Prominent Surf Cinematographer to be disassociated with Globe film project citing breach of contract and Globe’s misrepresentation of inten


LOS ANGELES--Veteran cinematographer Sonny Miller of Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA alleges that Globe International is potentially liable for the unauthorized use of his film footage and the manipulation of images in a deceptive manner in the Apparel and Footwear Manufacturer’s upcoming new surf film.

Miller seeks to block the use of any of his work and wants to be completely disassociated with the project and Globe as a whole. He also requests public acknowledgment that Globe is using advanced technologies to “synthesize” surf cinematography.

Miller is a world renown cinematographer and Surf filmmaker having shot and directed films such as "Searching for Tom Curran" and “all aboard the Crazy Train.” "Surf filmmaking is supposed to be about travel, adventure, and an organic experience with the ocean,” says Miller. "What they are doing is clever, but it isn’t real surf filmmaking. It’s Fake.”

Southern California-born-and-raised Miller, a well-known and celebrated surf industry figure, was initially hired by Globe to shoot its forthcoming surf release and in the process learned of the brand’s intent to make the film in ways he found inappropriate. When it was revealed to Miller what Globe’s intents were for the film, he disengaged himself from the project and is now seeking to block any use of his footage for this purpose.


Miller, whose surf filmography spans three decades, is arguably one of the most successful Surf Cinematographers and Filmmakers of his generation. In addition to being one of the surf culture's most celebrated and respected lensman, Miller is a highly sought after Hollywood cinematographer, performing camera duties for some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
