"The sheer talent of surfers charging big waves right now, matched with advancing safety technology, and innovations in board design have helped progress big wave surfing to heights that we couldn't imagine just a few years ago," said Ian Walsh. "This film offers people a really in-depth look and feel for what we as surfers' experience when trying to paddle into some of the biggest waves in the world." Distance Between Dreams captures the energy of big wave surfing and delivers it to viewers through vivid cinematography, and an immersive custom score by Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL. The Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum producer, musician, and composer mixed modern aesthetic and analog synthesizers to capture the essence of riding big waves with elegance and drama. "Trying to tell Ian's story was a tremendous learning experience for me," said Holkenborg. "Surfing is a dangerous, solitary and very noble pursuit. I think the majority of people are unaware of just how athletic guys like Ian are. The work he has to put in, in and out of the water is tremendous. The ocean is a magical place, but it's also dangerous. Capturing Ian's spirit and the dichotomy of his environment is what is at the heart of this score."
