A State of Play follows surfer Drew McPherson and photographer Nathan Henshaw from their home town on the east coast of Australia to the remote desert coast in search of waves. This film explores the idea of staying in a state of play, retaining a childlike curiosity and stoke that youth brings. This film is a unique exhibit of light, oceanic elements and celebrates what many surfers spend their whole life chasing.
