If you haven’t heard about it yet, Metal Neck, which premiered earlier this month in Costa Mesa, is, according to Stab Mag, the “new frontier of surf movies. Maybe. Or maybe not.” It’s an original new surfer film from Andrew ‘Droid’ Doheny and Matt Tromberg, and also stars Creed McTaggart, Ford Archbold, Bobby Okvist, and most importantly it stars Metal Jimmy.[caption id="attachment_3566" align="alignleft" width="590" caption="Photo credit: lifewithoutandy.com"][/caption]
It was a long time coming and Tromberg and Droid “wanted to do our best to make it as original as possible.” Well, that they definitely did – it’s not like your usual surfing flicks. “It’s all freesurfing, it’s pretty relaxed and fun. Some parts are fast and might get you amped, but some parts are more slowed-down and chilled. I jumped in on the editing a lot and gave my two-cents. Matt Tromberg and I worked on it a lot together, but it’s mostly Tromberg’s project and he edited it,” said Droid.
So, check out the trailer here for a whole new take on surf films:
