The remarkable story of transgender surf champion Westerly Windina premieres on Nowness.
As a director of commercials and music videos, Alan White has won every major international advertising award including Cannes Lions, CLIO’s, and was the first director to win an Emmy for an ‘Outstanding TV Commercial’. He has worked with clients such as the NFL, Maserati, Mercedes, Volkswagen and Nike.
His latest film ‘Reclaim’ for Lionsgate, is a drama thriller staring John Cusack and Ryan Phillipe . His feature length documentary ‘Becoming Westerly’, which recently premiered on Nowness, chronicles surf icon Peter Drouyn and his controversial transformation into Westerly Windina.
Hailing from Hoboken New Jersey, home of Frank Sinatra and The Feelies, Homer Hudson found himself abandoned by a sceptical client. Reluctant to give up on his brain child, John Curran approached Alan White in the hope that somehow Homer would grace Australian shores.
