Body Glove’s The Disappearance
For the past three years TransWorld Surf’s Imagiunarium contest has set the challenge to conceptualize and produce a unique and creative photo submission, which appears in their November issue. The photos represent the short video that is also submitted. TransWorld then chooses a winner from the three surf teams involved, which is featured on the cover of that November issue.
Last year, Body Glove took the honors of Best Video Award and Readers Choice Award at the 2011 Imaginarium against Reef, Billabong and Rusty with their 8-Bit entry. This year the teams, including Von Zipper and Sunuk, have all stepped it up and made the best videos yet. Body Glove is extremely proud of their 2012 submission, The Disappearance, which includes surfers Jamie O’Brien, Anthony Walsh, Alex Gray, and Cheyne Magnusson, and are hoping to take the win for the 2nd year in a row.
The Disappearance follows a group of four professional surfers and six filmmakers on what should have been the ultimate surf trip to the jungles of Indonesia but quickly became an excursion into heart-stopping terror. As the group discovers a perfect, secret wave, strange images begin to appear on film. Are they sharks, alligators, or something else? Fear sets in. Accusations fly. By night, unseen evil stirs beyond their campfire’s light. By day, large animal prints are discovered nearby. Members of the crew begin to disappear one by one. As the end of their journey approaches, they realize that what they are filming is not an epic trip but their own descent into unimaginable horror.
This is the footage found on the multiple hard drives and cameras recovered at the destroyed campsite. The disappearance of the eight adventurers is still under investigation. Two survivors have been questioned repeatedly and continue to tell investigators strange stories of a sea creature. Search and rescue has finally reached the remote jungle campsite, but contact has been lost as of this press release. All attempts to establish contact with the search party have gone unsuccessful.
