About

To many people, Aquaman isn't the coolest superhero out there. He is often seen as the guy who is only useful in the water. The television show "Superfriends" is largely responsible for this. I mean they made him ride around the ocean on a jetski. The one area in the entire universe where he has a supreme advantage over the other heroes, he uses something that anyone in the world can use. 

"Superfriends" wasn't friendly to Aquaman.

___

Thanks to the incredible New 52 series and the Injustice: Gods Among Us game, his image has been depicted much more accurately. Unfortunately there are still many people who don't know how awesome he really is. It is unknown when or if Warner Brothers & DC will give Aquaman a movie. We think that it is finally time for him to get an accurate adaptation on film. That is why my brother and I wrote The Dweller of the Depths.

The origin of Arthur Curry is an incredible story. The Dweller of the Depths will explore this story in a way that had never been attempted before. How was he born? Who are the Atlanteans? Why does he adopt the name Aquaman? How does his fantastical world relate to our real world? Who is Black Manta? Our goal is to tell the story of Aquaman in the most natural and epic way, while at the same time staying true and honest to the elements that make him such a great character. Our portrayal of Aquaman is greatly inspired by the Brightest Day Series, Adventure Comics #452-455, Aquaman (Volume 4) and the brilliant New 52 Series.

Many characters from Aquamans universe will be in the film; including:

- Mera 

- Nuidis Vulko

- Tom Curry

- Black Manta

- Jim Mason

- Arthur Curry Jr.

In order to share this story, we need a little bit of help. Any contribution that you make will go towards:

- Renting of camera, lighting and sound equipment.

- Costume Design

- Actors & Crew

- Location fees

- Visual Effects

- Post Production (Editing, Color Correction, Score)

Stretch Goals

Because Kickstarter is an "all-or-nothing" platform, we decided to make our goal the minimum amount required. The more funding we receive, the more epic of a film we can create. With $10,000+ we will be able to include more scenes in the film. These scenes will be heavily shot in water. The money will allow us to purchase the necessary equipment to shoot in water as well as pay for the location. The extra money will also allow us to design some incredible costumes. This is the chance to finally give Aquaman a film! Let's make it as great as it can possibly be!

Risks and challenges

As with any collaborative process, challenges may occur. I am confident that if any problem does occur, we will be able to tackle it. Filming underwater is not an easy task. However if we receive enough funding for such scenes, we can acquire the necessary equipment to confidently shoot them. Nothing is ever 100%, especially underwater, but we will work our hardest to ensure we make an incredible film.
