Separate Volume Premiere
The world premiere of Oakley’s surf film, Separate Volume, went off on the Gold Coast of Australia coinciding with the launch of the 2006 WCT. Twin Towns Theatre packed in over 500 Oakley retailers, media, surfers, industry honchos and assorted friends to take in the premiere screening and damage a massive bar tab. Oakley surfers including Tom Whitaker, Chris Ward, Dustin Barca, Brian Conley, Nathan Fletcher, Adam Melling, Brent Dorrington, David Weare and Adriano De Souza were all in attendance.
After an intro from Tracks editor, Sean Doherty, the movie rolled to rapturous applause and hoots. The feedback on Separate Volume from those in attendance was phenomenal. Everyone commented on the quality of filming, editing and music. The consensus was that Separate Volume pushes boundaries in surf movie making and will become a benchmark production.
