Breaking Wave Documentary available online
Alrighty folks – here it is , the documentary completed and online to view – complete part 1-4, the whole thing, the Breaking Wave from beginning to burning.

Thiis project represents (in what I feel) is the spirit of the Vancouver Burners to produce a piece of epic art, have the intestinal fortitude to bring it down to the Black Rock Playa and to have the drive, focus, force, motivation and follow through to build it in one of the most difficult places on earth – then to let it go to burn.   To bring a piece of BC (and Japan) across international boarders and three state lines over mountains, through valleys to take the ocean to the desert.

Hopefully this inspires you to do your own art at BRC or get onboard with someone elses project
and to the Breaking Wave Crew – you’ve raised the bar baby
