"A Brokedown Melody" Director Speaks Today @ Apple Store
Now that the weather is more normal we can go back to enjoying the fact that we live in LA and do Southern Californian things like skating, surfing, and editing movies on our Macs.
"A Brokedown Melody" is a beautiful new surf film starring the likes of Kelly Slater, Tom Curren, Gerry Lopez, the Malloys, Rob Machado, CJ Hobgood, Jack Johnson and others. It features two tunes by Johnson, a previous unrelease solo number by Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, and No Doubt's bff Matt Costa.
Because we're spoiled as hell, today at the Apple Store on the Third Street Promenade, Emmett Mallory, one of the Malloy brothers who co-directed the film will be giving away all his secrets about surfing, directing, editing, and owning the label that Jack Johnson is on.
