the vessel is infinity, a 120ft hand-built sailing ketch that plies the pacific ocean on a never ending voyage of nomadic exploration. this expedition was undertaken with a non-ice-reinforced gypsy boat built by hand in the 1970's, crewed by a band of wandering miscreants, with no permits or insurance and an almost non-existent budget. this is a story about sailing, the camaraderie of a shared struggle and the raw awe inspiring power of the natural world.

this was my first feature-length surround sound edit and mix. I had the pleasure of using disher sound’s incredible 7.1 surround sound facility and working directly with the director and editor on this mix.
