There aren’t many A-listers out today who can appear alongside Will Ferrel one moment, star as a lovable tramp in a musical the next, and subsequently go on to narrate what is being called “the greatest surf film ever made”. John C. Reilly just so happens to be an individual of this caliber. But View From a Blue Moon isn’t about him,no, not in the least. He is merely an interesting footnote in this spectacular epic that now occupies the place of the most expensive surf movie ever made. Shot entirely on Phantom 4K video cameras that range in price from $74K-120K a piece, and employing a fleet of ariel crafts, View From a Blue Moon is worth every penny. In this exclusive sit-down with VICE Sports, professional surfer John John Florence comments on the challenging aspects of shooting a film of such magnitude and intricacy.
