The Storm Chaser is a new short film from writer/director Jack Pirie. The film follows storm-chasing legend Thomas Traversa as he embarks on a perilous journey in search of a mythical storm, the likes of which the world has never witnessed.

Thomas is known for his big wave adventures and releasing great films. For this film the Frenchman teamed up with UK based director Jack Pirie. The outcome is a great mix of a documentary-fiction film which shows the deep bond between Thomas and nature.
