After two years, two world cup events, filming and many hours of communication, we were finally were able to have the privilege of showing the Dalua Downhill movie to a South African Audience for the first time.
Crowds gathering at the Iconic Labia Theatre in Cape Town
Retroyspective has been in communication with Zeppelin films the creators of Dalua Downhill since 2011 when we first supplied footage for the film, since then Zeppelin has has produced two versions of the movie, the first having to be amended as Dalua reached his goal in 2012. Once again we were there to capture the moment and supply aditional footage to the film, the scenes albeit short, really do ad to the crux of the story and make sure that this tale of speed and determination has the ending it deserves. A few shorts Including : Baboon Boards – riding Snow mountains, Mercedesbenz/Bring Back Choir Boy – Silver Slipstreams, Boardhub – Houwteq and HotHeels2012 were shown before the feature and very well received.
Retroyspective managed the logistics of the event and set up a special site for the screening, you can see more info on the movie and watch its trailer here http://retroyspective.co.za/daluadownhill/
