Sound On The Shore
The Shorties: Sound on the Shore // A film by CJ Mirra
From kaleidoscopic artist, producer and composer CJ Mirra: This film shot entirely on super8 film while travelling and recording the sound for other films with director Chris McClean (Edges of Sanity).
The camera came on three trips over two years and I got the chance to capture the sonic highlights and some heavy sessions from my perspective from camp and on the shore. Surfer, Noah Lane jumps in on the north coast of Scotland and gets out on the west coast of Ireland.
I developed the film in a cupboard at home and badly messed up the process. The results are better than I’d hoped and cut together to a new soundtrack and hyped recordings from the locations.
Featuring: Noah Lane and Sand Kerr
Sound & Vision: CJ Mirra / Colour8 Records

Short films are a central pillar of modern surf culture, a creative outlet for sharing stories and inspiring stoke. Here at the London Surf / Film Festival presented by REEF we wanted to celebrate the short and give homegrown filmmaking talent a platform to bring their visions to the surf world so we established ‘The Shorties’ which has fast become one of the most prestigious short film competitions for surf filmmakers in the world.
While the main festival is a showcase for international filmmaking, The Shorties short film contest is open exclusively to filmmakers from or based in Britain and Ireland – from both leading lights and up and coming filmmakers. The very best short films entries on the big screen as part of the festival and these shortlisted films are eligible for prestigious awards including: Shortie of the Year and Emerging Talent.
7th Annual London Surf / Film Festival is hosted 19 – 21 October at Regent St Cinema, London.
