The Northern California Filmmakers Coalition (NCFC)’s latest project is a feature-length documentary about surf music pioneers,  ‘The New Dimensions’. In the 1960's, a group of Beverly Hills eighth graders helped define the Southern California surf sound. The New Dimensions were the most influential surf band you've never heard of. Their four instrumental LPs provided the backbeat to surf music. They were the unsung heroes of the surf sound.

‘Full Circle’ (The Story of the New Dimensions) features interviews with surf music legends like The Beach Boys, Dean Torrance of Jan & Dean, The Ventures, as well as members of Three Dog Night, The Surfaris and acclaimed actor and filmmaker, Edward J. Olmos. The film is set to hit the festival circuit in 2018.
