Chasing the Sun
                 An Introduction to Naturism

A Film by Edin Velez

     The Naturist Education Foundation produced Chasing the Sun to introduce community leaders to naturists and their values. More and more people are requesting a clothing-optional beach close to home. Naturists thus need contemporary tools to help legislators and business leaders understand why naturist settings on public lands can serve local and regional interests.

     Directed and filmed by acclaimed videographer and educator Edin Velez, Chasing the Sun: An Introduction to Naturism is an 18-minute video made with non-naturist community leaders in mind. Without trying to convince anyone to try naturism themselves, Chasing the Sun uses Velez's exquisite camerawork, national polls, interviews with naturists and non-naturist civic leaders, and simple, straightforward reasoning to make the case that a clothing-optional beach or park would be a valuable addition to most any community.

     Some of the video footage for Chasing the Sun comes from Velez's Skinny-Dipper series of videos, produced for The Naturist Society in the 1980s. Velez selected video segments that accurately represented sites and naturists as found in the 2000s, and added new footage he and Kelly Anderson collected at the 2002 TNS Eastern Naturist Gathering held at Eastover Resort in Lennox, Massachusetts.

     Storey wrote the script in early 2002, and Velez edited the video that same year and into early 2003. The Naturist Education Foundation released Chasing the Sun for distribution in July 2003.
