Patagonia presents… ’Two Weeks Online Film Premiere’

Two Weeks, the heartfelt film experience by Byron Bay Filmmaker and Surfer Johnny Abegg (On Credit), is set to make its online debut as a free release through Vimeo and Youtube on May 1st. The premier is presented by Patagonia Australia, an ethical company that supports those with a love of wild and beautiful places.

After a Nine-Stop National Tour in late 2010, and a recent festival screening at the Byron Bay Film Festival, the choice to go digital for Two Weeks final release is a ‘move with the times’ according to Abegg; “Video is going digital, and DVD’s are becoming obsolete, so an online release is the best way to engage a wider audience”, Abegg says.

The 20-min Directors Cut will be viewable on May 1st (7pm) here:

Two Weeks has been applauded for it’s honesty and insight into the world of Abegg, for a bold attempt to capture the thoughts and realisations whilst being alone in the Tasmanian wilderness, during a period of unhappiness and confusion on approach to his 29th birthday. “Those two weeks alone in the wilderness were the toughest, yet most rewarding of my life”, Johnny says. “I hope through my testing experience, it allows others to see themselves through me, and realise they too are not alone in this world.”

Surfing legend Rusty Miller sums up the experience;
“Two Weeks touches on many of the essential questions many of us should be asking of ourselves, making you think and hopefully act!

An additional option to donate to non-profit grassroots activists Still Wild, Still Threatened, will be available upon release, aligning itself with the Patagonia ethos to give back to the planet from which we take so much.

For those who want the whole experience, the full-length limited edition Two Weeks book and dvd is available here.

Stay tuned for updates from this blog and the Patagonia website

Two shows and the wild wilderness. To return home. After two years in the making, to bring this film home was a beautiful moment for me. Mikey (M. Jack Bee) got to see Tasmania for the first time. A wonderful experience. Click here for more photos and checkout the video’s Mikey did from Tassie below!

M. Jack Bee in Torquay last night...

Thanks to Patagonia and all the friendly faces who came down to Surfworld Theatre for another fantastically warm show. Checkout the road-trip video below!

Pro-Surfer Brad Gerlach was there and summed up the experience…

“Two Weeks is the real deal. Without fear of exposure, Abegg is committed and vulnerable. Alone in the Tasmanian forest he asks the questions that ultimately bring himself back to his true nature. An important film for anyone who is unhappy with the status quo”.



Thanks Until Never, The Espy next…
