Catch It: A Short Film About a Passion for Life and Surfing

leave a comment »

My friend Sarah Menzies makes beautiful films, and I remember being blown away when I first saw her short film Catch It.

When you hear “surf film” you think of a certain genre of films, and if you’re not interested in surfing, then most often you shy away from those films. But while Catch It is a film about surfing, it’s about much more than that, which is one of the reasons I love Sarah’s work. She manages to capture the essence of a person through their passion, and this film is less about surfing and more about what makes Léa Brassy tick. What makes her excited. What gives her the drive for life.

So even though I am not a surfer, I love this film. And I hope you do too.
