Feature-Length Documentary Highlights First Responders of the Sea
Marty Hoffman Films announces the upcoming release of the feature-length documentary “Big Wave Guardians: First Responders of the Sea,” in association with MacGillivray Freeman Films. The documentary is set for a late June premiere with limited theatrical release through Adventure Entertainment nationwide this summer.
The 90-minute documentary explores the dramatic stories of Hawaii’s big wave guardians, some of the world’s best athletes, lifeguards, and surfers, who risk their lives in the world’s most dangerous waves while inventing innovative water safety techniques previously unimagined.
“We’ve put together this all-star team of storytellers to bring to life one of the most unheralded group of first responders in the world,” says Mary Hoffman, the film’s executive producer.
The film’s production team features executive producers Greg and Shaun MacGillivray of MacGillivray Freeman Films, Scott Bradfield, along with Hoffman. The movie is produced by Mark Collins, directed and edited by Luke Stirtz, and written by Jim Kempton. Director of photography is Chris Zamoscianyk, with second unit producer Daniel Russo, and archival producer Wyatt Daily.
“Big Wave Guardians” is the first in a series of feature-length films called This Surfing Life.
“This film is just the beginning of a bigger series we’re producing,” says Hoffman. “My vision is to create the ultimate surfing anthology. The sport, lifestyle, and industry have been central to my life and career. Now, through this series, I can give back to the sport that gave me so much.”
