But things are much different in Arizona and the guys must adapt to their new surroundings. The beautiful Nika helps them get settled in and together they attempt to bring the loose based wake community together by throwing a huge end-of-summer wakeboard competition.
Tentpole – This being the first and only wakeboard movie you can guarantee an industry-wide following and supportive and loyal fans.
THE SHAKE THE LAKE EVENT
Donations will go towards the marketing and promotion of the film. We need to print our executive summaries, travel and communicate to the wake companies and spread all of our materials around Hollywood. We're asking for $12,500 which will allow us to cover our concept artists and pre-visual designer fees so we can get the film production ready. Any extra that is raised will go toward the inclusion of the action sports communities involvement in the project and hiring key people to help put in the leg work while the film is in development and pre-production. Cheers and thank you for your contribution and support. SHAKE THE LAKE - ZB, MB - ELEVATED
Are you going to BRO out our favorite sport and make a cheesy embarrassing film that will tick off the wakeboarding community?
Most definitely NOT!!! We came up with a solid storyline and loveable fun characters. The plot of the film could stand on it's own. It's a bonus (a REALLY BIG BONUS) that we can set all of the above into the extreme sports community and wakeboard sport and culture.
Shake The Lake was inspired by actual wakeboarding culture and Wake events/competitions. First and foremost we wanted to capture an accurate depiction of the lifestyle and feel of the riders, fans, events and companies involved. We didn't set out to make an R or a PG movie, we just wrote down the best story we could and in our opinion it sits right in the middle at PG-13. It has enough edge to keep the street credit high but there's nothing that would keep the youngsters from having a good time watching the film. We want this film to do to wakeboarding what "The Fast and The Furious" did to import cars.
