Beyond Sight the Movie – Two weeks before Bryan Jennings traveled to Rio, Brazil with 3X World Champion Tom Curren, He watched a powerful youtube video produced by Bruno Productions about a blind surfer who surfed pipeline. “I was absolutely amazed and inspired.” Derek Rabelo, the blind surfer from that video is from Brazil and was scheduled to be a special guest at the Walking On Water movie outreach in Rio, Brazil. The day after the event, Bryan, Derek and the other special guests from the movie outreach, Tom Curren, Damien Hobgood and Lakey Peterson all went surfing together. Each were amazed at Derek’s ability to surf despite being blind but were even more touched by his Character and Faith in Jesus Christ.
“What I didn’t know, at the time,” Bryan shares, “was that God had a bigger plan as always. I met Bruno Lemos and his very special Bruno Productions film crew who were already working on Derek’s movie and we began to talk about partnering up to make a movie about Derek. When I returned home from Brazil I could not stop thinking about Derek and his powerful testimony. God then made it very clear through some miraculous circumstances that Derek’s story would be our next Walking On Water film titled, BEYOND SIGHT and the theme of the movie would be based on 2 Corinthians 5:7 which says, “We are to live by faith, NOT by sight.” We have teamed up with Bruno Productions who created the original youtube video of Derek to produce this movie Beyond Sight.
The Beyond Sight Movie Production and Team
The Beyond Sight production is off to a great start! Derek arrived in California in July and since then we have had an incredible time filming the Beyond Sight movie. During his stay we have miraculously been able to film with Kelly Slater, Rob Machado, Tom Curren, Damien Hobgood, Laird Hamilton, Coco Ho, and Lakey Peterson. Surfer Magazine had “Slater Leads The Blind” story as their top story all week (http://www.surfermag.com/features/slater-leads-the-blind/). The San Diego Union Tribune also did a great article about Derek (http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/jul/27/seeing-through-blind-surfer/).
