“The Perfect Wave”

Based on a true story, “The Perfect Wave” tells the journey of Ian McCormack’s search for real life in a world full of shadows.

Ian grew up surfing the waters of New Zealand’s eastern shore and with a searching heart caught glimpses of truth in the moment on a wave, when the world came together in perfection. Wanting to dive deeper, he sets out on a journey with his best friend that will change his life as they chase the perfect wave.

Traveling through Australia, Southeast Asia and Africa they surf incredible breaks and swirl in the life of ongoing travel, party and adventure, looking for the force that drives the world. When he meets Annabel, a striking and kindred soul, he abandons his friend on a new quest of love and ecstasy. Jealousy overtakes their love and broken by his own soul, and he chases her to the island paradise of Mauritius to win her back.

He finds the perfect life in this surfer’s heaven until a diving accident, where he is stung by deadly box jellyfish, leaves him fighting for his life and forcing him to choose between the truth of life and permanent death.

It is a full-length, dramatic, theatrical feature film shot in South Africa, Australia, Bali, Mauritius, New Zealand and Java under the direction of internationally renowned commercial director Bruce Macdonald, and produced by seven-time Emmy winning US producer S Bryan Hickox.

 

“Persecuted”

Nationally acclaimed evangelist John Luther is the last obstacle in the way of sweeping religious reform in the States. When a U.S. Senator and Luther’s own supporters abduct and frame him in the murder of an innocent teenage girl, an unprecedented era of persecution is unleashed. Out on personal recognizance, Luther escapes police surveillance in search of the truth. And suddenly, a once-normal life is targeted by a team of ex-military operatives who wage a relentless campaign to eliminate the incriminating evidence. As evangelist turned fugitive, Luther vows to expose anyone involved with or profiting from the girl’s murder; a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that will threaten the entire Christian community in America.

“Persecuted” stars James Remar, Dean Stockwell, Raoul Trujillo and directed by Daniel Lusko.

“Holy Ghost” is a feature film documentary that follows filmmaker Darren Wilson as he travels the world attempting to make a movie that is completely led by the Holy Spirit. At times challenging, but always uplifting, Holy Ghost reveals a God far bigger and more active than previously thought.
