FILM & TV
Creative Director (Film/TV/VR) | Writer | Producer
Angie was the Director, producer, and co-writer on The Laps TV. The first episode "The Laps: Tasmania" is currently playing on in-flight entertainment systems on Qantas, Jetstar, Singapore Airline, and TV channels and on-line streaming sites in multiple languages.
The episode follows Dustin Hollick and Rhian Slapp, two scruffy surfer dads from the East Coast of Australia, as they leave home to learn the secrets of a well-balanced life and aim to get back a connection with nature that has been lost with the advent of modern convenience.
On her first trip to Peru in 2014, Angie discovered the little town of Lobitos along the far north coast, struggling to rebuild after a century of oil extraction. Inspired by the dreams of local surfer Harold Koechlin and friends, Angie wanted to make a cinematic surf/travel film to raise awareness and funds for Lobitos to help direct its more sustainable future. The film succeeded in assisting the Peruvians in raising over $10,000 USD to conduct marine studies that were then presented to the Government, and in a historical decision in 2017, the surf breaks of Lobitos were added to Peru's national registry of protected waves.
The film premiered at the Santa Barbara International Surf Film Festival, and has since featured in festivals all around the world. Double Barrel has been distributed globally in multiple languages including in-flight and regular TV, online streaming, Amazon, Vimeo On Demand, Garage Entertainment, Edge TV, and more channels.
