So, What's It About? 

Drifting through a broken relationship, Walter is pulled into the undertow of his past by a forgotten childhood relic.

Time and experience has an uncanny way of tying themselves together to form the fabric of our lives.  It's not often are we taken out of that trance and woken up to the pattern we've unconsciously been reliving. What we look to explore is one man's ascension to that realm.

The beauty of this movie is that it taps into a vein that runs deep within all of us. A narrative about relationships, pressure points within them, and the resistance to let someone else in. 

What Makes "Waves" Worth Your Donation?


Production started way back in August of 2013, completely self-financed. All two thousand of it. Yup, you heard right, deep pockets over here guys. Limited resources aside, with our team of creative professionals we managed to film the script to completion ourselves. Woo!

With your support we would be only months from finishing the project. Which is good news to you as a contributor, no time between the campaign's finish and seeing the result of your donations.

That's right, now you might ask... "Why IndieGoGo then? Your finished!" Well, not exactly, we're here for your Post-Production Support.

Here it is, Folks. The big money breakdown:

Have you ever seen a film with bad audio? Probably not, since you would have stopped watching three seconds into it. We want to provide our audience with an incredible film experience and with that requires great sound. Professionally mixed audio costs a pretty penny, but with your contribution we have a chance for a sound mix so phenomenal that the journey we provide will be one to remember. 

Now, at the cusp of finishing our film, our main goal is getting the project viewed. The first step in this process is FESTIVAL FEES. We have a list of great events that we feel our project would be successful at, however they are not free. With your donation, "Waves" will have the opportunity to submit to a much wider audience than it would have had originally.

Festivals include: 

Sundance Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, AFI Film Fest, Slam Dance, LA Shorts Fest, NBC Shortcut Festival 

Now, on to the good part, WHAT YOU GET! For helping us out and being the awesome people that you are, we plan on giving you something in return.

  • Shout-out's and a Thank you's from the "Waves" Production Facebook.
  • Custom Stickers of the "Waves" Original Poster Artwork.
  • Uncut Soundtrack with 25+ minutes of an amazing score.
  • High Quality Prints of "Waves" Original Poster Artwork.
  • Associate Producer Credit in the Film.
  • Executive Producer Credit in the Film.
  • Invitation to the "Waves" Premiere and After-Party with Drinks on Us!

Who's Behind the Camera?

A group of passionate, motivated, and inspired individuals dedicating our spare time to practice what we love. Though some of the team is still in school, a majority of the crew are independent film professionals; supporting themselves by working from set to set. In the case of this film, they passed on their pay in exchange to make something that was meaningful to them. 

We love what we do and know it shows out in our work

In addition to that, this production isn't made in partner with any major institution or school. 100% Organic Home-Grown Ideas.

That's the thing, none of us aim to make money off of this project, we only seek to engage and explore a craft we love being a part of. It's just that with film, the paints and canvas cost a bit more.

How Does It All Add Up?

Who says that even a $5 donation could make a difference? WE DO!!!

This campaign is a testament to the DIY sensibility of the modern artist. To the kind of mindset that pushes itself forward with inspiration, hard work, and the collaboration of friends (INCLUDING YOU).

All that holds us back is the limited funding we can generate on our own. Luckily, crowd funding has become an increasingly valid source of revenue, which gives small artists like us a chance to be something more.

  • HELP US be that something more. 
  • HELP US grow and learn as budding artists.
  • HELP US prove that by coming together, we are part of something more powerful.

If you can't tell by now, we're pretty desperate.

So, You're Broke Just Like Us...

NO WORRIES!!! We totally understand. What we appreciate is the chance to be heard and seen. And you have just provided us that chance, so we can ask no more.... Or can we? The answer is YES, we can! Imagine that. All we need is three VITAL things:

  • Share and Like us on Facebook with one easy click!
  • Yell it from the rooftops, badger your friends, drag them to the computer and make them check out our awesome Indiegogo campaign!
  • Take a moment and reflect. Realize the many positive changes happening in the world right now. How amazing it is to be alive and a part of a collective loving, nurturing, and all encompassing consciousness. Then, enjoy the rest of your day!
