If you're not privy to the name Emmett Malloy, let this be an introduction to one of the best right now behind the lens. He got his start working for legendary surf filmmaker Taylor Steele and has branched out to all walks of life. Creator of surf films like A Broke Down Melody, Thicker Than Water, and 180-Degrees South, Malloy has some serious music video credentials as well: The White Stripes, Metallica, Jack Johnson, Vampire Weekend, Blink-182, and more. And he's also responsible for the gem that was Zach Galifianakis's first feature film, Out Cold.
Recently though, Malloy has been doing sports pieces. Did you see that new Lebron James/Nike commercial that aired at the beginning of the NBA season? Yup, that was Malloy. And he also spent the summer with reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant working on an HBO documentary entitled, The Offseason: Kevin Durant.
Monster Children recently had a great interview with Malloy about his breadth of work and getting to spend a summer with KD (which can be read here). Check out the promo below and catch it on HBO now.
