Film + Book Tour

Thanks for all the support so far with the plastic project film and book, it’s been pretty amazing on a number of levels. I am in the process of putting together the tour for film alone and film/exhibition combo. The exhibition is obviously a very important part of The Plastic Project as photography is the catalyst for the project, so I will take it to as many stops as possible.

The film will be available online later in the year, but it will be only available freely to schools and people who have backed the project, we want to give something back to everyone who has helped beyond simply books and prints etc.

The film is going to to tour globally, and we’ll add dates as we raise the funds to be able to make that happen, at the moment we have two confirmed dates for showings. –

24th August – Glasgow, 7.30pm @ For Fika Sake


9th September – Riverside Cinema, Woodbridge, 2pm.


We have a couple of London dates which are just being finalised and then it looks like we will be heading to Falmouth, Newquay, Polzeath, North Devon, Exeter, Plymouth, Bristol, Portrush, Edinbrigh and Thurso in the UK. Dublin, Bundoran and Lahinch in Ireland.

Will be adding more to these.

The Film

The film is shot in France, Scotland, Iceland and Norway with dispatches from The Maldives, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Australia, British Virgin isles, Ireland, South Africa, The Azores, California, Hawaii and Cornwall. It is a mix of cold water surf adventure and plastic discovery as we reach out to see through the eyes of surfers what is really going on on our remote beaches.

If you’d like to put on a showing of the film drop me a line –

The Book/Exhibition

The book and accompanying exhibition are even more comprehensive having been shot in England, Ireland, Scotland, Norway, Iceland and France and go into even more depth with a myriad of surfers, both professional and local, in some of the best waves you will have ever seen from each of the countries.


When I started this I never really wanted to get into fundraising beyond the initial bit we needed to get site working and educational programme rolling. However I have been asked to take the film exhibition to so many places it seems silly not try and make it happen. We need to raise £6000, and we have had some incredible donations to get it down to this already as well as some of our sponsors. It’s a big ask, and we’ll take this as far as we can afford.

    Hello. I am a sixth grade teacher and teach the human impact on Earth and would like to know if someone in your organization would like to Skype with my class once or once a month, just for ten to fifteen minutes per Skype. You could tell them about your goals and how they could help you achieve it and hopefully answer some of their directions. We are in California, US. Please contact me if this is something we could arrange.
