Push Process Movie Premieres Before Packed House
November 19, 2007
On November 10, a massive group of wake sport fans arrived at the Oakley headquarters in southern California to view the most anticipated wake movie in years, Push Process, sponsored by Oakley, MasterCraft, CWB and Alliance. Click here to see trailer:
Although the buzz and chatter was around this truly epic wakeboard movie, the night was also jammed full of other incredible entertainment, including DJ’s, autograph signings, on-site events and a VIP reception for the riders and their families.
However at 9 p.m. the lights went dim, the sound went to 11 and the action on the screen bedazzled the viewers for nearly an hour. Push Process, under the direction of acclaimed filmmaker Justin Stephens and graphic artist Chase Heavener, combines experimental cinematography, editing and animation graphics with the most progressive riding ever documented on the big screen. Shot exclusively in HD, Push Process took its “premiere” viewers on a quest to Australia, South Africa, the Florida Keys, Cuba, Minnesota, the Amazon, Canada and beyond.
New to the screen was also the role of the riders. Director Stephens moved them beyond spectacle to production crew. “Oakley athletes Keith Lyman, Aaron Rathy, Andrew Adkison, Amber Wing, George Daniels, Danny Hampson, Dallas Friday and Jack Blodgett are more than just the stars who create the epic footage” says Stephens. “They are members of the production team and all of them played pivotal roles in the project since day one.”
Although the theatre is empty with only the clean up left to do, those interested in seeing the film will have their opportunity. MasterCraft dealers across the country are in the planning stages right now to do their own local viewing of this incredible film over the next several months. So check with your local MasterCraft dealer for show times. And of course, you can get your own copy of the film by going to your local Oakley dealer.
