The Inertia

This was an exceptional year. We did a lot of stuff. And a lot of stuff happened as the earth traveled around the sun. Over the course of the last 365 days, we produced and released 82 separate film and video projects. Which is kind of hard to believe.

And they ran the gamut. From producing a country Western surf flick with Leah Dawson at the Wavegarden to profiling a Harvard-educated Philosophy Professor who rips to riding powder with Gerry Lopez at Mt. Bachelor, 2017 brought us so many enriching experiences with amazing characters that it’s a treat to take stock of it all.

The playlist we curated above includes seventeen of our favorites. If you’ve got an hour, we think you’ll enjoy these journeys. We’re looking forward to many more in 2018.
