My name is Hayden Griffith and this is my latest film narrative about a South Coast young-gun, Darcy Declouett.
During the New Year period this year myself and water cinematographer, Samuel Connelly, headed over to film the wet season in Bali, Indonesia. The aim was to create a story which followed the waters journey from mountains to sea, in representation of Darcy’s unexplored pathway as a young aspiring free-surfer.
We aimed to produce a piece which not only engaged with the surfing community, but also non-surfers alike. We wanted to challenge the perception of popularity through short, fast rip-clips and test the waters of presenting a more expressive and thoughtful narrative. I want to encourage the audience to take the time to boil the kettle, relax and find peace in the vignette that is Enigma.
