‘A Deeper Shade Of Blue’ - Screening on 28th March 2013 across the US for one night only

Jack McCoy’s surf film ‘A Deeper Shade Of Blue’ premiered last year at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. The documentary tells the history of surfing and will be screened for one night only on Thursday 28th March in 400 cinemas across 47 of the 50 states in the US.

During the editing of the film Jack put one of his surfing sequences to the song ‘Is This Love?’ from The Fireman album ‘Electric Arguments’. A mutual friend, Chris Thomas, saw the footage while visiting McCoy in Australia and on his return to the UK gave Paul a copy of the sequence.

Paul thought Jack’s images would be suitable for the then unreleased track “Blue Sway” and so McCoy compiled and edited footage filmed off Tahiti's Teahupoo reef to create what became the ‘Blue Sway’ video. See the final result below:



The special ‘Blue Sway’ video, directed by Paul and Jack, will be screened alongside the film ‘A Deeper Shade Of Blue’ which also features The Fireman on the soundtrack. Other musicians featured in the film include Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Iggy Pop and Jack Johnson.

Jack has told us the film is for, “Anyone from 8 - 80 years old, male or female, families... Everyone!”. For your chance to catch the music video and film on the big screen, get your tickets HERE!

‘Blue Sway’ was released on ‘McCartney II’ in 2011 as part of the Paul McCartney Archive Collection. Fans can get their copy from Amazon and iTunes.
