“Yeah, yeah, Dubai was sick. No, I’m home in Australia now, but we fly into LA tomorrow. Then we’ll get a flight and meet you in Milan.” Those words came out of Beren’s mouth the other day. We heard them. But he’s not an oil tycoon or a trust funder, he’s a motherfucking hustler with a camera. Beren learned to film just a few years ago basically as a ploy to travel full-time with his best friend Dion Agius. Since then he’s contributed to most of the best projects in surf cinema. Beren is also a manager, lover and friend, polite and pleasant at all times, and he looks a lot like Russell Crowe if Russel Crowe were more perfect. What Youth is excited to work closely with Beren. He’s a rare man. He is youth on the run.
