The School Teacher Who Makes Surf Films

Nathan Oldfield is a name you might not know. His day job is teaching primary school, but his passion is making independent surf films, which he’s done for over a decade, and won numerous awards for. A mere peek at his work through the film trailers reveals a lot of heart. Oldfield obviously has deep affection for the people, the places, the sea and the sport that he captures. Some of the titles to his name are Intimasea, The Involvement Dream, Stillbirth and Surfing, and Gathering. His most recent creation, The Church of the Open Sky, is now out on Vimeo on-Demand. Spare some time to watch the 3-minute trailer, which in itself is an evocative little gem.
