Award winning filmmaker Jack McCoy invites you to enjoy an evening of stoke with his stories as a director, cinematographer, photographer and producer at a one night only special event in Coffs Harbour.
This pic represents around about the time I started to take notice of this future legend. I was working with Billabong when Gordon Merchant and Vince Lawder came up with this idea to run some Jr contests for a couple of reasons. First was to help promote up and coming kids, Jr’s surfing. Secondly to give Vince and a few others including myself a chance to have a look at who the talent was.
Vince had a knack for picking the best and it wasn’t long before he was telling me he had found two of the coolest kids. Dave Rastovich and Joel Parkinson.
When they were about 15 I took them on a trip down the coast around Port.
A couple of years later I took them down to the South Coast for another shoot and it was on that trip I began to start thinking about making a film around them.
The untold oral history of what evolved and eventuated after Rasta and Joel’s grommet-hood will be revelled at our TWIN TOWNS date Friday June 21. I’ll also be havin’ a good ‘talk story’ with Oc.
It’s sure to be something unlike anything you’ve ever experience. I promise.
Hope to see you there.
