“Pickled” the movie, in 35 mm and over a year in the making, will roll-out this June. The flick features Billabong’s elite — Shane Dorian, Occy, Taj Burrow, Benji Weatherly, Luke Egan, Donavon Frankenreiter, Joel Parkinson, Brian Pacheco, and Rast — with a special guest appearance by Robert Earl. High Voltage Productions’ Jamie Mosberg is producing the movie.
To promote the upcoming movie, Billabong has just launched pickled.tv, which will provide a sampler of what’s in store for the movie, plus games and other interactive features for the groms such as a competition where the users can create their own cover designs based on material provided for the movie. Additionally, pickled.tv has a slew of Quicktime sequences, which will allow groms to produce their very own short-length film. Awards will be given to the winners of the best cover design and Quicktime movie.
Pickled.tv was created by Juxt Interactive, which was recently commissioned to write a book on the next level of Flash design.
“This has been a super human effort by all parties concerned,” says Billabong U.S.A. VP of Marketing Graham Stapelberg. “We are looking at breaking new ground with the pickled.tv site.”
