The Coast Studio: Sauce Studio Interview

[First published on The Coast Studio, 8th April 2016] 



CAMILLA SAMPSON:  Hi boys, what have you been up to lately?

SAUCE STUDIO: Today we’re just taking it easy, the sun is out and we’re quite sore from a concert we went to last night. We finally got to see one of our all-time favourite bands, Thievery Corporation, play at The Enmore. If you don’t know Thievery Corporation I highly recommend giving them a listen. It will change your life.

CS: You work together as part of The Sauce. What, or rather who, is The Sauce?

SS: The Sauce is a group of friends creating cool stuff. Find us here:

CS: How did you guys first get into film and photography?

SS: We both just sort of fell into it from our family always having a camera or two lying around the house. We’d pick them up and start creating home videos and photos, and we just found we enjoyed it so much. 

CS: What sort of subject matter do you document? Does the coast inspire you?

SS: For sure, the coast definitely inspires our work. I mean some of us (The Sauce team) surf every day and are constantly surrounded by it. We just love all aspects of nature. I think we take everything around us as inspiration as we are a group and all like different things.

CS: You were in Indonesia at the end of 2015, what did you get up to there?

SS: It was more of a vacation really. But I (Tyler) also edited my latest surf movie, ‘ROBI,’ there, it was a good environment to do it in.

CS: What are you working on at the moment?

SS: We are just putting the final touches on a surf movie we have been working on for the last few months about a burrito. You can find it here.

We are also planning a few new music videos, and a campaign for our friends at Mere Footwear.

CS: Highlights of your careers so far…?

SS: Sitting sideways on a private jet.

CS: A dream location/person/subject…?

SS: The Simpsons.

CS: What are you doing when you’re not working?

SS: We enjoy most things in the sun like surfing, skateboarding, and the occasional bushwalk.

CS: Which other Sydney-siders/coast dwellers inspire you?

SS: We have lots of friends doing creative things. For us it is important to have people like that around you.

CS: Secret, or creative, or secret creative…passions besides film and photography?

SS: The fine art of making a gourmet pizza.

CS: And finally - any tips for aspiring video/photo-graphers?

SS: Do what you love and what makes you happy. If that results in making things you are stoked on then everything else will fall into place. 

CS: Link us up?!
