ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI SURGES INTO PRODUCTION IN THE PACIFIC
September 15, 2008 / The Stephen Low Company is now in production on Ultimate Wave Tahiti. Filming for the project was undertaken from August through mid-September, yielding dramatic 3D surfing action footage at Teahupoo, Tahiti and remarkable scenes throughout the islands of French Polynesia.
Directed by Stephen Low and featuring eight-time world surfing champion Kelly Slater, Ultimate Wave will immerse IMAX audiences in the story of an ocean wave and the lives it impacts and transforms. From astounding 3D surfing action to the chaos of ocean storms, the film leads audiences on a quest to understand one of this planet’s most intriguing and dramatic phenomena.
Action in Ultimate Wave Tahiti focuses on Tahiti and the volcanic islands of French Polynesia, home to some of the world’s most challenging surfing and to astounding coral reef ecosystems at the turbulent interface between island and ocean. The islands are also a homeland of the Polynesian seafaring culture and the surfing art integral to the film.
Ultimate Wave Tahiti will be filmed in large-format 3D for exhibition in IMAX, IMAX 3D and other giant screen theaters worldwide. The project is produced by The Stephen Low Company in association with K2 Communications. Ultimate Wave Tahiti is presented by Suzuki Automotive, with additional support from Tahiti Tourisme and Quiksilver, Inc., the world’s leading outdoor sports lifestyle company.
The film is scheduled for release fall, 2009. Visit the official site.
