Join us for the Santa Barbara premiere of On the Edge of A Dream, a new film and book by Ellis Ericson and Andrew Kidman, featuring titling and artwork by Barry McGee. Chronicling the process of developing a new surfboard design alongside surfing legend - and Santa Barbara native - George Greenough, the film is an intimate look into the shaping community in Australia and the quest to create the perfect board.
For the past five years, Ericson and Kidman - both of whom are shapers - have been working with Greenough on the modern evolution of his Edge Board design. The book and film charts their journey as they collaborate with Greenough to personalize their equipment with a design he has been working on since the late ‘60s. Shot in Australia on the North Coast of New South Wales, the film features the original venues of Lennox Head and Angourie where Greenough’s innovative Edge designs were tested in the early ‘70s.
Discounted ticket rates are available for MCASB Members and students. Please bring your Member or student card to the screening.
The filmmakers will be on-hand to sign copies of the book during the event, with MCASB’s galleries open late to the public.
