When Jeremy Koreski started Shrink 4 years ago he was riding the high of having just released his first surf film Numb.

Confident with this success he hit the beaches and wild frontier with the vision to truly capture and express the intensity of what it is to be a surfer in the Pacific Northwest.

Embodying these elements would of course be his childhood friends Raph Bruhwiler, Sepp Bruhwiler and Peter Devries. By showcasing these true Tofino surfers Jeremy would be able to share what a life focused on surfing in this frigid and extreme environment is like. Shrink thus became a documentary of sorts, following these boys from their childhoods on Chestermans beach to their developing careers which has taken them to surf breaks around the world. Also caught through the lenses was the lifestyle of these Tofitians that is close to the elements and in touch with nature. Foraging for fresh seafood, skirting bears and witnessing incredible wildlife. Shrink becomes as much of a showcase of Vancouver Islands natural wonders as its surf breaks.

Half way through the filming of Shrink Jeremy lost interest, tending to concentrate on shooting stills. Still photography is his first love and is still his favourite.

Shrink had become way more of a project than Numb had ever been. Just as everyone, including Jeremy thought that the project may have been lost a new wave of energy and determination came into the project.

Jeremy enlisted the help of Kuan-Jian Foo to help with the editing and overall production of the film. Kuan-Jian brought incredible technical skills and an artistic nuance to the project and the two together made a team that could re-invigorate the project.

This October Shrink debuted to a packed house at the Tofino Legion on a Saturday night. The room was abuzz with anticipation and was not disappointed with the show. Shrink captivated the crowd from start to finish, intertwining fast action sequences, personal profiles, archival footage, powerful stills and a pump'n sound track.
