I was up late last night browsing Patagonia’s blog, The Cleanest Line. My 1:00am web surfing session paid off when I came across one of the most inspiring and beautifully shot short films I’ve seen, ever. Mickey Smiths, Darkside Of The Lens has won more than a handful of awards including Best short at the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival and Best Cinematography at the 5Point Film Festival in 2011. “I never set out to become anything in-particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience through adventure and through passion” A surf film? Yes, but so much more. Enjoy. Kyle FitzPatrick is a photographer and editor for OMM. In-between time spent behind the lens or in front of a computer you can find him surfing, skating, dabbling…well, doing all sorts of stuff.
