April 23rd - 25th, 2009
Belgrade premiere of the first-ever wakeboard film, Hypnose, will be the reason for the gathering of fans of extreme sports at O3ONE, from the 23rd – 25th April 2009. During this time Rope team will present a selection of photographs taken by HiiShii studio during the sixty days of filming, as well as paintings (oil on canvas, acrylic) by the leading Rope designer, Dejan Simić. Hypnose is the first international wakeboard film produced entirely in Serbia. It was shot in Antalya, at Hypnotics cable during the autumn of 2008. It consists of four parts and each of those parts presents a different rider. Presented riders are the leading wakeboarders who not only are officially champions (winners of the World, European, Asian championships…) but also have their own, unique style of riding which has moved the limits of the sport a bit further yet again. By combining the feature parts of the film with animation into the classic wakeboard structure, Rope made a completely new vision of the genre.
Postproduction and animation were done by the Fried Pictures Studios and Art Division Studio from Belgrade.
