PATA HANDPLANES, a short documentary on Robby Schaubroeck
Client: Personal project

Handplanes make you feel like an underwater torpedo. It brings you back to the early days of surfing or even to your first surf sessions when you were just a kid using your own body as the only sliding surface.
I spent a while in the island of Fuerteventura, and there I bumped into Robby, a belgian settled in the island who's been making handcrafted handplanes from recycled pallet wood for a while now.

The film was selected for screening on 'Save The Waves' film festival on its 2017 edition.
