- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
In the 1960's, a group of Beverly Hills eighth graders helped define the Southern California surf sound. The New Dimensions are the most influential surf band you've never heard of. Their four instrumental LPs provided the backbeat to surf music. The New Dimensions were the unsung heroes of surf music, well known among musicians but almost forgotten to history. The film not only highlights music greats such as Jimmy Greenspoon, a founding member of Three Dog Night and acclaimed music producer and composer, Michael Lloyd but also brings to light the meaning of true friendship, overcoming challenges, hope and second chances. After the death of keyboardist, Jimmy Greenspoon in 2015, the remaining members of The New Dimensions are reuniting to create a new CD. The Northern California Filmmakers Coalition was invited to document this event, which will culminate in a live concert performance. With unprecedented access to the biggest names in 1960s surf music, the documentary film "FULL CIRCLE" is nearing completion.
As an independently funded project, FULL CIRCLE has been a labor of love. But we firmly believe that this film has wide commercial potential. Surf culture is stronger than ever, as you most certainly know. For most people, the music and the story of The New Dimensions is unknown.
Some of the people appearing in this film include:
The Beach Boys
Edward J. Olmos
John Stamos (actor/"Full House)
Dean Torrance (Jan& Dean)
Kathy Kohner (the original Gidget)
Chuck Negron(Three Dog Night)
Bob Berryhill (of The Surfaris)
Martin Hall (under contract to Dick Clark)
Denny Tedesco (producer of the film:Wrecking Crew)
Will Glover (The Pyramids)
Bob Spickard (The Chanteys)
The film is slated to be released in June of 2018. Plans for distribution include both foreign and domestic markets including film festivals and television exhibition on Netflix, PBS, The Surf Channel, National Geographic Channel and more.
FULL CIRCLE is about more than nostalgia. It tells the full story of 1960s surf rock in the voices of the people who were there. We hope that you will join us and become part of this remarkable journey.
