DEAN GOES SURFING

Directed by
Caitlyn Greene

Meet Dean, a teenage boy who loves breakfast, Rihanna, and finding freedom in waves.

Dean Goes Surfing is a film centered around a most irresistible character, Dean, whose humour and spirit carry us with him up to his favourite event: surfingwithsmiles. Surfing with smiles is an organisation which gives people with special needs and abilities the chance to have fun together and surf for free. Director Caitlyn Greene describes the team's love for the entire process, particularly for its main protagonist: "We knew going in that we wanted the piece to be uplifting and have personality without being overly sentimental. We also wanted the piece to reflect Dean’s spirit and the feeling of the surfing event, which was full of love and unbridled happiness. The founders of Surfing with Smiles helped us find Dean, who we immediately fell in love with! The event is incredible, and certainly one of the most joyful days I've witnessed. The whole crew left feeling totally inspired."
