrack to Here & Now.
