The Fall Guy

Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt are being silly in a film take of the ‘80s television series: The Fall Guy. He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy, and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?

DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY, DAVE HOMCY

Born and raised in Florida, Dave Homcy moved to Hawaii to follow his passion for surf cinematography and photography. After twenty years in the film business, working on notable projects such as “Shelter”, “A Broke Down Melody”, and the TV show “Lost”, Dave continues to live the dream, travelling around the world with like-minded surfers, experiencing different cultures.

Dave is well known to Byron Bay International Film Festival, and friends in the local surf scene. A recent project, El Mar Mi Alma was made locally, with local Director Stephen Jones and Producer Tatiana Velasco from Lennox Head, and premiered here in 2011, his surf film Sliding Liberia won our Best Surf Film award at BBFF 2008, and he cut his teeth working alongside BBFF patron Paul Cox on Paul’s 1999 movie Molokai.
