A look back at Australian Junior surfing in 2007. I directed and produced this during my time at Billabong and it was some of the best times of my life, with some of the best humans I know. A concept in Australian surfing that is missing in 2015.
BLACK SWAN ft Savhanna drops tonight // Looks by Abby Rose Bikinis & Runamuk Visuals // Is your brand or label looking to create film concepts? contact me e: firstname.lastname@example.org //
Shot on RED Scarlet.
Location: Noosa Heads.
The past few days have been void of ‘regularity’, void of that stale process of clocking in and clocking out. Whilst spending most of my life doing what I love, there are times when the rules change, the lines move, the grey area widens. I love to shoot, to edit, to paint, but I am often employed to use these skills for projects that take the ‘love’ away. But, I sit here on the first day of the working week, after smudging the money worries out from the back of my mind, and shifting left to take focus on enjoying some time away from ‘making a living’ and looking at creating again. What made the last few days shine is a few people have commissioned me to create exactly what I would of anyhow. They didn’t lay down miles of direction, or budget constraints or ego, they just said ‘go for it’, and that’s when I work best, when I am happy, and have some confidence. In turn I created some work that I actually dig, which is rare.
A lack of time and a need for money must of killed the creative lives of so, so many artists. It’s a shame, and I thank the powers that be, and my family for having faith in me to take a few risks and have a dig at making stuff, doing shit and not giving in to societies guidelines.
Below are a few examples from a few mediums that make up what I do and what RV is all about.
If you have a brand / project / concept or empty wall that you think RV could bring to life, contact me and lets make cool shit!
With all the elements and variables on the table, going into a shoot solo and aiming to capture video & stills can bring you undone. Yesterday things came together. Here are a handful of selects // Model: Savhanna Fowler // Model / Assistant: Monique Mears //

Due to a disappointing decision we had no choice but to release the most recent draft of the film because some of the vision being posted without our notice. But hey, Cheers to the big cats. “What the fuck is Runamuk Visuals anyway?!” My dad taught me to be a gentleman, but I’m shocked at how things can play out when you do things right by people. My kindness is not a weakness. I need a beer.
5 years ago Bryce asked if I could help him put something together from a pile of old vision that his Mum and a few friends had shot, I was psyched… Then life and all it’s bullshit got in the way, and when it comes to ‘love jobs’ you gotta wait ’til the the time is right. The last 5 days proved to be the right time and a short film titled, Gathering Dust has now come to life. The word ‘Favourite’ is kinda wack, but there’s no other way to put it, the way Bryce goes about riding so many different crafts, and the control, grace and style he has blows my mind. If you are in the Noosa area, come watch it premiere tomorrow night the 7th of March at the Thomas Surfboards x Captain Sip Sop’s party or stay tuned as the full 16 minute film drops next week
