Maybe you’ve been directed to this site by a video you’ve seen. Maybe you are here because you clicked a link on a web page about aliens, government conspiracies, or a small local radio station that produces a show about the stars. Maybe you were sent here by a friend or a family member or a complete stranger. Maybe you haven’t been directed here at all. Perhaps it’s all by chance that you have happened upon this site, on this day, at this exact moment in time. Nevertheless: you are here now, and you are supposed to be here.

Because what you will find here is the truth.

Ride the wave.

Waves is a feature film that is comprised of two short-form offerings entitled Airwaves and Soundwaves from award-winning directors Tom Galang and Domonic Smith. These films will resolve independently of one another, but will compliment and when played back-to-back will create a full-length feature film.

Airwaves is the story of a woman, Annie Burch, who serves as the program director of a radio show revolving around extraterrestrials, conspiracy theories, and a general curiosity about the far reaches of space called Under The Stars. As she is researching topics for the next time the show airs, she stumbles upon a phenomenon that has been documented around the globe: these industrial, whining, metallic sounds coming from the sky. While there are many theories about where these sounds come from, there is no concrete answer. As Annie strives to get closer to the truth, a disturbing phone call to the station begins a chain of events that will change her life forever.

Soundwaves is the tale of theoretical-physicist John Maynard(sp) who works at the ARCH (Advanced Research of Conduit Harmonics) Agency. John is tapped by ARCH to complete his father’s research which centered around nuclear fusion and the effects of nuclear weapons. Things aren’t always as they appear at ARCH, and as John struggles with the ethics and morality behind his research, he also contemplates how to expose ARCH. John makes a decision that not only affects his life, but the world as we know it.

Genesis of the Story:
The development of Waves began some months ago as directors Tom Galang and Domonic Smith worked together on a short film for National Film challenge. They had both been wanting to film something based around these strange sounds in the sky and a phone call which was placed to the Art Bell radio show Dark Matter. As they discussed their ideas, it became apparent they could each do a short film utilizing these two elements and tell different stories that worked in conjunction with each other, despite resolving independently of one another and create a larger work for their first feature film.

Why $15,000?:
To effectively produce a film, most Hollywood studios and even independently produced feature films require budgets that reach well into the millions. This is so the cast and crew can be paid for their services and so that things like props, wardrobe, set design etcetera will be accounted for and produced at extremely high quality, but also at high cost.

For this film, we are asking for $15,000.00 with the understanding that everyone who is working on this film, the cast, crew, marketing team, etc. will be donating their time and efforts for no monetary benefit whatsoever during production, but in order to be a part of something that we are all passionate about as well as be a part of something that will change the face of the film industry.

Every cent of these donations will go towards the production of this film, and the more financial backing we get, the better this film will be. We will use these funds for the following:
-Set design
-Camera rentals and lens rentals
-Special and visual effects
-Film festival entries
-Marketing materials and perks
-Scoring of the film
-Sound design
-Audio equipment rental such as mics and boom poles
