||In 1995 Jon Frank and Andrew Kidman embarked on a Journey. They documented their travels and when they returned home, they made Litmus.
Nominated in five categories at the 1998 Surfer Video Awards, including Best Video.
"I knew I wanted to make Litmus, though I'm still not really sure why. It still has a purity about it, like the simple act surfing with a friend or playing a song in a room to yourself" says Andrew Kidman.
"One of my favourite sequences in 'Litmus' is the one with Tom Curren. He surfs in his home waters to his own guitar playing - guitar playing we recorded during a backyard jam in Victoria. I think it's a really unique and special thing, and really shows off what a gifted human Tom is." -Andrew Kidman
"I wish that when they asked us: 'What is surfing?' I would have said it's a spiritual activity, and no just a sport, because that's what put us on the wrong track." - Nat Young, 1966 World Surfing Champion
"One of the most fascinating surf videos to come along in quite a while. Anyone with half a brain or taste for something different will enjoy." -Ben Marcus, Surfer Magazine
"The Riders, the boards, the places, the ruminations...Litmus was easily the finest srf film of it's decade." -Scott Hulet, The Surfer's Journal
