Roving movie trio DAYUMM, Vacation Forever and Island Born are tearing around the continent at the moment, and while we didn’t make it down to the usual London stop to catch up with the action, a new temporary office over in Innsbruck meant we were able to slow down this crazy train of film premieres just long enough to hitch a ride for a bit.
In attendance at the Austrian stop we had many of the same faces from the three films, Kevin Backstrom, Tor Lundstrom, Sebbe De Buck, Ulrik Badertscher and David Djite from BYND x MDLS‘ Vacation Forever. Then Sage Kotsenburg and Halldor Helgason from DAYUMM, and of course Eiki Helgason, joined by YOBEAT’s Justin ‘Stan’ Leveille who picked up where Scott Penman left off in London – presenting the evening as well as acting as a comic intermediary on screen in the Island Born flick…
The latter of which was undoubtedly was the curve ball of the three movies. Stan does his best Louie Theroux impression while we hear a tongue in cheek backstory from the older of the Helgason brothers: farmland, sheep shearing and skate roots, not forgetting some brotherly rivalry – all laced with a tone that could appear serious if your sarcasm detection sensors weren’t firing properly.
