Most of the source imagery for the Hurley/H2O mural that was supplied to me came from
Machado's recent visit to a small island in the south Pacific. You can see some of the images in the scenes above, which is kind of interesting to me; to see a still within it's original, larger context. I am actually eager to see more about the forthcoming film, The Drifter.
(BTW-It looks like Taylor Steele is not putting together a typical surf film. Check the beautiful trailer, with Raconteurs' amazing Carolina Drama, here.)
