Jack Pirie: "The Storm Chaser is a new short film from writer/director Jack Pirie. The film follows storm-chasing legend Thomas Traversa as he embarks on a perilous journey in search of a mythical storm, the likes of which the world has never witnessed.

We shot most of the windsurfing footage over three days with a crew of just four people, mostly around Northern Spain. Much like the themes of the film itself, production was a constant and humbling game of chess, waiting for the moment when the weather was ready to give us what we needed (a Producer’s worst nightmare). Pierre Bouras, the legendary (and superhuman) Jetski driver, was given the task of riding alongside Thomas with the cameraman Jamie Hancock (windsurfing cinematographer) clutching on the back, skirting the edges of 14+ ft high waves trying to avoid being devoured, and capturing tiny moments of Thomas in flow."
