Surf's Up: The Art and Making of a True Story

by ,

"Surf's Up," the latest CG-animated feature film from Sony Pictures Animation, is based on the "true story" of up-and-coming surfer Cody Maverick. The film follows Cody as he enters his first professional surf competition. Inspired by the legendary wave rider Big Z, Cody leaves his family and hometown of Shiverpool, Antarctica to travel to Pen Gu Island for the Big Z Memorial Surf Contest. Cody believes that fame and fortune will bring him the admiration and respect he craves, but when he meets a washed-up old surfer named Geek, Cody begins to understand that the greatest champion isn't always the one who comes in first. Get an inside look at the making of this incredible film in "Surf's Up: The Art and Making of a True Story," which is packed with a wealth of extras, including a DVD that details the digital image-making process, a teaser movie poster, a booklet on "Building a Digital Wave," vintage surfer postcards, a surfbook bookmark, and a commemorative "Pen Gu Times newspaper." Starring Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges, Zooey Deschanel, Jon Heder, James Woods, Mario Cantone, Deidrich Bader, Jane Krakowski, and Mindy Sterling, "Surf's Up" is directed by Ash Brannon ( "Toy Story 2" ) and Chris Buck ( "Tarzan" ). Sony Pictures Consumer Products and Insight Editions have partnered to create two incredible previous books, "The Art of Open Season" and "The Art & Making of Monster House" . "Animation Magazine"'s rave review observed that Insight Editions and Sony "have raised the bar for movie tie-ins!" Hide synopsis
