was really happy about this scene when I saw it in theaters. that exact image @2:23-2:30 has been a phobia of mine forever, so I guess it was just nice to see someone else felt the same way.
I had a dream at the weekend in which I was on a beach with these huge waves coming in more regularly than would be possible IRL, and on the distant horizon huge mountain peaks. And then last night I dreamt of huge, impossibly steep mountain peaks. These landscapes reoccur in my dreams. Impossible waves, impossible mountains.
There's something dreamlike about that Interstellar scene too - the heavy gravity making it impossible to run fast, like all those dreams where it's impossible to run fast.
Later this afternoon gonna go to the beach in Sesimbra, the beach was formed by lava cooling and it has a strange shape, it gets deep pretty quickly and the waves are pretty fucking big as far as I can tell (obviously not like in the picture above). Last time we went there we just waded out and they come in and throw you around properly upside down spinning out of control, you don't know which way is up or down. Eventually it sorta spits you out on the beach winded with your swimming clothes filled up with sand, winded, spitting out sea water... it's cool. Maybe dangerous I dunno really.
Gave me new found kinda understanding of the power of those massive waves. I mean, if one that is just a bit above my head can throw me around like a toy then what must one of those massive fuckers be like?
We've cracked open the video vault on our award-winning big wave series Made In Ireland to bring you a new edit with the best moments on land and in the water from the Emerald Isle.
I worked with the kiwi guy who made it on a short cycling film for a charity thing a few years back. He let me fly his drone and i hung out the back of a van he was driving around hampshire filming cyclists, was a great day.
